Grafton Lakes Ice Fishing Contest
Grafton Lakes State Park’s annual ice fishing contest is on Saturday, February 13, from 5:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The contest is open on all the ponds in the park except White Lily. Participants can register until 11 a.m. the morning of the event at the park’s maintenance shop. A $10 entry fee for adults 16 and older is required to participate. All first place adult winners will receive a large cash prize for the longest length catch of trout, walleye/chain pickerel and yellow perch. Children may enter at no charge and winning entries will receive gift certificates and other prizes. February 13 is a free fishing weekend in New York State, so no fishing license is required this year. Please call 518-279-1155 for ice conditions.
