Hello, Dolly!

Fred Maloff took home the top prize at last weekend’s Scotties Marina Fishing Derby. Weighing in at 17.3 lbs., Maloff’s Dolly Varden trout beat out the second place contestant by 10 lbs. Tim Strelieff was awarded second prize with his 7.8-lb. rainbow trout and Ida Price came in third with her 6.75-lb. Dolly Varden trout. The derby was sold out with 100 participants — some starting as early as 5 a.m. in the frigid temperatures. The cold weather didn’t seem to bother those on the boats, however, as they came back to fire pits and a hot barbecue lunch at the end of the day. The Scotties Marina Fishing Derby is held annually. This was the sixth event.
