Icecube Begins: Striped Bass

May 05, 2018



For the past 50 years MSBC, in partnership with the City of Milford, has organized and run the annual trout derby which takes place at the two ponds in downtown Milford. The Trout Derby is held the first Saturday in May.  This is a great opportunity for those children who might not otherwise catch a trout to do so. The ponds are stocked with several hundred trout up to 6 lbs. Following the derby is a casting contest. When the casting contest is over there is the awarding of prizes and trophies in various categories, and a well-stocked raffle.
