The Beaver Lake 2019 One Day Ice Fishing Derby and Ice Chef Cook-Off IS ON!  The ice conditions are finally favorable to holding the event.

The Derby and Cook-Off will be held on Saturday February 23, 2019  7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

After testing the ice at different parts of the lake today, we are seeing from 6 1/2 to 8 inches of solid ice in all areas.  Even the ice at West Beach is looking good: poor ice at the beach has been a real issue for the last few weeks.

Sorry for any scheduling issues/inconveniences that delays have caused, but running a derby with safe ice conditions is the most important priority.

We are still looking for judges to help with the Ice Chef Cook-Off.  Its a great chance to see cooking on the ice and taste some great food.  Travel between Ice Chef sites will be provided by snowmobile/ATV.  Give it a try - its fun.  Contact Russ or Mike if you are interested.

Please contact Derby Coordinators Russ Mooney (413-537-9141, or Mike Cygan (413-658-8140, if you have any questions.

Hope to see all of you fisherpersons and Ice Chefs on the 23rd!  Even if you are not planning to fish or enter Ice Chef, come on out and join the fun.  Maybe you will be able to convince an Ice Chef to give you a sample of their cuisine!
