Father’s Day is around the corner, so if you enjoy fishing and the possibility of winning some great prizes, pack up your family and fishing gear and make your way to Lac la Hache for the 14th Annual Father’s Day Fishing Derby, June 14-15.
The derby is hosted by Kokanee Bay Resort, just 10 minutes north of the downtown Lac la Hache.

There are also many hidden weight, hidden time and door prizes available. There will also be silent auction items, and on June 15, there will be freebees handed out to the children.
Hotdogs and hamburgers will be available on June 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., with award prizes to be handed out beginning at 1 p.m.
The non-profit Lac la Hache Father’s Day Fishing Derby Society donates funds raised to the Lac la Hache and area communities.
