Registration begins at 11:45 a.m. at the Cranberry Lake pavilion near the playground. There is no charge for the event. Fish are brought to the pavilion to be measured and released. Final measuring takes place at 3:45 p.m. and an awards presentation takes place at approximately 4:00 p.m.

Prizes are awarded for the longest and most fish caught in each of three age categories.
