Rock Bass Fishing Derby

The Rock Bass Fishing Derby is held during the period which the Province of Ontario  designates license free each year, allowing everyone to participate with or without a fishing license. Every year the KLCOA organizes a friendly competition to see who can catch the most Rock Bass. Rock Bass are an invasive species in the Kennisis Lakes, damaging our Trout population.

Come out and join us for a family fun day of fishing while helping to reduce the number of Rock Bass in our lakes.  Final weigh in of total pounds of rock bass caught happens at the bridge between Big and Little Kennisis Lake.  Prizes are awarded after a weigh in and the whole catch is disposed of.

Thank you to Mike and Kelley Neely for organizing this event each year.
