Duck wranglers guide the fowl down Bear Creek on Saturday below the Evergreen Lake dam.

Rubber duckies quacked across the finish line in record time, buoyed by the fast-flowing waters of Bear Creek, in the fifth annual Dam Ducky Derby on Saturday.

The creek was flowing at 60 cubic feet per second, compared with its more sedate 20 cfs in previous Augusts, said John Ellis, an organizer and director of community relations at Evergreen National Bank. The first ducks crossed the finish line in less than half an hour.
