Izaak Walton Three Rivers Fishing Derby

The Three Rivers Chapter of Waverly, Iowa Izaak Walton League is proud to sponsor an Annual event “Family Fishing Day Derby” We all know how important it is to teach fishing & conservation to the next generation of anglers. However, we would be unable to provide such a wonderful event for so many area children and adults without the support of others. For the past several years we have asked over 100 companies for donations of every shape and size, we utilize all donations both small and large for that year’s specific derby. With continued support we will be able to offer this derby to children and adults of Bremer County and surrounding communities at little or no cost.

If you or someone you know is able and willing to offer any support to this event, please feel free to contact us. No donation is too small and definitely never to large. To ensure that every participant has a good experience we hand out fishing tackle to each participant, as we wanted to ensure that every child went home with a prize! We are in need of items to be given away as prizes such as, new fishing equipment and tackle of any kind, or anything fishing or outdoor related. We offer an optional raffle to the public and are always looking for items to be raffled off. Craft items, art work, donated merchandise are always welcome donations. Additionally we look for donations of soda, juice, paper products, tent use, entertainment, photography, and anything else that makes derby day spectacular.

Our numbers of young children participating continue to grow each year. Also noticeable in growth is the number of grandparents, parents and other family members that continue to fish all summer long with their children in our beautiful city lakes! For that were also very thankful!

As before, you and/or your company’s name will appear in our event flyers, are announced during the fishing contest, and during the prize distribution. If we have a company sign/banner we hang that up during the contest, then at the prize distribution. Any local media coverage, along with a Certificate of Thanks will also be sent shortly afterwards. Thank you for your interest and any help you may be able to offer.
