Proudly Presents


The 34th Annual Winni Derby



May 13th - 15th, 2016

On May 13th, 14th, and 15th, 2016 the Winni Derby will be
hosting NH's leading annual Landlocked Salmon and Lake Trout derby with over $50,000 in Daily and Major Prizes! 

As always, the fishing is on Lake Winnipesaukee in central New Hampshire.

 As a non-profit organization, the Winni Derby looks to maintain our support the local community, and as always, is committed to the preservation of the salmon fishery on the “big” lake.

A huge thank you to everyone for your help in supporting the 33rd Annual Derby. With a reasonable turnout of approximately 1,200 participants, we were happy to see the quality of fish being weighed in a nice improvement over previous years.


Our derby is a family event, offering an Adult Salmon Division, a Junior Salmon Division and a Mixed Lake Trout (Adult and Junior combined) Division. Grand prizes are ALL CASH. We also feature daily prizes, gift bags and ticket holder prizes.


As in the past, we continue to work in partnership with the NH Fish and Game Department, as they are directly responsible for the fishery we use. We are continuing  to extend our support with a pledge to assist Fish and Game with the upgrade of better feed for the hatchery. This past year we were again able to donate another $2,000 towards the special Bio-Oregon fish food for the salmon. This will continue to allow for a better quality of fish to be stocked in the lake each year. And we continue to help raise awareness about the Landlocked Salmon Angler’s Pledge initiative.
