    French Creek Salmon Derby Aug 22-24, 2014...
    Hey everyone, just a little reminder that we'll be having another local salmon derby this weekend. Derby headquarters will be at the French Creek Marine Pub. Tickets are $10.00/Rod, tickets available at French Creek Harbour Store-(250) 248-8912, or French Creek Marine Pub-(250) 248-3713 (ext 21). There will be a daily largest salmon prize, daily hidden weight prizes, an overall largest salmon prize, as well as a great prize table that all entrants are eligible for. All proceeds go to the Marion Baker Salmon Hatchery (Coho enhancement) on French Creek. The fishing should be fairly good, with some Chinook salmon moving in on the Big and Little Qualicum Rivers. I will up-date this thread with the catch reports, and leaders. Hope you can make it!

    I'll be at the pub weighing in everyone's catch from 4-9 on Friday. I hear over 200 tickets have been sold. if you haven't got yours yet, go to the pub, or the store. I'll be on the water the rest of the weekend trying my own luck. Hope to see you in the winners circle on Sunday!

    The French Creek Salmon Derby is typically held the weekend before the Labour Day long weekend. It would be great to see some new faces/boats attend this event in the future. Lots of fun for all ages, hope to see you next year!

    Sounds like a fun event I really like that you allow fish to be weighed in until 9pm. All of the derbies I attend cut off weigh ins at 6. You'd think first light until 6pm is enough time... but no, it isn't!

    Hey this derby has more draw prizes that catch prizes. I think it is a great derby and would not change anything about it.
