VALENS LAKE CONSERVATON AREA - February 16, 2019 6:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Valens Lake Conservation Area is gearing up for our Annual Ice Fishing Derby. It takes place on Saturday February 16, 2019. This event attracts over 150 anglers across the tri-region areas of Hamilton, Halton and Waterloo as they vie for their chance in catching the Big One!
There will be a youth and an adult competition boards and will rank the top 3 largest pan fish; species include: Yellow Perch, Blue Gill, Black Crappie and Pumpkinseed.
In the spirit of conservation, the ice fishing derby is strictly catch and release promoting a sustainable fishery for years to come. The scales open from sunrise and closes at 1pm. Participants who were unable to land a fish still have the opportunity to win door prizes.
