LOWVILLE – Beaver Camp will host its 22nd annual ice fishing tournament, the David Tuttle Memorial Beaver Camp Ice Fishing Derby in February.
From 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on February 5, pike at least 15 inches long and yellow perch at least 8 inches long captured by children 17 years of age and under, and pike at least 18 inches long and yellow perch 12 inches or more captured by adults can be entered in the draw which will take place at 2:30 p.m.
State fishing regulations will be followed during the event. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
Participating anglers can register upon arrival at the camp lodge – $ 5 for children and $ 10 for adults. Masks are mandatory for anyone entering the pavilion.
According to the organizers, the goal is to offer a non-competitive day of fishing for the whole family.
Derby proceeds help provide scholarships for children who cannot afford summer camp through the Beaver Camp Campership Fund.
In 2020, the derby raised over $ 1,000, which helped 48 children who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to attend camp in 2021 with a total disbursement of $ 8,700.
David Tuttle, who died in 2012, was instrumental in establishing the derby.
