This Saturday, April 24, the opening day of trout season, the Northport Sportsmen Club sponsors a fishing derby at the Old Mill Pond in Northport. Fishing is reserved for children, with parents helping them. The club will have two tents overlooking the millpond – one with hot dogs and the other with prizes such as fishing poles and games. Trophies will be awarded to kids catching the largest trout.
Next Saturday, May 1, is their annual Smelt Supper at the Northport Fire Hall. The Northport Sportsmen’s Club has been hosting this event for years and they know how to cook smelt and all the trimmings. The dinner and bucket raffle help raise funds for a variety of community projects sponsored by the club. Dinner starts at 4 p.m. and runs until 8 p.m. Adults are $10, children 5-12 are $5 and preschoolers are free.
