Dust off that pole and tackle box! The Methuen Fishing Derby is set for May 11 from 10am-1pm at Forest Lake. This free event is open to residents of all ages. No registration is required, and participants can fish from the shore or from a boat. A limited number of rods will be available to borrow. Winners will receive trophies. Lunch and refreshments will be provided by the Methuen Firefighters Local 1691. The event is organized by the Recreation Department. Last year, Adriel Wiggins (shown with his grandfather) snagged this snazzy sunfish during the derby. ML file photo
