The Lake Frances Ice Fishing Derby is coming up on January 18th.  This derby is a great family friendly event and 100% of registration fees go back as prizes.  Last year paid out over $6000 in cash prizes to top three pike and perch. There is also a great raffle being held with many large prizes including a Vexilar fish finder, a Ruger Precision .17 HMR bolt action Rimfire Rifle, an electric ice auger and MANY more prizes.  All proceeds go to support Valier projects including Campground fix-ups and Lake area improvements.

Register in advance for the derby or buy raffle tickets at Curry's, Froggies, Panther, or Devoes in Valier or on Derby Day at One Stop and Lake Frances Pavilion.

Plan to fish at the Lake Frances Ice Fishing Derby on January 18th.  Have fun and have a chance and brining in the big one for a big payout!  Sponsored by Valier Area Development
