The Wally Hall Jr. Memorial Fishing Derby is a tribute to Wally Hall Jr. and his family, who loved to fish and created many memories fishing along the Chilliwack and Vedder River.
Organized and supported by Freds Custom Tackle, Fishing with Rod, Chilliwack Fish and Game Protective Society, anglers register into the annual derby. The derby typically runs from December 1 to March 15 each year. The registration fees are donated to Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition to continue stewarding and restoring the Chilliwack and Vedder River and key tributaries. The goal is to encourage our community to get outside, connect with each other and the river, and through fishing, contribute towards the river's conservation and well-being.
While a derby is not for everyone, you can still donate to the Wally Hall Jr. Memorial Fund and your donation will be used specifically for the Chilliwack and Vedder river watershed to support salmon habitat and stewardship efforts.
