Inaugural ice-fishing derby a success

The Rainy River Recreation Centre hosted its first annual ice-fishing derby on Saturday (Feb. 10), which drew 153 registered participants.

The derby featured a 50 percent payout, with the other 50 going towards youth programming at the centre.

Prizes (both cash and donated items) were given to the top four participants for walleye, northern, and the kids' division.
