Fund Raising

Make your donation to replace Elk Lake fishing dock in Capital Regional District Elk/ Beaver Lake Park

Victoria Golden Rods and Reels Fishing and Social Club is leading a fund-raising drive in cooperation with World Fisheries Trust.

The existing dock is 30 years old and CRD Parks has budgeted for $125,000 in 2022 which is estimated to be 50% of the total replacement cost. Our club was instrumental in the installation of the original dock. We plan to raise matching funds up to $125,000 from grants and individual and corporate donors.

Elk/Beaver Lake is the largest freshwater fishery on Vancouver Island, supporting 15,000-18,000 angler days per year. It is stocked with 18,000 rainbow trout annually by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC (FFSBC). FFSBC will contribute funds to this project which will be a durable, accessible structure for all ages and abilities.
