The annual Great Meredith Rotary Fishing Derby will be held February 7 – 8, 2015, as long as the ice is thick enough to fish. In this popular tournament, fish landed through the ice on any New Hampshire water body are eligible for prizes.

The top 3 prizes are $15,000 for first, $5,000 for second and $3,000 for third. These prizes will be drawn from a group of 14 potential top-prize winners.

On both Saturday and Sunday, cash prizes of $250, $200, $150, $100 and $50 will be awarded for the 5 heaviest black crappie, cusk, lake trout, pickerel, rainbow trout, yellow perch and white perch, respectively. Additionally, the heaviest fish in each category will be awarded $500 on Feb. 8.

Entry fee: $30 per person
