The geographically largest fishing derby in the nation!
Join us for the IABA’s 3rd Annual BIG CATCH CLASSIC Derby & BBQ on July 8th & 9th!
Each year this event more than triples in size. Eligible fishing locations include all ADF&G approved Interior waters, lakes, and rivers! Last year, several groups arrived to weigh-in fish caught from their favorite fishing ponds off-site. We had a blast hearing their stories and we can’t wait to hear yours!
