The Oxford Lions Club would like to thank all involved in making this yearís perch derby a successful event. Once again, the chance to catch a tagged perch worth $1,000 drew hordes of fishermen and women to Chenango Lake. I spent my time walking around meeting new people and taking pictures. It was nice to see so many parents fishing with their children. I also held an ice fishing seminar for the Adirondack-Catskill SCI Youth day at Rockdale Rod and Gun Club this month. This program is much like the derby in that itís a chance to get children into outdoor sports. I will fully explain the event and fill the public in on a new program being held this spring in my next column.
