Dear East Kingston Residents,

Regrettably, the Recreation Department will not be hosting the Fishing Derby this year. We apologize to everyone who was looking forward to participating. Planning and organizing the event this year had become very difficult with the long winter, sport schedules and availability of our coordinator. Coupling that with the drop in attendance over the last few years, we made the difficult decision to postpone the event for this year.

East Kingston has been very fortunate to have Donny Morrisette coordinate this event for the past 14 years. His efforts and enthusiasm have helped make this event a success in the past. I have recently met with him and we both have agreed to invest our effort into bringing the Fishing Derby back in 2016. Our goal is to make it bigger, better and more fun for the families and kids of East Kingston. We hope you all understand, as we want to be sure that we make the event the best we possibly can.

Looking forward to seeing you at the East Kingston Fishing Derby in 2016!!

The East Kingston Fishing Derby is tentatively scheduled for May 17th. Times and details will soon follow.

The Fishing Derby is an annual event held at the pond behind Foss Wasson field here in East Kingston. The pond is stocked with trout, and all who attend will enjoy a fun day of fishing while some could earn special prizes for catching the largest fish.

Prizes provided by Local area merchants. Check back for dates and details for the next Derby.
