Thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors and participants for making the 2024 Poutmasters Derby a success! We look forward to seeing everyone in 2025, May 9th to 11th


Spanning over 3 days on Mother’s Day weekend, registered participants will have a chance to fish for mudpout along the Castor River.

Thanks to the generous support of local businesses, participants can look forward to another year of incredible prizes, everything from a canoe, kayak, bicycles, fishing rods, tackle boxes, camping equipment, and games.  As always the top 3 “heaviest fish” for youths and a single heaviest catch for adults will win a plaque.  Everyone that catches a fish will win a prize!

Every angler who catches a fish (mudpout only) will have an entry for the grand prizes as well as a spa day at “Sen Spa” for Mother’s Day!

This highly anticipated community function has consistently registered approximately 350 participants every year for the last 10 years, with some 200 excited children winning a prize every year. Last tournament, we gave away over $13,000 in prizes!

Safety First!  Youth must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.  It is strongly encouraged that participants bring and wear personal floatation devices (PFDs) when fishing.

Hamburgers, hot dogs and soft drinks available for purchase on Saturday and Sunday.

This event is family friendly and run by passionate volunteers. Poor behaviour will not be tolerated.
