The VOICE of Anglers and Hunters since 1928

33rd Annual OFAH Under the Lock Fishing Derby

Online registration now open

PETERBOROUGH — Online registration is now open for the 33rd Annual OFAH Under the Lock Fishing Derby (formerly Peterborough Greenwing Fishing Derby) at ofah.org/underthelock.  Several new features will make this year’s derby a resounding success with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) as lead partner.

“We have listened to angler feedback from last year, and added two extra days of fishing, early bird registration prizes, and sponsored tagged fish with cash prizes for anglers of all ages to win,” said David Ryrie, OFAH Youth Education Manager.

The youth derby on April 25, for children 15 years and under, will include lunch, 400 tagged Trout for instant prizes, and a chance to win one of four grand prizes. The big fish prize – OFAH summer camp + $500 cash – will go to whomever manages to catch Walter, a rainbow trout between 8 and 10 pounds.

The all ages derby runs April 26 to May 3 and for the first time will include tagged fish with cash prizes sponsored by local businesses.  “We still have fish in need of a local sponsor that will both challenge anglers and offset the cost of the stocked Trout for the youth derby” adds Ryrie.  Interested sponsors may find details on the derby website.

Registration is required for all participants – just $15 for the first child, $10 for siblings, and $25 for adults.
