The annual Trout Derby that the Quincy Chamber does each spring has been scheduled for this year. It will take place on Saturday, March 7th, and instead of being held at Burke Lake, it will be at Quincy Lake. This has always been the official kick off of the trout fishing season on the east side of the mountains, and I am sure that the shores will be lined with eager anglers. Once again there will be cash and prizes handed out to the derby winners, and a guided fishing trip is the grand prize in the adult division. Derby tickets are $30 for adults and everyone under 17 years old gets to enter for free. You will want to buy a raffle ticket, too. The lucky ticket holder will win a 12-foot Marlon aluminum boat and trailer and a 4 hp Yamaha four stroke motor. Derby tickets are just five bucks. It sure looks like the weather is going to cooperate this year and Quincy Lake should be ice free for the event. Burke Lake was rehabbed last fall, and although there will be fish in it this spring, the fishing will be much better for bigger fish in Quincy Lake this season.
