            Summer is the ideal time to connect with family and friends and bond over some Fox River fishing.  What better way than to relax and fish as a part of Montgomery Fest’s 45th Annual Family Fun Carp Derby? On August 12th join a family member or two or three or a neighbor you’ve been meaning to catch up with, and bring your fishing rods. Between the hours of 6 am and 2 pm you can fish for carp, while enjoying the fresh air and beautiful setting along our river.

            Trophies will be awarded for the GRAND CHAMPION (largest carp by weight) as well as trophies according to two age groups.  For ages 15 and under, there will be trophies for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Runners Up.  For those16 and up, similar trophies will be awarded.  

            So, join us on Sunday, August 12th and catch carp in the peaceful Fox River in Montgomery. You’ll have great fish stories to tell everyone for the next week or more!
