One of the events that anglers look forward to every year is the annual Quincy Valley Chamber of Commerce Trout Derby. This takes place in the Quincy Wildlife Area and this year anglers can fish both Burke and Quincy lakes to win prizes. This derby used to be scheduled for the first weekend in March, since this is when several lakes area open to fishing each spring. All too often the derby had to be delayed due to ice. This year the event will happened on March 25th and 26th, so no worries. Anglers will be happy to learn that the Quincy Chamber has purchased additional trout to be released into these lakes prior to the event. Most will be of “catchable” size but a good number of whoppers are included in the release. To learn more about the derby and even register you can go to my website at and click on the “Something Fishy in Quincy” logo on the Home Page. There will be cash prizes awarded for the Longest Fish in both adult and youth categories, and as usual there will be some great prizes to win through raffles. I hope to see you there!
