Avast, all ye anglers! RiverFest: Pirates of the Hackensack Fishing Derby, to benefit Hackensack Riverkeeper, is BACK!!

Children (and children at heart) are invited to join Hackensack Riverkeeper and the Hudson River Fishermen’s Association for a pirate-themed catch-and-release fishing derby.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions space is limited, face coverings are required and social distancing will be enforced. Spaces will be marked off and fishing gear will be sanitized in between each angler’s use. REGISTRATION IS LIMITED TO 3 PERSONS PER SPACE AND 1 ADULT IS REQUIRED IN EACH SPACE. Unfortunately Walk-ups cannot be accommodated at this time.
As space is limited, if you can no longer attend, please either cancel via EventBrite or notify the office, at (201) 968-0808, as soon as possible so we may open the space to other anglers.
Prizes will be given out for a variety of categories, including but not limited to biggest fish, first fish, etc.
