Big catch ready to be reeled in at annual Ice Fishing Derby

This year, the forecast for Sunday is expected to reach a high of four degrees.

Inga Lake is located at Mile 91 on the Alaska Highway, two miles left off the highway. Signage will be posted along the highway for drivers.


Anyone interested in competing is allowed to enter, and the derby is free of charge to compete in. Prizes will be available to win in both the Children and Adult Categories, and there are no age restrictions for those looking to cast off into competition.

However, organizers say that competitors 16 years old and older must have a valid fishing license in order to partake in the action.

Fishing licenses can be purchased at Backcountry, located at 10120 Alaska Highway North.
