CONCORD — Given recent declining trends in the number of landlocked salmon available in Lake Winnipesaukee, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and the Boy Scouts of America have agreed to cancel next year’s “Winni Derby.”

Currently sponsored by the BSA, the “Winni Derby,” an entry-fee based tournament typically held each May, targets landlocked salmon as the primary species with regard to prize structure.
