June 15th, 2016 · No Comments


Lake George is ready for the second annual King George Fishing Derby July 8-10. Are you ready? Do you have what it takes to win money for catching the biggest Lake Trout or Bass?

If you think so, join hundreds of other anglers and get your entries into the Derby officials by July 1.

You can find the entry form – electronic or in PDF form – on the event’s website at http://www.KingGeorgeFishingDerby.com

Three prized fish are the targets for the derby — Lake Trout, Largemouth Bass and Smallmouth Bass.

Adults and children are invited to compete, as there are separate divisions for each. In each division, the top five sizes of each of the three species of fish will be given prizes: Cash prizes for the adult division are $2,500 for first place, $1,000 for second, $750 for third, $500 for forth and $250 for fifth. There will be merchandise prizes for the Junior division (for those who are under 16 by the end of the tournament).

Adults can register for $40 by July 1, and juniors can register for $30. It will cost $10 more after July 1. Fees for the entries are non-refundable.
