WARREN, NJ - Warren's 31st annual fishing derby is in the books. 
 
Started by one man, Bruce Vitale, the event has grown over the years and is one event that residents agree help make the town great.
 
 
Vitale wanted to share his love of the outdoors and fishing with the children and parents. And he wanted to make it free so every resident could participate. So what better way to do that then to start a fishing derby with the blessing of the Warren Township Committee.
 
Over the years, Bruce enlisted others to help make it an event you don’t want to miss, starting with The Warren Blue Ridge Sportmens Club who bring volunteers, hot dogs & burgers, zeppoles and Italian ice. The Club also helps kids fix their hooks, lines and bobbers and offers loaner poles for those who don’t have one. They raffle off several poles, reels and tackle boxes during the derby. Bruce and the club walk around the pond teaching the kids and parents how to cast.
 
Check back for more photos, thanks and all of the contest winners.
