The 8th Annual Collins Lake Family Fun Trout Fishing Derby took place on Saturday, April 28th. The day was cool and breezy, but that didn’t stop 65 adult and 20 youth anglers from participating in the derby and enjoying a barbecue chicken lunch provided by Buckhorn Grill. All participants also received a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream compliments of Collins Lake Resort.
Each angler was allowed to weigh in a total of two fish. Monetary prizes were awarded to the top 15 adult finishers, with $300 awarded for 1st place. The top 4 youth anglers received medals and gift cards with the winning youth also receiving a fishing rod and reel donated by Dale Daneman of Dale’s Foothill Fishing.
There were two side pots, big fish and blind bogey, available for an additional entry fee. Side pot winners split the cash proceeds with CIFFI (50/50). The winner of the Blind Bogey missed the target weight by a mere .09 oz. with 3 others at .11oz.
As always, none of our events can happen without the efforts of our dedicated volunteers. Many thanks to Don Nevis, Alan Grossman, Bill Dunn, Marty Beaver, Dale Daneman, Garry Erck, Brian Nevis and Tricia Nevis for helping to make this event a success. And a HUGE Thank You to all the participants who made this derby possible.
