Fishing derby reels them in

SAXTONS RIVER — A breeze that kept the bugs at bay made for a fun time and lots of winners at this year's annual Saxtons River Rec fishing derby May 5.

Organizer Samantha Fletcher reported a good turnout, with a chance to win trophies in three age groups.

- Ages 7 to 10 winner for first, biggest and overall was Braeden Wyman, while Madison Duby took the prize for most fish.

- Ages 11 to 14 overall winner was Mack Ross. First fish and most fish prizes went to Gabriela Beayon, and Remy LaCroix caught the biggest fish.

Additional prizes were won by Joshua Dupuis and Carter Fisher.
