Promoting youth fishing is one of CSBA West Delta Chapter's important objectives. For the last 28 years, we have conducted a free fish derby for local kids. Participants have a chance to fish using tackle that is partially furnished by derby sponsors and partially provided by the club. Club members who are experienced fishermen provide coaching and fishing tips for many kids who are totally unfamiliar with fishing, the water, and the outdoors. Other club members clean and bag caught fish so kids can take their catch home for cooking. Kids learn the fun of fishing as well as the value of our resources and of nature in general. Hundreds of kids participate in this important annual event. Contact the club for details.  The derby is held in the memory of "Compy" Compomizzo and the mission statement is to Get Kids Hooked on Fishing, Not Drugs or Gangs".

Spring is fund raising season for many organizations, and that means CRAB FEED. The CSBA West Delta Chapter crab feed happens every February at the Veterans hall in Downtown Brentwood. The crab feed features an exciting auction, fun games and great food. Our crab feed is known as one of the very best of the season and always sells out early. Funds raised by the crab feed support the free kids derby and other important club activity. Contact the club for details and how to purchase tickets.

The West Delta Crab Feed to support our Kid's Free Fishing Derby is scheduled for April 7, 2018 at the Veterans Memorial Building at 757 First St., Brentwood, CA.  Tickets are $50.00 per person.  The Kid's Derby will be scheduled later in the year.  Our Kid's Derby will be our 31st Annual derby held in the memory of the late Uril "Compy" Compimizzo who started the "Get Kid's Hooked on Fishing, Not Drugs or Gangs" program.  This motto is the theme for our Kids Derby.  For tickets call Mike Hall at 925-634-6356.  Tickets are limited so don't delay in getting yours.


In recognition of the State Board recommendation that all Striper derbies be catch and release only, Capt. Jim Cox came up with this derby for West Delta Chapter members only.

The derby starts after our November meeting and continues through our November 2016 meeting. We will have a slot length of 31" to 34" for qualifying entries. There will be a maximum of two entries per angler submitted for the derby year. Instructions are to photograph the Striper alongside a visible measuring device. Mail the picture to Roger Mammon, 4720 Oak Forest Av., Oakley,  CA  94561. Or email the picture to: Along with the picture, include your name, date and general location of the catch and state that the fish was released.

At the end of the derby year a drawing will be held and the winning draw will have a choice of one of the following two prizes:

1. Trip for TWO with Quetzal Adventures, or,

2. One year of free dinners at the club meetings excluding the Christmas Party Dinner.

All entries must be submitted no later than the November meeting. Fish caught after that will qualify for the following year. Remember, we are all on the honor system for this derby so our President says, "play fair."

It's the Gals vs. the Guys on this fun members-only charter where bragging rights for the year go to the side with the higher total inches of fish caught. Don't ask the Guys how many times the Gals have won this one. Put this one down as fishing, fun, and food.

Our Annual Fish A Thong happened on April 2, 2016.  Ladies against the men to determine who could catch the most inches of fish.  The women won - hardly a crushing defeat for the men - by 1/10 of one inch. No jokes about size matters please.

Largest fish caught by the women's side was a 45" Sturgeon brought to submission by Karen Newton.

For the men, the master angler himself, President Roger Mammon got both a 47" Sturgeon for bragging rights plus he also got the jackpot. Nice going!

Another members-only charter which can be on the Bay, the ocean, or both depending on conditions and what's biting. Good fishing, good company, good fun and good food.  

Our annual trip is scheduled for August 4, 2016.  The cost of the full galley trip is $130.00 per angler.  Dan Bacher & Cal Kellogg of the Fish Sniffer also plan to be on board.

This fund raiser for 2016 has been postopned. Further details will be announced as they become available.  Members and others with surplus fishing items and other stuff to donate are asked bring their goods to the Flea market to be sold. All funds raised will go to the club for the Kids Free Derby or other club activities.
