This event is a South Vancouver Island salmon fishing derby to be held on Saturday of this coming Father’s Day Weekend


Saturday 17th June 2017 from day break to 5:00 p.m.


The Kiss My … Chinook Derby is a fun, one-day angler-friendly salmon fishing fundraiser. This is a great opportunity to get out on the water with family, friends or fishing buddies on one of our areas important fishing weekends. The event is designed to help SVIAC generate funds needed to support increasing adult Chinook salmon abundance in the Juan de Fuca Strait through the SVIAC Sea Pen Initiative.


Using a no frills format the derby will reward its contestants with a chance at two main cash prizes. One prize for the largest legal salmon weighed in at the sole official weighstation during the derby and one prize will be drawn from all those entered in the derby.

Derby Headquarters and Weigh Station

The Kiss My … Chinook Derby will be headquartered at Pedder Bay RV Resort and Marina, 925 Pedder Bay Road (off Rocky Point Road in Metchosin). The derby has one official weigh station, which is at the same location.
