6C Tuesday, July 3, 2001 By Alicla Hlgbee Indian Valley Editor Two new records were set during the annual Blue Gill Derby at Round Valley Lake Saturday, June 23. Besides a record number of kids participating, a new lake record for catfish was set by Mike Chmelovsky, of Reno. He caught the 12-pound channel cat using liver the night before the derby. He came to weigh in during the derby and was surround- ed by children trying to get a closer look. First-place winner Cody Profit, of Quincy, caught the largest blue gill at 9.5 inches long, with the heaviest basket of five fish weighing in at 1.4 pounds. He stuck to the docks like glue all morning. Children from all over came to the derby, including oner from as far away as Mon- tana. Many kids were fishing in the derby for their third and fourth years, and a few were former derby kids who were helping younger siblings. There were 118 kids fishing in the derby, and they har- vested a total of 1,623 blue gill. Resort owners Bob and Deanna Carter started the derby six years ago, hoping to reduce the blue gill popula- tion and provide a fun, new activity for families to enjoy. They cosponsor the event as a fund-raiser for the Indi- an Valley Chamber of Com- merce. Resort, and a hat donated by Ed Ebersol's Rainbo Wari'ior Worms, of Taylorsville. Ebers l also donated lots of worms for the children to bait their hooks with.
