It was all about fishing, food and fun last weekend during the Valley Fish and Game Club’s Annual Memorial Trout Derby and Pig Roast held from April 6 to April 8.
Valley fish and game members and their families enjoyed a weekend of fishing, fantastic food at Friday’s dinner and an Easter Egg hunt on Sunday.
Madison Wirth was the kids winner in the derby landing a one-pound cutthroat trout in Mayo Lake.
Gilles Gaudreau brought in the winning trout in the adult category when he weighed in a 2.46-pound cutthroat.
Trevor Eccleston and Armin Merkel finished in a tie for second place when both their cutthroat trout tipped the scales at 2.26 pounds.
The tie was broken and Trevor awarded second place in a complex tie-breaking system that Wally Baas presided over.
All the winning trout in the adult division were caught in Cowichan Lake. The festivities wrapped up at the Valley Fish and Game clubhouse on Mayo Road on Sunday afternoon.
