• 28th Annual Grand River Bass Derby

    Dear Friends

    The 28th Annual Grand River Bass Derby is set for July 9 & 10 this year and Natural Sports & the Optimist Club of Stanley Park look forward to hosting over 500 participants!

    This catch and release derby coincides with Ontario Family Fishing Week and Canada's National Fishing Week and is one of the largest and longest running fishing events in Ontario.

    The Derby will again be held on the Grand River throughout Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge.

    All proceeds from the Derby will be used to enhance and improve fish habitat and public access to the Grand River.

    Together with our sponsors we hope to make this years Derby even better.

    If you and your company are able to donate a prize or sponsor this event in any way it would help to make this years derby another success!

    Please contact me if you have any questions.

    Thank you
