The Quincy Chamber of Commerce Trout Derby that was a big success. Anglers really liked the idea of having a two-day event, and also liked catching the trout planted by the Chamber. A total of 182 people registered to participate this year: 96 adults and 86 kids. The number of kids registered in the youth category was the highest ever and speaks to the family aspect of the derby. Organizers made sure that everyone age 17 and younger got a prize, usually a rod and reel. Also appreciated by those who participated was the ability to fish both Quincy and Burke lakes. There was a really big winner in the Youth Category. Jasmin Guiteron won for the Longest Fish with a trout of 22.5 inches, and for the Total Weight with a stringer that weighed 6.35 pounds. The Adult Category winner for the longest fish was won by Abraham Santos with a 20.25 inch trout. The winner of the Adult Total Weight category was won by Juan Rios with 8.8 pounds of trout.
