Merritt -10th annual Ice Fishing Derby

© By Othmar Vohringer

How time goes by. I could have sworn we just finished last years ice fishing derby and here I am, organizing this years event.

This year the Nicola Valley Fish & Game Club celebrates the 10th ice fishing derby anniversary.

What started ten years ago as a small local event has over the years grown to become one of the region’s most popular, and BC’s biggest, winter fishing event. The ice fishing derby is a highly anticipated family event, which annually attracts over 200 adults and children from all over the region from as far away as Vancouver.

This year the ice fishing derby will be held on Sunday, January 17, 2010 at Mamette Lake. The derby starts officially at 8:00 am and closes at 2:00 pm.
Derby Entry Fees: $15 per person or $30 per family.

Tickets are available at:
Powderkeg Outdoor Sports Store in Merritt.
Ponderosa Hunting and Fishing Tackle Store in Merritt, or at the event.

There are many prizes to be given away.
We have generous cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for trout in the adult and youth class. Heaviest weight overall for coarse fish plus many door prizes, raffle and draws.
Hot dogs plus free hot chocolate and coffee will available in our cozy warm hospitality tent. I look forward to welcoming everybody, so come on out and help us celebrate our 10th annual Ice Fishing Derby!
