We can't wait for the pandemic to be behind us to finally see everyone again next year, safe and healthy, for the 35th Annual OFAH Under the Lock Fishing Derby in 2022.

Cancelled due to COVID-19

9 days, 3,000 stocked Trout, 400 tagged fish & over $15,000 in prizes

Spanning 9 days, registered anglers will have the chance to hook into 3,000 stocked Trout below the Peterborough Lift Lock. There are 400 tagged fish for prizes for youth, 4 grand prizes, 20 early bird draws, and sponsored tagged fish for cash prizes for anglers of all ages — over $15,000 in prizes!!

Thanks to the generous support of local businesses, participants can look forward to another year of incredible prizes – everything from fishing rods, tackle boxes, to camping equipment, mountain bikes and cash prizes. As always, the “Big Fish” grand prize package will also be awarded to anyone who catches the elusive, Walter. This year’s grand prize is a spot at OFAH Get Outdoors Summer Camp in Minden PLUS $500 cash.
