APT Ice Fishing Derby brings in one lucky winner
News, Posted on March 4, 2019
L-r Sadie McCauley presents first place ice fisherman, Neil Dreilich with a cheque worth 
$12,500 at the Asessippi Parkland Tourisms Lake of the Prairies Ice Fishing Derby held on
Saturday, February 23.

As a welcome change, Mother Nature cooperated for Asessippi Parkland Tourism’s Lake of the
Prairies Ice Fishing Derby, warming up to an almost seasonal -10 degrees celsius on the last
Saturday in February.
After last year’s absence, organizers were hoping to fill up the spots on the ice beside the
boat launch on the lake but with a head count of 376 fishermen, the tally was down 75 from
the last time the derby was held in 2017.
