Update 5/28/2021 at 2:00 PM – Due to anticipated inclement weather this weekend, the 2nd annual youth fishing derby at the new pier at Newtown Park in Pocomoke has been rescheduled for June 5.
This event will begin with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new ADA compliant pier at 9:15 a.m., with the youth fishing derby to take place from shortly thereafter between the hours of 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. An awards luncheon will take place at 11:30 a.m, following the fishing derby. There is no cost to participate in the tournament or the luncheon.
Participants should bring their own fishing rods and bait. A parent or guardian should be present, at all times, to assist their children with a fun day of fishing on Pocomoke City, Maryland.
The pier is open to those of all ages daily and is an ideal fishing spot. Permitted activities at the pond include kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding. Swimming and ice skating are strictly prohibited at all times!
