Cassadaga, NY

2020 Lew Mead Annual Youth Fishing Tournament Participants:

The Cassadaga Lakes Association will hold their 27th annual Lew Mead Memorial Fishing Tournament on Saturday, June 27th 2020.

FREE to all youths age 16 and under

NO fishing license necessary

Our event this year will be a little different than in the past due to the importance of social distancing. There will be NO activities held at the DEC boat launch on Dale Drive – instead contestants will…

1. Start fishing any time after 7 a.m. and stop fishing by 2 p.m.

2. Take a Selfie picture of themselves (with or without a fish)

3. Text or eMail their photo along with their Name, Age and Postal


Pictures will be posted on the CLA website and a 2020 Lew Meed Fishing Derby Medallion will be sent to the mail address provided. This is a great chance to promote safe family fun on the lakes while all of us are doing are part to keep Safe.

We are sorry but we are not able to award prizes or give-aways this year due to economic and logistical considerations. We hope you agree that a fishing day on the beautiful Cassadaga Lakes is a priceless prize in itself... fish or no fish! The picture of the biggest fish for each category will be submitted to the Dunkirk Observer for publication.

If you have Questions or need additional info. call....
