Champlain Basin Derby Qualifying Species and Minimum lengths

These species qualify for entry into the Inaugural LCI Champlain Basin Derby. Feel free to print this page your your convenient reference.

 

LCI has established minimum lenghts that exceed state minimum lenghts for the reason of conservation. Please note that this derby is NOT based on a cumulative points system: only your largest fish will be counted. It does not benefit you to bring in more than your largest fish. As a responsible sportsman please keep this conservation ethic in mind.

Please follow state and local laws for season dates. Failure to do so can result in disqualification from the tournament.
