— Nearly 50 fishermen, from youth through adult, turned out Sunday morning for the annual Cherry Festival Fishing Derby in Hisey Park.

Put on by the Granger Lions Club, those with the largest and most fish were awarded prizes.

As of press time, the winners were not available.

But 10-year-old Darius Pina of Prosser weighed in a 1.3-pound rainbow he landed on a mixture of rainbow and yellow PowerBait, he said.

The “moster” measured 13.75 inches, Lions Club member and weigh-in official Daniel Fonseca said.

Pina combined with his father to land nine fish.

Lupe Fonseca assisted with registering fishermen and weighing in their catch.
