The Derby is held at the Rocky Lake East Shore Boat Launch.
Joanna McLaughlin, one of the derby committee members says it's a family fishing derby, and with the nice weather they are expecting a good turnout again this year.
There are first to third place prizes of 1 thousand dollars, 2 hundred and 1 hundred in each of the 2 categories, biggest jackfish and biggest other species. McLaughlin says any type of fish is accepted in the other species category.
Those wishing to attend can pick up tickets at Pete’s Pro Tackle and L&M Sporting Goods in The Pas. All proceeds go to support recycling in the community.
