Rock Bass Fishing Derby

Rock Bass Fishing Derby

Saturday July 6, 2024

10am to 4pm

This event is held during the period which the Province of Ontario has designated “fishing license free” for 2024, 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 fun day of fishing while helping to reduce the number of Rock Bass in our lakes.  

You can register in pairs or individually in one of two categories, 12 years and under or 13 years and over. Final weigh in of total pounds of rock bass caught will take place at 4:00 pm at the bridge between Big and Little Kennisis Lake. Prizes will be awarded after a weigh in and the whole catch will be disposed of.

Please ensure that only rock bass are included in your catch, other types of fish will not be weighed. Please practice catch and release for other species.
