    Belwood and District Lions Club annually provides an opportunity for anglers from all walks of life to enjoy a few days on beautiful Belwood Lake and take the challenge of catching the longest pike and walleye. Planning for 2023 is in full swing and yes, we will be offering both our pike and walleye competitions again this year. First prize is $2000.00 for the longest pike caught, and $1000.00 for the longest walleye, as well as runner up prizes and multitude of Youth prizes. Also, every child entrant 8 yrs and under is guaranteed a prize. Add to that our raffle prizes and door prizes, and NEW FOR 2023 – ‘grab bags’ – every fish brought into the dock to be measured that meets the minimum competition length will win a ‘grab bag’ with a surprise gift . Applies to both Adult and Youth anglers. It all adds up to a host of ways not to leave empty handed.

    “Fish on!!”  That’s what you want most to hear when you’re in the Belwood Lions Pike Derby, because the prizes and bragging rights are worth reeling it in. The longest pike takes the win, but it’s the longest fishing tales of the one that got away that keep this family tradition alive and swimming.

    Every spring since 1980, on the weekend after the Victoria Day holiday, Belwood Lake is a busy spot with boat loads of anglers looking to cast out for the big win. First prize is $2000.00, but there is even more prizes in both adult and youth categories, including early bird draws, door prizes and draws. Be sure to bring the kids, because every angler under the age of 8 years old is guaranteed a prize.

    Reel it in and take part in this annual competition, the biggest annual fundraiser for the Belwood Lions Club – supporting local initiatives for youth and community in the Township of Centre Wellington.

    Whether you catch a pike or just make memories with your pals, this is great event with a proud history.  So, fish on!
