Dedicated “O-Fish-al” Dick Cadarette valued volunteer

Dick Cadarette, 28 year volunteer at the Michigan Brown Trout Festival, helps out weighing the fish and checking the leaderboard. (July 18, 2018)


Alpena — Valued Michigan Brown Trout Festival volunteer, Dick Cadarette, has helped out the tournament since 1991. 28 years of service and he loves the people and fishing. Jan Stepanski catching “Big Brownie” in 2017 helped make the hard work worth it.

Cadarette is one of the current longest working volunteers at the tournament and is very important in helping keep it running smoothly. He has worked on the leaderboard, weighing fish, scale accuracy and registration. A true volunteer for an Alpena tradition.
