The Ridgefield Park Environmental Commission is teaming up with the Hudson River Fisherman's Association to host a Fishing Derby for those who are the ages of 15 or under.
The derby is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 4 (Rain Date Sunday, November 5) from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Waterfront Park located at 24 Industrial Avenue in Ridgefield Park behind the Village's DPW building.
The Hudson River Fishermen's Association will supply tackle and bait. There will be plenty of volunteers on hand to help with baiting hooks and teaching those how to cast their fishing line.
Prizes will be awarded for a variety of categories such as biggest catch.
Adults and all ages 16 and over will NOT need a NJ fishing license, if they wish to fish during the derby, but MUST register (FOR FREE) with the NJ Saltwater Recreational Registry Program at http://www.nj.gov/dep/saltwaterregistry/. Additional information about the upcoming fishing derby may be obtained by emailing the Ridgefield Park Environmental Commission at RPEnvironmentalCommission@gmail.com
