The Colby Classic Ice Fishing Derby is held on the first weekend of March on Lake Colby. Registration, before fishing, is between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each day. The registration area is at the Lake Colby Public Beach.

Prizes are awarded for the heaviest fish in its category. There are four categories: perch, trout, salmon and northern pike. All perch, trout and salmon must be taken from Lake Colby. Since northern pike are not available in Lake Colby, pike may be fished in other local waters. There is also a door prize for all entrants.

All fish must be caught between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.. Fish caught in Lake Colby are brought immediately to the weigh-in area to be judged and weighed. NO FROZEN FISH ARE ACCEPTED.

Fish entered in the youth class must be caught by that youth. An adult may assist, but adults may not catch a fish and enter it in a youth class.
