The forecast for last weekend was for rain and wind but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the anglers that fished in the annual Quincy Chamber of Commerce Trout Derby. Over 100 people registered for the event that took place on Burke and Quincy lakes. Fishing at these lakes has been good since the March 1st opener and was excellent during the derby. Quincy Lake was the most productive for anglers this year. Thanks to local Aikins Market, Raceway Technologies, Pepsi and Vantage Data Centers, $3,600 worth of big rainbow were added for the derby. There was over $5,000 worth of prizes handed out to the derby winners and through raffles. In the Youth Division, Julian Rubio won an Xbox for a 22 ½-inch fish. Ruby Prunedo turned in 14 pounds of trout and won a drone. Prior to the weigh in, I had met Holly Bogart, who said she was a big fan of mine. Turns out she swept the Adult Division, with a 22 ½-inch rainbow and over 13 pounds of trout. Derby organizers made sure that kids that participated received a rod and reel, or a tackle box. The Quincy Chamber and volunteers did a great job again this year.
