We invite young and old to have fun fishing this summer for the chance to win prizes (and of course the ever so-important bragging rights!). Catch the biggest bass (by length) in our community lakes (Dickey, LOI, Lost) to take home a prize! Also there is a prize for the smallest fish caught by a child.
How to enter: Submit a picture of your fish with a measuring tape beside it. You can submit it on Dickey Lake Central using #SRIfishing or email to SRIevent@gmail.com. Please include some details like; name, age and lake it was caught.
When: July 3rd to August 29th! Prizes to be announced Labour Day weekend!
Adult Prizes: (one per person)

Special Kids Prize for the smallest fish!
Why not start now during Family Fishing week July 3 – 11! This Family fishing week allows anyone to fish without a license. Outside of this window please ensure you follow the Ontario’s fishing regulations, have a license and practice safe boating. You can learn more here: https://www.ontario.ca/document/ontario-fishing-regulations-summary
All fish submitted must be caught by hook and line, rod and reel in a legal fashion. By participating in/entering the derby you are agreeing to follow all safety and conservation standards on and off the water and to adhere to all provincial, federal and local laws governing water activities and fishing.
