44th Annual Greater Niagara Fish Odyssey Derby Set for August 22-30, 2020
The Greater Niagara Fish Odyssey Derby – the derby formally known as the “Fall Classic” – will be holding its 44th Annual contest August 22-30, 2020.
In what started out as the Niagara County Fishing Derby, this competition is now open to three counties (Niagara, Erie and Orleans) in an attempt to encourage more involvement in this family-oriented event. With a big focus on the Junior Division, this move will give the kids more opportunity to wet a line because of the fact that they are out of school.
Yes, this contest has been around for over four decades!
A new category is added for the Adults, too, splitting Rainbow and Brown Trout. Grand prize is determined through a drawing of 1st Place winners. Also, a daily $100 prize for the biggest salmon caught each day – taking a page out of the LOC event – is being offered August 22-29.
The Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon Association (LOTSA) is back again with a special $500 cash prize for the largest salmon caught by a LOTSA member while competing in the derby. In addition to that, the witness (which also has to be a LOTSA member) will also receive a check for $200. When you register for the Fish Odyssey, toss in another $10 for your LOTSA membership and you will be considered registered in that fine organization. You can also register online at LOTSA There is no special walleye prize for the largest fish caught by a Southtowns Walleye Association member due to COVID-19.
For the kids 15 years and under, categories will be salmon, trout, bass, walleye, carp, sheepshead and panfish.
Entry fee will stay the same at $20 for the adults; free for the kids. A one-day pass will also be available for $10. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Kids and adults can register here beginning August 3rd.
Good Luck everyone!
