It has become a tradition and a big attraction to the Town of Indian Lake. On Saturday, Jan. 18, the Indian Lake/Blue Mountain Fish and Game Association, Inc. sponsored the ninth annual Ice Fishing Derby. One couldn’t ask for better conditions. The ice was 14 inches thick with a small amount of snow cover and no slush. The temperature was 8 drgrees at 5 a.m., but by early afternoon it had risen into the low 30’s and it was sunny with calm winds until late in the day.
