On May 16th, 17th, and 18th, 2014 the Winni Derby will be
hosting NH's leading annual Landlocked Salmon and Lake Trout derby with over $50,000 in Daily and Major Prizes! As always, the fishing is on Lake Winnipesaukee in central New Hampshire.
As a non-profit organization, the Winni Derby looks to maintain our support the local community, and as always, is committed to the preservation of the salmon fishery on the “big” lake.
With the 31st Annual Derby concluded – we enjoyed a great turnout, ideal fishing weather, and saw some quality fish entered at the weigh station. We appreciate your patronage as Laconia Rotary works to continually expand this exciting affair. This derby will continue to be promoted as a family event, offering adult and junior prize divisions in now both Salmon and Lake trout categories. Grand prizes have now been converted to ALL CASH. We also continue to give away “grab bags”, daily cash/product prizes and ticket holder cash prizes.
As in the past, we continue to work in partnership with the NH Fish and Game Department, as they are directly responsible for the fishery we use. We are working to extend our support with a pledge to assist Fish and Game with the upgrade of better feed for the hatchery. This past year we were able to donate $2,000 towards the special Bio-Oregon fish food for the salmon. This will allow for a better quality of fish to be stocked in the lake each year. And we continue to help raise awareness about the Landlocked Salmon Angler’s Pledge initiative.
