La Grande Optimists host fishing derby

It's a whopper! This young man caught the big fish - a catfish no less - at the 2009 Morgan Lake Fishing Derby on April 25. The fishing derby is coordinated by the Optimist Club of La Grande, Oregon and sponsored by Bi-Mart.

One hundred and eighteen young anglers participated and awards were given to the top three fishermen in categories 6 and younger, 7 to 10 and 11-16 age groups for the heaviest fish.

According to Optimist fishing derby officials, all other fish caught were trout that had been stocked in the lake a few days earlier. The catfish was 1 lb 8 oz. and the top trout was 1 lb 6 oz.
