15th Annual Ice Fishing Derby

Gene & Lucille Letourneau Ice Fishing Derby

Winter is in full swing now and the ice is thick enough to get out there and find the best fishing hole to catch “the big one” and win great prizes at the 15th Annual Gene and Lucille Letourneau Ice Fishing Derby on February 24th at Spectrum Generations Muskie Center in Waterville.                         

This tradition continues to support the Meals on Wheels Program in memory of avid sportsman and environmentalist Gene Letourneau and his wife Lucille Letourneau. 

Gene was a longtime volunteer and advocate of the Meals on Wheels program.  Spectrum Generations has been delivering meals throughout central Maine for almost 40 years, and the need for these nutritious meals to homebound and disabled adults is increasing.

The weigh-in will be inside the warm and beautiful Muskie Center from 11:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. on Sunday, February 24, 2011.  The Muskie Community Center is located at 38 Gold Street in Waterville, and its new parking lot completed just last fall will provide ample parking for all contestants. 

Tickets to enter are $5.00 each, or five for $20.00.  Each ticket purchased entitles you to enter one fish in the competition, plus enters you to win the Grand Prize.  You can get your tickets by visiting the Muskie Center at 38 Gold Street in Waterville, or call 873-4745 for ticket locations. 

Any legal fish caught on February 24 in any legal water in the State of Maine can be entered.  The fish categories are Salmon, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Togue, Splake, Pickerel, Pike and White Perch.  There will be 1st and 2nd prizes for the biggest fish in each category for adults, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize categories for the biggest fish in each category for children 15 and under.

Join us for a fun day for your whole family!
