It’s time to mark your calendars for the annual Trout Fishing Derby on Burke and Quincy lakes. The Quincy Chamber of Commerce has been doing this event for years and has made some changes to make it even more popular. The best change has been to move the date to later in March. It will take place on Friday March 22nd and Saturday March 23rd this year. Too often in years past the derby date has had to be delayed because the lakes were still frozen. Once again there will be prizes awarded for the longest fish and cumulative weight in both adult and youth categories. There is always a huge pile of prizes, thanks to local sponsors, and you don’t need to catch a fish to get a chance to win. Just buy some raffle tickets. Something that is new this year is the Trout Derby Photo Contest. People can vote for their favorite photo through the Quincy Chamber’s Facebook page, and the winner will receive a 70-inch flatscreen TV. Get the details about the derby and photo contest by clicking on the Something Fishy logo on the home page of the Fishing Magician website at I hope to see you there!
