6th Annual Family Fishing Derby!
June 4th to 6th 2021
All current COVID-19 rules and considerations will be in place and must be abided by at all times during the derby. We have full systems in place for fish measurement and awarding prizes to avoid gatherings.
Now all that fun stuff is out of the way… We are again hosting our annual freshwater fishing derby at Nanaimo Lakes Old Mill campground. As with past years we are opening 2nd lake to fishing for the derby for those wishing to fish it. We will be including our wacky costume contest, new this year we are going to include a “best themed campsite” we will reveal the theme closer to derby time. You will have a 25$ spending limit for what you feel will be the winning campsite, you are however welcome to raid your storage lockers and such to help decorate. We also again are including the Adult’s derby where you are only allowed to use a 3’6″ or under sized fishing rod and tackle given to you at time of derby. Fishing rod used for Adult’s derby must be donated back to us so we can give them out to local families, we will have some available for purchase on site but limited numbers so please bring your own rod if possible.  Tickets are 20$ for adults and 10$ for youth (under 16) you are welcome to purchase up to 4 tickets per person.
