Ucluelet Salmon Fishing Derby

Update 2011

There will be no derby for 2011. We will see you in 2012!

Here is what happened in 2011:

August 14,15,16, 2010

1st Place

$10,000 in CASH

2nd Place

6 hp Suzuki motor from Breaker’s Marine www.breakersmarine.ca

The Standard Horizon FLOATING handheld VHF HX760E with Bluetooth handset is perhaps the most rugged VHF Marine Radio on the martek. It floats and has a built in thermometer!

3rd Place

4 hr fishing trip from Salmon Eye Charters


Leaving and returning to Ucluelet Harbor


Proceeds will go to Ucluelet Salmon Enhancement Society

This salmon derby will be one of the best chances to win it big with few contestants. We are expecting between 300-500 entries, so chances to win a derby with so few entries and such a large prize may never be seen again! Tickets are $20 per day per person or $50 for all three days. Tickets will be sold at the Columbia Fuels Fuel Dock one week prior to the derby as well as during the derby. We are also planning to sell tickets at the Boat Basin dock every morning of the derby from 5-7 am. In order to qualify, every person on the boat must have a derby ticket, no exceptions.
