The Flin Flon Trout Festival fishing derby gets underway Thursday when tickets go on sale and runs until June 30th. Derby Coordinator Dave Osika says the derby is for Lake Trout and it goes from Trout Lake or Embury Lake all the way to the Cranberry Lakes and whatever in between only on the Manitoba side and what they’re going to do is people can go to either the Gas Bar, Gateway, United Rentals or Ruby’s to buy your ticket which will include the measuring tape that will have to be in the picture of the fish.
Osika adds the entry fee is 40 dollars and there will be five prizes starting at 15 hundred dollars down to 250 along with draws for other prizes. For a list of all the rules and to submit your pictures go to their website www.flinflontroutfestival.com. The winners will be announced July 3rd on CFAR and they will be contacted by the committee.
