Annual Fishing Competition, 2024

By Dennis Roberts, Fishing & Big Game Rep

The VFGPA has, in the past, conducted an annual fishing competition among its members for fish caught in various species categories. Trophies are awarded for the largest Coho salmon, Chinook salmon, halibut and trout. In addition, the junior angler with the best quality catch of any species is recognized as the ‘junior fisherman of the year’. The competition ran from January 01 to December 31 each year and trophies are awarded at the Annual General Meeting in March of the following year. However, it was cancelled in 2018 and did not see a return.

We are looking to see if there would be any interest from the club members to bring back the annual competition, and as well if there would be any interest in the club putting on a weekend fishing derby, this could be for salmon, trout, halibut, bass?

If you are interested in return of the competition and/or a fishing derby weekend events please let me know and email me at:
