Fishin' with the Fuzz

Event Date: 
Saturday, May 18, 2024 - 9:15am to 1:00pm

SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2024 at 9:15 am

     We are having our 3rd annual FISHIN’ with the Fuzz Derby.  The derby itself will be for children under the age of 18, but all ages are encouraged to come.  We will once again be holding the derby at the Iron Horse Industrial Park (where the blimp is).  This year we are holding the derby a week later than the last few years in hopes of getting a little bit of warmer weather.  Here is the lineup for this year’s event.

     9:30 – Members of the Fremont RC Flyers will be setting up an area to show their planes and other items.  They will also be bringing two simulators for the kids to operate.  This will be a great opportunity for the kids to have fun learning about this cool hobby and get some hands-on interaction.

     10:30 to 12:30 – The Derby will begin.  Same as the last two years, people coming to the derby will have access to the entire pond area to fish where they want.

     12:30 – There will be hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks.  During lunch, there will be a prize presentation for the top three fishermen.  As always, every child will leave with something to help them on their future fishing journeys.

     After the presentation, please feel free to continue to fish the area.  We’re hoping that this is a great opportunity for all of us to enjoy some of the natural habitat we have in our town.  We are asking that anyone interested in attending please register with the Police Department by email to Sergeant Buckley at  This way we can gauge how much food we need, and then the registration can be sent to you.  Or you can pick up the registration form at the Town Hall, Ellis School or the Fremont Public Library and drop it off at the Police Department by May 15 at 4:00 pm.  Registration forms are also available on the homepage of the Town website.

     Please remember that although Fremont FD will be present, all children are under the care and responsibility of their parent(s) or guardians.  We will have volunteers walking the grounds to measure the fish that are caught.

     We look forward to seeing you there!
