The Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club (LPOIC) sponsors two fishing derbies, one in the spring and one in the fall.
The Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club is a volunteer, non-profit organization formed in the mid 1940's, and its mission is to take an active role in protecting and enhancing Lake Pend Oreille and its fisheries.
Revenue generated from derbies and membership fees stay in the area to fund projects to carry out the club's mission. LPOIC works with numerous organizations, including
the Idaho Department of Fish and Game,
the United States Forest Service, Avista Utilities,
the Idaho Wildlife Federation, Trout Unlimited, Bonner County Sportsmen, and the Rock Creek Alliance.
The Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club has always kept the health of Lake Pend Oreille as its highest priority.
The Club will continue to strive for clean water and seek ways to restore the fishery to their productive past. The Club believes the purity and health of a body of water is reflected in the abundance and health of its fishery.
