A note of thanks to Josh Hayden and family for continuing the 40+ year tradition of the Ferguson Fishing Derby. The derby was started in 1982 by the LaPierre family and continued to be a learning experience for young fishers for decades.

 

The original derby was dedicated to Charlie Ferguson and run by his children, Gale, Kathy, and Charlene. Thank you to the Haydens for honoring this long-standing summer event.

The website has been covering this event since 2005. Use the search tool at the top of the page and search: "Fishing Derby"

National Weather Service Cold Water Safety Message

The warm air temperatures this weekend, in the low to mid 70s, may cause people to underestimate the dangers of the cold water temperatures, which are currently only in the mid to upper 50s across Lake Champlain and in the region's smaller lakes and rivers.

When the water temperature is below 60 degrees, the average submerged person could lose dexterity within minutes and be unable to accomplish simple tasks. Anyone on small boats, canoes, or kayaks should plan accordingly if recreating this weekend and use extreme caution to avoid this threat. Paddle smart from the start, and always wear your life jacket! Use extreme caution for pets, children, and anyone in the water.
