Fishing for Education – Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club Scholarship 2018

Attention all you LPOIC members, anglers and more importantly, Mothers and Fathers. Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club is always looking for ways to improve our lake, our fishery, our club and now our community.

For a club that started some 70 years ago, the community of Sandpoint has been a big supporter of the LPOIC and our activities. This year, we’ve decided to give back to our community and the students who help to make our community a great place to live, work and play. This year, the LPOIC will be awarding a $500.00 Scholarship to a graduating senior from Lake Pend Oreille School District, which includes Sandpoint High School, Lake Pend Oreille Alternative School and Clark Fork High School.

We hope in the coming years to expand our Scholarship Fund to include another $500.00 scholarship that will expand outside of Bonner County, especially because we have so many members and anglers from out of the area. In addition to that, if we can raise enough donations, we will offer two continuation scholarships for students who continue onto their sophomore year in college.

If you have a son or daughter interested in advancing their education, please feel free to fill out the application, which can be found below and at Sandpoint High School or our Facebook Page.

If you are interested in making a donation helping us meet our goals for scholarships, please feel free to speak to any board member, or you can send your generous donation to Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club, P.O. Box 1589, Sandpoint, Idaho 83864.

Thank you to all who have already donated and in advance to any others that are considering it. The investments we make in our children today will bear fruit in our futures.

With many regards,

Clint Nicholson, Vice President, LPOIC

ATTENTION ALL ANGLERS! MESSAGE FROM LAKE PEND OREILLE IDAHO CLUB…Many of you have heard and are aware that there was a dust up and our long standing 40 year plus Thanksgiving Derby was in jeopardy of not receiving a permit to hold our derby. We are happy to announce that our derby has been granted a permit and we will be fishing the week of Thanksgiving, as we have for so many years. I’ve attached the Derby Poster here and put it up on our website. No changes have been made to our derby rules. In moving forward with conservation and restoration of the Rainbow fishery, this derby will be a Challenge Derby. There are many reasons we’ve decided to make this a Challenge Derby, but the biggest reason is that the Rainbow fishery has not been restored and is in a fragile state. From the years 1977 to 2000, LPOIC awarded 166 patches for fish being caught over 25 pounds. From 2000 to 2017, 5 patches have been awarded, the last two were Mackinaw. Our Rainbow fishery needs as much help as possible right now and we are committed as a club to do everything we possibly can. We encourage you to release as many small fish as possible to give them the necessary chance to spawn in the Spring. You should be aware that there will be another derby on the lake at the same time and if you have any questions about that derby, you need to contact the organizers of that derby. Thank you to all the board members of LPOIC, members and any and all people in support of our club, especially our sponsors. THANK YOU!
