NORWAY — Norway-Paris Fish & Game has set the dates for the annual ice fishing derby as sunrise to sunset Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 27 and 28.

The derby is open to all area lakes and ponds. Fish need to be weighed and registered at the Little Red School House, Route 118, Norway Lake.

There are $50 prizes for the largest bass, togue, pike, salmon, pickerel, brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout/splake in the adult category. Juniors (12 and under) receive trophies for the largest fish in each of the categories as well as a prize for any fish brought in.

Derby tickets are $1 each and also enter a person into a drawing for several prizes donated by local area businesses and club supporters. Tickets are available from club members and local sports shops.

Proceeds of the derby help the club send several area youngsters to the University of Maine 4-H camp at Bryant Pond for a week in the summer.

Stop in at the Little Red School House for hamburgers, hot dogs, homemade goodies, 50/50 tickets and fish stories.
