On behalf of The Bluewater Anglers and The Village of Point Edward, welcome you to the 47th Annual Salmon Derby. The 2023 Salmon Derby will offer over $45,000 in cash and merchandise prizes for dozens of lucky anglers. The Salmon Derby offers opportunities for the whole angling community. With five fish categories to choose from, both shore and boat anglers have a multitude of fishing opportunities to win one or more of the dozens of prizes available. Kids prizes, Seniors Day and Ladies Day prizes plus bonus draw prizes help bring the entire family together to enjoy fishing lower Lake Huron and the St. Clair River.
For those who are not familiar with the Bluewater Anglers, we raise fish in a really big way. Our 5,000 square foot hatchery facility, located on the shore of the St. Clair River in The Village of Point Edward, has the capacity to raise over 150,000 chinook salmon, rainbow trout and brown trout on a yearly basis. Since opening in 1986, our hatchery volunteers have raised and released over 5 million salmonand trout into lower Lake Huron and the upper St. Clair River. All profits from the Salmon Derby go directly into the hatchery account to cover the annual operating expenses. Take pride in knowing that when you enter the Salmon Derby you are doing something to support conservation, salmon and trout stocking, and helping to ensure that you and your children can enjoy the sport of angling for years to come.
Best of luck in the 2023 Salmon Derby!
