Close to 300 people entered into the annual Stuart Lake Fishing Derby during the Canada Day week. While the numbers were down a little, it was still a good number, given the wet weather and sometimes rough waters on the lake throughout the week. The weather did improve for the weekend, with calmer waters, the occasional visit from the sun and according to Miguel Romero, Fort St. James Chamber of Commerce manager, “we did well.”

The winners of the derby were: First – Terry Naef with a 10.8 lb fish for a prize of $10,000, second – James Fry with an 8.1 lb fish for a prize of $2,500, third – Warren Redmond with a 7.8 lb fish for a prize of $1,000, fourth – Siegfried GruegerК with a 7.1 lb fish for a prize of $1,000, and the Participatory winner was Denise Paul.
