The winners of the 2018 John Pato Ice/Winter Fishing Derby, from left: Jimmy Reynolds, first place; Jessica Estes, third place; and James Alliston, second place hold trophies high with smiles and small snowy reminders of winter all around.

Participants come back year after year to enjoy the serene beauty of Lake Davis and support the fishing derby, which donates all proceeds to the American Cancer Society. The crowd waits for the prize drawing to kick off after the trophies were awarded.
