BVFF has traditionally held the White Fish Derby, an annual event for many years.  Last year (2021) a virtual derby replaced the in-person group event.

This year we will be holding both. The virtual derby is until the 17th. This is a standalone derby, that ends on 2/17/2023. 

The in-person outing is defined at:


1.    All participants must be current BVFF members for 2023.

2.    Each participant must register for the event. Registration is by using the registration link for this event on the website.

3.    Derby participants will post directly to the BVFF Facebook Page. In your submittal add the following data:

o   A picture of the whitefish held next to a tape measure. Make sure the tape is readable. See document HERE on measuring your fish.

o   Date and Time of catch.

o   Fly used (optional)

Note:  Members without Facebook access can mail their entries to
