Last February, Mill River Brewing BBQ & Smokehouse held its 2nd Annual Clean Water Ice Fishing Derby to benefit the Friends of Northern Lake Champlain (FNLC). About 150 people of all ages participated in our inaugural event, which was a one-day, family-oriented yellow perch fishing derby that emphasized education and fun.

In response to COVID-19: Organizations that host ice fishing derbies may do so under the following conditions.
Participants fish only with immediate family members or members of their immediate household.
Participants consistently maintain at least six feet of physical distance from anyone outside their immediate household and do not occupy shanties or popup shelters with individuals outside of their immediate household.
Participants must wear cloth face coverings whenever six feet of physical distance from anyone outside their immediate household cannot be consistently maintained, and are encouraged to wear a face covering throughout the duration of the derby.
Organizers must eliminate potential congregations of participants: Set up a process for fish entries that minimize groups and person-to-person contact.
Do not utilize fish display boards that attract crowds of viewers.
Eliminate in-person awards ceremonies and arrange individual prize pick-up for a later date under controlled conditions.
