Big Changes for the 2017 Derby

The King George Fishing Derby committee has made two major changes to 2017 Derby. First off, we have decided to hold the event after the summer season and moved ahead to September 15-17 for this year. Hopefully fishing will be more enjoyable with less boat traffic than we had last year. Secondly, we have added a Landlocked Salmon Category for the Adult Division. In order to make this feasible, we had to alter the prize structure slightly. The top four entries in each of the 4 Categories will be awarded the following: 1st-$2,000, 2nd-$1,000, 3rd-$500, 4th: $250. The Youth Division remains the same with 3 categories and 1st through 5th place awards. Registration fees will be $50 for adults and $30 for youth; early registration by 9/1 receive a FREE event T-shirt. One more thing, the north end weigh station will be at the Hague Town Docks this year.
