Members Fishing Derby

Esquimalt Anglers’ Association Annual Members Fishing Derby


Sunday, August 27th, 2017 we held our last Annual One Day Members Salmon fishing Derby and it was a great turnout with almost 90 Members boats entered and lots of prizes for everyone even if you didn’t catch a fish!

Last Year we decided to cancel our Annual Fishing Derby as a Conservation effort to reduce the pressure on our Salmon runs.

This year we were expecting an even better turnout for both our Members and Juniors and they did show up in bigger numbers but the Salmon didn’t!

Our 2018 Members derby is booked for Sunday August 26th so don’t miss out!
