Scotties Fishing Derby prize catch

Castlegar’s winter fishing derby nets big fish.

More than 100 people entered the Scotties fishing derby on Saturday. The snow stopped, the wind died, and the sun came out. Jeff Townsend (pictured) had the winning fish, a 15-pound bull trout. Runner up Jason Ozeroff caught a 13-pound bull trout, and Neil Smitheram was third with a 12-pound bull troute. One 10-pound rainbow was also brought in.
