The China Four Seasons Club and the China Village Fire Department held the first China Lake fishing derby on March 1, over 18 years since the area’s last fishing derby.

Over 80 people filled the fire department for the final look at the day’s winning catches, which included brown trout, brook trout, togue, large and smallmouth bass, and white perch. China Village Fire Chief Theriault did the official weighing in of the entries. Most of the day’s fish were caught in China Lake. The biggest catch of the day was a largemouth bass weighing over 5 pounds.
