There were more stories than fish coming out of the ice at the start of the Derby Line Fire Department’s Annual Ice Fishing Tournament on Seymour Lake Saturday.
Three feet of snow and 20 inches of ice made a formidable barrier between the fishermen and the landlocked salmon, lake trout and brown trout they were after.
From the center of Seymour Lake, there’s an awesome view. Looking south, Elan Hill forms the backdrop, and beyond is Bald Mountain’s pyramid peak. To the north is Wildwood Valley, where stories and remnants of a skier’s rope tow and the four-cylinder engine that ran it still linger.
