SAXTONS RIVER -- The fish will be biting at the Saxtons River Rec Area Saturday, May 4 when the annual fishing derby gets under way at 9 a.m.

Free registration for children 4-14 begins at 8:30 a.m. The pond is located 1.3 miles north of the rec area on Pleasant Valley Road.

Prizes for the event have been donated by J & H Sporting Goods, and trophies are being underwritten by the Saxtons River Village Market and the Saxtons River Inn.

Participation in the derby is free, but the rec area will be conducting a 50/50 raffle and a bake sale to benefit its activities. Volunteers to help with the derby or provide baked goods are needed.
