First Annual Wood N’ Reels Fishing Derby April 26 – 28
Wood Lake RV Park and Marina is proud to announce that we will be collaborating with local fisheries’ biologist to help collect bio sampling and angler surveys during the Wood N’ Reels Fishing Derby. Biologists will be on site at the time of fish weigh in to conduct “creel” surveys on each fish that is brought in. This data collection and bio sampling is information that our local fisheries biologist use to help determine the overall health and well-being of the Wood Lake Kokanee stock. Anglers now get to participate in a fun family-oriented fishing derby while helping fisheries biologist towards conservation efforts.
We invite you for the whole weekend of April 26 – 28, 2019, and hope you enjoy fishing on one of the most desired lakes for Kokanee in BC, which is Wood Lake.
Registration for the Derby can be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or contacting our office at 250-766-1881 during our business hours of 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM daily.
The Registration fee is $100 for the whole weekend at Wood Lake RV Park and Marina if you decide to camp with us, which includes a full-service site, firewood, complimentary breakfast and barbecue dinner, and usage of a boat slip at our marina. (This includes one registration fee. Any additional registrations are $45.00 per person.) Children under 10 are free.
The Fishing Derby will commence early on April 27th, at 7:00 AM so it is mandatory for registration to be done before the 27th of April to ensure you will have a spot in the derby, a slip available for your usage, and to ensure you are out on the water at an adequate time. Participants can launch anywhere on Wood Lake, but all guests must return to Wood Lake RV Park and Marina by 3:00 PM for weigh in.
We will have AMAZING prizes for the heaviest fish caught (1st, 2nd, and 3rd.) There will also be a Junior category (Children under 16) who will have the chance at winning 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes as well.
