Magic Reservoir south of Bellevue was the site of the seventh annual John McClatchy Memorial “Big Fish” fishing derby Saturday. There were 89 anglers, and the fishing was a challenge.

But the spirits were high and the cause was a good one. Donations of $7,500 were raised for Camp Rainbow Gold, bringing the derby’s seven-year fundraising total for CRG to over $30,000.

Winning the $1,000 first-place “heaviest fish” prize was Karel Kaiser, at 3 pounds and 2.8 ounces. Cash prizes were paid to seven anglers in the Adult Division, and five young fishermen in the Junior class.
