Ernie Eddy Memorial Children’s Ice Fishing Derby 2016

March 5, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Ernie Eddy Memorial Children’s Ice Fishing Derby of 2016 registered 162 children.  They caught and registered 157 fish: 84 perch, 70 splake and 3 pike.  Biologists of the MNR also attended.  Their official role was conducting a fish count and study of the splake, and in addition, they introduced the children to biological study of fishing and stocking of lakes.  The fishing derby this year was conducted from the newly refurbished shelter.  Its larger, drier and brighter character elicited many positive comments.  As in former years, each participating child brought home a prize.
