Meredith Ice Fishing Derby

Well, we are going from doggies to fish : >

Let's meet at the registration trailers (you can see all the fish hanging that won prizes) on Saturday, February 8 to photograph the fishing derby. It's really quite the event.

I've suggested a TIME CHANGE to 11 a.m. so that it might be a bit warmer on the lake.

DRESS WARMLY in layers with wool socks and good boots. We will be out in the middle of the lake - photographing fish, people who fish and anything else that might strike your fancy. It's a big party with snowmobiles and fishing houses (not quite sure of the exact term but sometimes, the guys let you look inside of them.)

So bring your curiousity, some money for food/beverages and your camera - it will be a fun event.

My cell is[masked] in the event you aren't able to figure out where you/we are. By all accounts, the weather looks great for it - good and cold. For more info on the derby, you can check it out here: www.meredithrotary.com

See you Saturday at 11 ~

    never found the meeting place ... I thought it would be easy to spot. After searching for an hour, I drove to Alton Bay and took pics of the planes landing on the frozen lake -- so all was not lost. Sorry to miss the group.

      you are going to laugh (that's why I'll tell you), but I went to Laconia not Meredith---just realized it when I got home.

    Have to say no to this weekend as my plans have changed because I'm sporting a new cast on my left arm. :-( Will have to see how I feel a week from now and maybe can catch the dogsled races. Have fun up there!

    All ~ although the dog sled race is postponed until February 14/16, I have been checking the fishing derby and it is still on. So my plan is to meet at 10 in Meredith, at the trailers/entry way (where they hang the fish) to photograph on the ice. So I am still planning to photograph on Saturday, February 8 (unless they cancel the Fishing Derby).

      Please keep us posted... will we be able to go out on the ice.... will they use ice huts??

      February 3, 2014

    • Cynthia

      Yes, I will update this Dena. Yes, you go out on the ice to the middle of the lake; it's quite the experience.

    I saw that this event was postponed until the following weekend... I'm still going ! ... Is there a charge to get in or is it by donation ?

    February 2, 2014

  • Cynthia

    Yes ... I just saw this. Thank you all for the update. I heard a report on NHPR tonight talking about soft ice so I'm wondering if the Meredith Fishing Derby will also be rescheduled. To be continued ... stay tuned.
