Shuswap Lake Fishing Derby

1st Place in the 2020 Jim Rice Classic on Shuswap Lake!

Every year Shuswap lake hosts 2 tournament events, one in the spring, the 1st Sunday of May and another in the fall, the 1st Sunday in November. The event is held at the public boat launch in Sicamous. This is a ‘Catch & Release’ derby where the longest fish wins. Although the event is one day we book two days fishing using the first day as a pre-fish day. In the 2016 spring tournament we placed 1st in both categories…Rainbow Trout & Lake Trout! Spring 2014 we placed 1st and 4th in the Lake Trout category and in the fall placed 3rd in the Rainbow category. 2013 we placed 8th in the Rainbow category and in 2012 we placed 2nd for Rainbow. There is also a youth category for this fishing event. Fun for all ages!

Kelowna Fishing Derby on Okanagan Lake

WooHoo! Our Guide Len and Guests took 1st Place in the 2019 Kelowna Winter Fishing Derby! Way to go Boys! My guests took 2nd place in the 2018 Kelowna Winter Fishing Derby. The Kelowna Fishing Derby was created in 2013 and has been a huge success. As per the Shuswap Fishing Derby this is a ‘Catch & Release’ event where the longest fish wins. Once an angler lands a fish he takes a photo of it on an official derby ruler and submits it with his phone by either email or text to a derby official. Every year the spring derby is held on the Saturday of the Father’s Day weekend, what a great way to spend the day with your son! Prizes for this event are $4000.00 for 1st, $1000.00 for 2nd, and $500.00 for 3rd. As well, there are many $100.00 prize give aways during the event. The fall derby follows the same guide lines and is held in mid October. Contact us today for more info!
