Welcome to another Story Saturday! Today's story is from this March, when the Fish and Game Club hosted their 36th annual Colby Classic Fishing Derby. We brought the Cure Porch on Wheels to the shores of Lake Colby and interviewed local fishermen to help document this Adirondack tradition.
Charlie Jessie, who has helped with all 36 derbies, was the one who put the first ever tagged fish into Lake Colby. A few hours later we interviewed Alyssa and her father, Henry. Alyssa (11 years old) had just caught an 8.5 lb northern pike, and Henry shared that his father was the one who caught the first tagged trout in Lake Colby!
