Go Fish! Rotary’s Annual Fishing Derby is Back April 23


The Rotary Club of Weston & Wayland invites kids (and their accompanying parents) to their annual Fishing Derby–a 40+ year tradition–on Sunday, April 23 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the Weston High School Pond. While the Owl has no clear idea of what kind of fish are in the pond, it is safe to imagine that it is free of sharks, barracuda and stinging jellyfish. Because….science. No comment on Sharknado possibilities.

Please note that there is no swimming in the pond because you have no idea what really lurks there – possibly moss bonkers, possibly trash and most probably some vape cartridges. Did I say that out loud? Yes. Here’s an idea–the Weston Annual Trash Clean-Up is also that week so feel free to fish out things that aren’t fish and throw them away. Throw the fish back. Trash out; fish in.

Bring your own gear, bait (no lures, please), and bucket. Fishing starts at 9:00 a.m. sharp! Prizes are in four age categories up to age 14. Please note this is a free event, and you can register online to attend by clicking here.

  • Thank you for the publicity for this event. The pond was stocked this week with trout. 3 large trout (10-12″) have special pink tags that will earn a cash prize if caught. Only paid out at the derby!
    The derby WILL happen on Sunday rain (likely) or shine (we only hope).
