Fishing families can participate in a couple of fishing derbies in our area this spring. The tagged trout derby at Burke Lake on Saturday, March 3rd is the first where big cash prize and other items can be won by those who fish in it. There are really fun, free events for kids in the month of April that I will be telling you about in future reports, and then a brand new derby is going to be held at Bridgeport on Rufus Woods Reservoir. I just talked to the folks that are organizing this one, and got an update on their plans. There will be an informative meeting on Friday, May 11th, the day before the derby starts, and I also learned where the proceeds of the derby are going for this event. According to derby organizers, after the costs of conducting the derby have been covered, the money raised by ticket sales will be spent on buying triploids to be planted in Rufus Woods. This should really help sustain this popular fishery. Keep an eye on my reports and web site for more information on the Rufus Woods derby as I get more information. I the mean time, get your tickets for the Burke Lake Derby!
