The best way to access the derby, which will be held on Constance Bay, is at 115 Constance Bay Rd.

“Use the boat launch, turn left on the ice and travel up the river a bit,” the WCFGC released in a statement.  “Look for the green WCFGC banner on our ice shack.”

Registration will take place from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m..; fishing from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m; and prizes will be given out from 3 p.m. to 3.30 p.m.

Registration fees for adults is $20, kids 13 and under – $10.

“We have prizes for biggest walleye, pike and perch,” the WCFGC said. “The auger is an open draw on your ticket.”
