Annual Crappie Derby in Whitney Point Canceled Due to Lack of Ice
Monday, February 4, 2013
The Broome County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Whitney Point Sportsmen’s Association on Monday announced the cancellation of this years’ crappie derby.
This year marked the 40th annual attempt to stage this event.
The Broome County Department of Parks and Recreation evaluated the status of Whitney Point Lake on Monday morning and measured only eight inches of ice.
These ice dimensions are not believed to be sufficiently safe for the large number of participants expected for this upcoming Saturday’s scheduled NYS Crappie Derby.
The Derby has been canceled several times over the past few years due to a lack of ice on the Whitney Point Reservoir.
