In its eighth year, the Back Mountain Police Association Kids’ Fishing Derby gave kids a chance not only to catch trout but to meet those whose job it is to serve and protect.


The derby, held on May 10 at Frances Slocum State Park, attrracted 120 children ages 5 through 10 who finished in a secion of the lake that was fenced off and stocked with 1,000 trout.


Away from the water, the Nanticoke Conservation Club conducted a fishing instruction program for children, who also participated in t-shirt art, fire prevention education and watched a K-9 demonstration.


The fishing provided a fun atmosphere for the kids to meet the police, who helped them bait hooks and reel in fish. For many of the kids, the event game them their first opportunity to catch a trout.
