Two days of fun and fishing in celebration of Father’s Day, because what better way to spend Father’s Day than out on beautiful Lac La Hache with Dad?
You might catch a prize-winning fish, but even if you don’t, you will have the memory, and likely a “One That Got Away” story to share. There are cash prizes for the largest fish, 2nd largest fish, largest rainbow trout and largest white fish, as well as draws, and a silent auction.
Derby is on from 8:00 AM on Saturday, June 20th, to 12:00PM on Sunday.
