Fishing Southern Vancouver Island
The 2020 Sidney Anglers Salmon Enhancement Derby has been postponed for the coming year.
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans has given us no reasonable expectation that we will have access to our fishery in 2020 due to a review of all regulations.
As a result, we are unable to organize our derby to be consistent with the quality that our sponsors and participants have come to expect from the Sidney Anglers Association for this event.
We are working to create new fundraising events to be able to continue to fund and participate in our local salmon enhancement activities and to contribute to data collection and scientific programs.
We want to thank everyone for their interest and participation in this event in the past years.
Please refer back to this website and our Facebook site for further updates.
