About Town: Fishing Derby

Chronicling Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.

This weekend the annual Fishing Derby was held at the Tarrytown Lakes.

According to Sleepy Hollow Recreation Supervisor Robin Pell, there were about 35 children who came out to fish. Turnout was a little lower than usual, likely due to the rainy weather.

The biggest fish was caught by 11-year-old Nasir Williamson. The most fish were caught by Alec and Hannah Bjorkland. The smallest fish was caught by Lucy Bidel.

Special thanks to Joe McCarthy being the fishing rod repair man, and thanks to the Sleepy Hollow Recreation Department for sharing the photos.

Hey, Sleepy Hollow Rec Department, how about providing more captions for those photos!

These pictures are adorable! I especially love the one where Alec is putting a fish on his sister Hannah's shoulder and she's looking a little leery - but all the photos are fun.
