Vavenby resident Ron Cederholm holds the 45 cm kokanee that won him first place in Clearwater Rotary Club’s annual Ice Man fishing derby on Dutch Lake on Sunday, Jan. 31. Despite good conditions, there were only 39 anglers entered, down somewhat from previous years. Close to 100 people were on the ice for the event.
