–With temperatures well below freezing this week, conditions should be perfect for the annual Ice Fishing Derby, being held as a part of the Frost Bite Olympics. Organizer Jeremy Ruehle recently spoke with KLGA about the event this weekend at Smith Lake.
Ruehle says the competition is divided up into 2 separate categories for those who come out to Smith Lake Saturday morning.
Ruehle says they also have raffle tickets available, with tons of great prizes available.
Some equipment will be provided, but it is recommended you bring your own. Anyone aged 15 and younger must be accompanied by an adult, and participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather. Free popcorn and hot chocolate will be provided for those in attendance.
