William Shaffer was a private citizen from York County who wanted to teach City youth a recreational hobby that they could carry throughout their lifetime. His efforts evolved into the current annual Trout Fishing Derby.

This event is sponsored by York City Recreation and Parks Bureau, Etzweiler Funeral Homes, the Izaak Walton League York Chapter, and Dicks Sporting Goods in East York.
