Shannon lake fishing derby Saturday

As if you needed an excuse to visit beautiful Shannon Lake in the heart of West Kelowna, a day-long family fishing derby is even one more reason to come out.

Besides, nobody even needs a fishing license to take part in this fun fest.

The derby will take place this Saturday, June 15, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Shannon Lake.

The event is part of  the 14th Annual BC family fishing weekend which takes place across the province June 14 through 16..

Derby entrants will also be treated to free fishing tackle, bait and a BBQ,  as well as prizes for fish caught. Among the latter will be a prize for the longest fish caught by a youth 15 or younger. The prize for this event is a day's fishing for Salmon on the Fraser River this summer with Pirate Island Charters.

Fish caught anywhere on Shannon Lake are also eligible for prizes

Remember the entire weekend is license free for all Canadians on both salt and fresh water (certain rules and regulations do apply though - check with your local tackle shop or derbyevent organizers if you have any questions or concerns.

The Shannon Lake derby is sponsored by Peachland Sportsmens Association
