Nipigon’s Albert Brennen won the lake trout category with his massive 27-pound lake trout during the 53rd annual Nipigon Fall Fishing Festival, which was a success despite the rainy weather. In fact, the weather may have been part of the reason for some very large fish entries. Entered were 13 walleye, 10 rainbow trout, nine lake trout 15 pike and 21 salmon. In the kids Huck Fin derby, 70 fish were entered ranging from perch to bass to pike. It was a busy weekend with slo-pitch, booths, auctions, draws, games, food and shows that included BMX riders and acrobat performers. Other fishing winners were Petri Nurmela (salmon, 20 pounds), Stacey Remenda (rainbow trout, six pounds), Budsy Mannila (pike, 20.9 pounds), Linda Lynch (walleye, eight pounds). Kaili Phillips won the Huck Fin with her biggest perch entry and a trophy presented by Ian Brennen.
