Date:               July 2, 2016

Time:              10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Location:       Berge Lake, Berge Lake Provincial Park

This is a live release derby.  The species is the Northern Pike (a.k.a. Jackfish).  The prizes are awarded based on the length of fish measured from the tip of the pike’s mouth to the tip of the tail by a Derby Judge.  Participants may launch boats from the public boat launch on Berge Lake.

Derby Rules and Regulations:

  • ALL PARTICIPANTS IN THE FISHING DERBY ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR LIFE JACKETS WHILE ON THE WATER OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO TAKE PART IN THE FISHING DERBY.
  • Derby participants must commence fishing no sooner than 10:00 a.m. and have all pike they want measured brought to the Berge Lake boat launch dock no later than 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016. A Derby Judge will only measure pike presented to them, and the decision made by a Judge is final.
  • Only fish measured at a minimum of 20 inches in length will be eligible for prizes.
  • The same Derby entrant is allowed to enter more than one pike for judging.
  • Pike caught and brought in for measurement to a Derby Judge must be transported using a container filled with fresh lake water. Every effort must be made by the angler to ensure the fish’s survival during transportation, measurement and release.  Only pike legally caught, brought in for weighing and released alive will be counted.
  • Derby entrants are expected to be familiar with and abide by fishing regulations as articulated in the 2016 Manitoba Anglers Guide. Fishing licenses are available at the Conservation Office in Lynn Lake.  Questions may be directed to the Lynn Lake Office of Ministry of Conservation at 204-356-2413.

  • The Derby boundary is defined by the lake itself and includes the Keewatin River as far as what a boat with an outboard motor may reasonably navigate. Derby participants may not enter pike caught beyond this boundary.
