Wyoming Hunters & Fishermen announce ice derby winners

(Shoshoni, WY) Wyoming Hunters & Fishermen, along with co-hosts and sponsors B&K Shoreline Stop and the Boysen Marina, announced the winners of this weekend’s ice fishing derby held at Boysen Reservoir on Sunday.

A Boysen tradition for many years, WH&F’s Jay Fountain said this was his “fourth year fishing it and my third year sponsoring it,” he said. “The last two years, I did the kids-only with door prizes. This year there were prizes and plaques for the biggest fish for everybody, down to even the smallest fish for the kids.”

Fountain added his appreciation to the Davisons of B&K Shoreline Spot for putting on the derby. “Bruce and Karen are very much appreciated,” he said. “This is my favorite (derby) to sponsor and participate in. It’s so fun, and there are a lot of downhome, good folks.”
