The Kayak Fishing Derby has been taking place annually since 2004 at Moutcha Bay Resort in Nootka Sound on Vancouver Island. This family-friendly event is designed to raise funds for salmon enhancement and habitat restoration within the Nootka Sound watershed.

An orientation will take place on the evening of August 30th where participants are encouraged to meet at the main lodge at Moutcha Bay Resort.

Moutcha Bay Resort offers fishing and conventional kayak rentals. Ask us for more information about renting your watercraft.

Participants are encouraged to pre-register with Guest Services in advance of arrival. Participants must be present for the prize presentation in order to qualify.

PRIZES & SPONSORS

OUR PURPOSE
Our Kayak Derby is designed to raise funds for salmon enhancement and habitat restoration within the Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet watersheds. Our goal is that by actively promoting and participating in these essential projects, we will bring awareness of the importance of environmental programs to the angling community. All of the net proceeds from this derby go toward the Nootka Sound Watershed Society and the Pacific Salmon Foundation.

One of the many benefits of these family-friendly events is that we continue to see more young people developing a love for sport fishing and an appreciation for their environment.

NOOTKA SOUND WATERSHED SOCIETY
The Nootka Sound Watershed Society is a group of local community members including First Nations representatives, biologists, sport fishermen, industry representatives, and stewards with the common goal of working to protect, restore, and enhance Pacific salmon stocks in the Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet watersheds.
