NEW BERLIN – After days of bitter cold weather, it felt almost balmy on Chenango Lake this past Saturday where 646 registered anglers tried their hand at catching the first tagged perch at the Chenango Lake Perch Derby.
Many perch were caught but none with the special tag, so the $1000 donated by NBT Bank, was given away by drawing of registered anglers at the end of the derby. The lucky winners were:
• Carter Brightman – $500
• David Brisock – $250
• John Nober – $100
• Jeff Pendorf – $ 75..
