Could be final derby at pumping station

Amherst's annual youth fishing derby was held Friday at the pumping station pond in Brookdale.

BROOKDALE – Several dozen people were on hand Friday for what could be Amherst’s last youth fishing derby at the pumping station in Brookdale.

Agriculture and Fisheries dumped several hundred trout in the pond earlier in the day and participants were able to compete for the longest fish caught in the eight and under, 10 and under and under 15 categories.

Amherst had originally cancelled the derby because it sold the property to the province last year. It declared the 40-hectare property as surplus in 2010.

The province and the town were able to work out an agreement to allow its use this year, but it’s highly unlikely it will be available in 2015.
