The Easton Elks Lodge will sponsor a free Youth Fishing derby at the Bay Street ponds on Saturday, July 13th from 8:00 AM to 12:30 (rain or shine). The event is open to all elementary and middle school youth in Caroline and Talbot counties. The ponds will be stocked with blue gills and sun fish by DNR before the event. Awards will be given for Largest and Most fish in 3 age groups. Rods and reels will be available for those not bringing their own.
