Welcome to the First Annual Fishing Derby at Wood Lake RV Park and Marina, Wood N’ Reels!

Wood Lake RV Park & Marina is proud to announce that we will be collaborating with local fisheries biologist to help collect bio sampling and angler surveys during the Wood N’Reels Fishing Derby. Biologists will be on site at the time of fish weigh in to conduct “creel” surveys on each fish that is brought in. This data collection and bio-sampling is information that our local fisheries biologist use to help determine the overall health and well-being of the Wood Lake Kokanee stock. Anglers now get to participate in a fun family orientated fishing derby while helping fisheries biologist towards conversation efforts.

We invite you for the whole weekend of April 26-28, 2019, and hope you enjoy fishing on one of the most desired lakes for Kokanee in BC, which is Wood Lake.

Registration is now open!

The Fishing Derby will commence early on April 27, at sunrise, so it is mandatory for registration to be done before April 27 to ensure that you will have a spot in the derby, a slip available for your usage, and so you can get out on Wood Lake at an adequate time. There will be a complimentary breakfast on provided by Wooden Nickel Cafe before the Fishing Derby.
