North Thompson Star/Journal

The 63rd Annual Squam Bay Fish Derby on Adams Lake was held July 8, 2018, with 193 anglers turning up at the Agate Bay Boat Launch to take part.

Winner of the $600 first prize was Dan Stoelwinder of Rayleigh with a 15 lb Lake Trout. Second place went to Frank Holt of Barriere with an 11 lb, 9 oz Lake Trout and Holt chose a a brand new generator as his prize. Ed Stoelwinder of Williams Lake hooked third prize with an 11 lb, 6 oz Lake Trout, and won $200 for his catch.

The Largest Rainbow of the derby was a 7 lb, 9 oz trout caught by Beverly Rice of Vernon.

There was also a $30 Hidden Weight Prize at 2 lb, 8 oz won by Wyatt Hunt of Cremona, Alberta.

Ray Nolette of Sorrento, B.C., won the $50 door prize.

There were 27 fish weighed in this year, and every fisherman that weighed a fish received a prize. With over 65 prizes to choose from, many people that didn’t catch a fish still won a prize by getting their names drawn.

Thank yous went out to all those who helped to sell tickets and to all the sponsors who were so generous.

“It is the generosity of businesses like this that keep our derby the ongoing success that it is,” said organizer Jackie Van Sickle, “And thanks also to all the people in the community that make this derby happen.”
