December 2016 Update

The 2017 Salmon Derby Committee has been working since early October to plan and prepare for the 2017 Salmon Derby.

The Salmon Derby total prize value will be $40,000 with no major changes to the derby format, prize structure or weigh-in stations. The initial response from previous and potential new Salmon Derby sponsors and tabloid advertisers has been very positive through mid December. We are hopeful that most of our previous derby sponsors and advertisers will return for the 2017 Salmon Derby. If you know of any company that might be interested in becoming a Salmon Derby sponsor, please contact Gerry Fawdry (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 519-542-2764). We will be happy to follow up on any leads.

The Village of Point Edward and KOOLATRON have returned as corporate sponsors of the Salmon Derby. The Village of Point Edward is donating the $5,000 first prize to be awarded to the lucky angler who catches the largest salmon during the derby. KOOLATRON is donating the 20 Daily Draw Prizes awarded during the derby in addition to 10 additional derby prizes. The two Tuna Charters are back again in 2017. One Tuna Charter will be awarded to the person who enters the largest Lake Trout during the derby. The second Tuna Charter winner will be drawn from all Salmon Derby participants who enter a fish during the derby. There will also be the Bonus Draw Prize (sponsored by The Outdoorsman) and the Bluewater Anglers Members Only Draw Prize (sponsored by Canadian Tire Sarnia).
