First Canada Day Kids Fishing Derby!

Mark your calendars! The event will start on Saturday, July 3, 2021 at 8am and close at 12:30 pm on the same day. This event coincides with Canada Day Weekend. Due to this unprecedented time of Covid-19, to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our members, our first Kid’s Fishing Derby will be Virtual/On-line! That means participants will submit photos and stories to the FLCA which will then be posted to the web site for all to see and join in the fun!

Please remember to follow any government restrictions in place for COVID19 at the time of the Derby.


No cost to register – this is strictly for fun!  We just need your information.  Please click here to complete the short registration form on SurveyMonkey.  Any questions please contact us at

Once we have a list of participants, our Derby Coordinator, Scott Dales, will deliver gift bags with some items from the Ministry as well as a tape measure to be used in the picture to verify that this was caught in out lake with the tape measure provided (see below).  Please make sure you include your lake address on the registration form so Scott can deliver the bag to you before July 3.

Submission Instructions

Photos must be in jpeg file format and sent to the FLCA via at no later than Tuesday July 6 (deadline is extended to make allowance for the poor internet service at the lake) – include your name, photos and the name of the fisherperson(s) in the photo.   The photos should include the fish with the tape measure to verify the measurements and a photo of the participant with their fishing hat in order to qualify for the best fishing hat. Measurement for widest fish must be from the belly to  the back.

Make sure you include your fishing story in your email to win the “best fishing story prize”!

Derby is Catch and Release!

To help protect the fish and ensure it survives once you release it back into the lake, have what you need to take the photo ready and take the picture as quickly as possible. Keep the fist in the water until you’re ready as the fish needs oxygen to survive.
Review these Catch and Release Guidelines to ensure the fish lives once you let it go back into the water.

1) Longest Fish
2) Widest Fish (measure belly to back)
