CHAMPION ANGLER: Fun is the focus of the annual Save-On-Foods French Creek Fishing Derby — perhaps John Bates had the most fun this year. About an hour before the noon cut-off time Sunday, Bates brought in the biggest salmon of the weekend, 31 pounds, 11 ounces. Hundreds of people entered the event again this year, which cost entrants only $10 a rod, with proceeds going to the Marion Creek Fish Hatchery. Pictured above just before the awards ceremony are, from left, Save-On-Foods general manager Bruce Brown, champion angler Bates and French Creek Marine Pub general manager Russ Mosher.
