A great day of fishing for island kids

On behalf of the Jamestown Striper Club, I would like to thank all those who helped make our annual Kids’ Fishing Derby at the North reservoir a huge success.

Thanks to the Jamestown Town Council for issuing a special event permit, which authorizes use of the reservoir for one day each year, and to the town’s public works and recreation departments for mowing and trimming the banks of the pond.

A special thanks to our local business sponsors, The Chemical Company, Art’s Auto Body, Zeek’s Creek Bait and Tackle, and Joseph Yoffa Custom Woodworking and Milling.

The weather and the fish cooperated for a great morning of catchand release fishing, with much excitement as many young anglers were catching their first fish ever – hopefully to be “hooked” on the sport of fishing for life.

See you next year!
