Annual Kids' Trout Fishing Derby is May 11th -- and It's Free!
Catch the fun at our 27th Annual Kids' Trout Fishing Derby Saturday, May 11th in Powder Mills Park at the Powder Horn Lodge. The event is in conjunction with the Town of Pittsford Parks & Rec Department and the Monroe County Parks Department.
The event is FREE and is exclusively for kids age 15 and younger.  Registration is available online prior to the event, or in person starting at 8:00 am. on Derby Day.
The fishing contest will run from 9:00 to 11:00 am, followed by an awards ceremony and fish hatchery tour at 11:30 am.  Complimentary refreshments will be served.
The Fish Hatchery at Powder Mills Park will be stocking fish for this event. Donations will be accepted on their behalf.  In addition, special thanks are due to The Riedman Foundation for funding and operating the Hatchery and making the Pittsford Rotary Club Fishing Derby possible.
Rotarian and fishing enthusiast Harry Womeldorf organized the club’s first “Kids Derby” in 1997. Since then, more than 3,000 children have taken part in this Western New York event. The emphasis is on experiencing the adventure and excitement of fishing with family members of all ages.

Statement of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Rotary, promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.

We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.

We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice. 

Pittsford Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.
