There is a new leader in the Orleans County Fishing Derby after Joseph Miller of Harrisburg, Pa., caught a nearly 30-pound Chinook salmon on Saturday.

Miller’s 29-pound, 14-ounce fish knocked a 26-pound, 14-ounce salmon from atop the leaderboard.

The biggest fish caught during the derby, which started Aug. 4 and continues until Aug. 19, is worth a $4,000 grand prize.

The fishing derby’s total prizes are $8,800, which includes the top 5 fish in four divisions: salmon, rainbow trout, brown trout and lake trout. There is also a $200 bonus prize for the biggest fish caught by an Orleans County resident.
