For just under six decades anglers have been congregating annually at Squam Bay on Adams Lake to try their hand at catching “the big one”.
And 2013 will be no exception.
The 58th Annual Squam Bay Fish Derby is scheduled to take place on July 14. First prize will be a cheque for $600, with second place taking home $200.
There will be many other great prizes at the derby, including a $50 door prize and a hidden weight prize.
Derby rules stipulate that only game fish will be weighed, and no fish under two pounds will be accepted.
Tickets to enter the event are $15 each, and are available at the Adams Lake Store, Barriere Auto Parts, Christy Allen in Brennan Creek, or by calling Sue at 250-672-9615, or Jacki at 250-672-5750. You can also register on July 14 between the morning hours of 6 to 9:00 a.m. at the boat launch in Squam Bay on Adams Lake.
Organizers say they expect a good turnout and a fun day for all who participate. Grandma Alice’s Concession will be on site, and a “no rain day” has been ordered.
