In efforts to raise funds for its walleye stocking program and to promote St. Lawrence River walleye fishing, the St. Lawrence Valley Sportsmen’s Club is hosting its sixth annual SLVSC Walleye Derby on opening day on Saturday, May 5. The event is an open-boundary one, and fishing hours extend from midnight until 4 p.m. Winning fish will be determined by weight.

Interested anglers can register ($15) in Ogdensburg at Bill’s Tire Center, Vinn’s Tavern, and Fish’er Chips and in Lisbon at Sandy’s Bait and Tackle.

Eligibility requires that all anglers in the boat be registered for the derby, and the minimum length for eligible walleyes is 21 inches.

Weigh-ins will be held at the waterfront park adjacent to the Ogdensburg Community Center from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. The waterfront weigh-in site allows anglers who wish to do so to release their catch.

Based on 100 entries, the prizes will be $500 for first place, $300 for second, $200 for third, and $100 for fourth. In addition, numerous door prizes will be awarded. For more information, call Kevin Bateman at 393-0206 or Jerry Lincoln at 393-7506.

Like the SLRWA, the SLVSC will host an opening-day bass derby on June 16.
