Lake Champlain International puts on a series of high-profile fishing-related events on Lake Champlain every year, bringing together stakeholders from fishing, conservation and policy points of view to raise awareness and raise funds to improve the overall health of Lake Champlain and the surrounding watershed. This organization makes big splash each year with their Father's Day fishing derby, in which over 5,000 participants take to Lake Champlain to participate in a 3-day event that emphasizes sportsmanship, conservation, and appreciation of the great resource that Lake Champlain is for its diverse fishery and for the impact that a healthy lake has on the local community. I highly recommend and fully endorse the efforts that Lake Champlain International brings to the Lake Champlain basin. Their results speak for themselves.

LCI is a leading and the largest (over 26,000 members) organization dedicated to improving the health and water quality of Lake Champlain. As a member, a friend and a fellow colleague I applaud LCI’s constant efforts and dedication in providing solutions and protecting the Lake from the pollution. In particular, their achievements in educating and spreading public awareness about the Lake water quality and challenging the current water policies that ought to be changed. Aleksandra

They've got the best fishing tournament because they invest in lake and promote taking care of the surrounding environment. When I started fishing in the LCI Derby I never thought that I would care for much more than the fishing itself, but this organization while making the fishing better has opened my eyes to much more. The fishing gets better every year AND so does Lake Champlain itself. LCI has responded to my suggestions for the Derby over the years and now I also go to them with questions about the fish and their recovery programs. Thank you to a great organization keep it up!

I have been fishing the LCI for so many years I've lost track. I had never taken the time to write to the organization with my suggestions for changes, but this year I decided to. Not only did i hear back immediately - from two people, including James Ehlers - but they really wanted to talk and explore my ideas. This reinforced my belief that the LCI is all about excellence and integrity. It's clear that they want to do what is best for the lake, the anglers, and of course the fish too. My hat is off to James and the rest of the LCI team. Keep up the great work, and we'll see you at the derby!

As a native Vermonter who regularly participates in the sport-fishing community, I have witnessed firsthand the outstanding work that the Lake Champlain International has done to help promote conservation, water quality, and family values.

I spend close to 100 days a year chasing after the
numerous sport-fish that swim in Lake Champlain, so I have a vested interest when it comes to preserving this great resource. The work that the LCI has done over the years to support this fishery has been invaluable. Initiatives promoting things like catch and release, invasive species control, and parasite removal have all helped to make this one of the top fishing destinations in the country. In addition, the LCI's underlying focus on improving overall water quality is a task that must be pursued to maintain this resource for future generations.

As a professional environmental consultant and an avid fisherman, I can't say enough about Lake Champlain International (LCI). This organization is vital to the health of Lake Champlain, which in turn is vital to the economic health, especially in the summer months for Vermont and New York. The LCI Father's Day Derby is a highlight of our summers. It's a great way to start the summer once school has ended. My son and I fish the derby with another friend and his boys. This annual event is so much more than just catching fish, it's about teaching our sons lessons in fishing and in life. Time spend on the water without today's distractions is priceless. Thank you LCI for all that you do, keep up the great work.

I participate in multiple fishing derbies with my family. I see the tremendous work required to run these successful derbies. I also rely on LCI to stay informed with the scientific health of the lake and legislative decisions that relate to Lake Champlain.

conduct an economic impact survey so prove how much our economy relies on Lake Champlain.

The organization provides its members with suggestions for improving the health of Lake Champlain as well as a good overview of Lake Champlain's health and sources of problems. They have been very willing to include volunteer opportunities to improve and protect water quality to the organizations' website and newsletters. In addition, they have passed on information about lake friendly lawn care to derby participants. Our education dollars are limited and they have helped to spread the message further then we could on our own.

LCI is a great organization that cares about the greater good of Lake Champlain and its resources. Always great to deal with and attentive to requests from fishermen/women on improvements and concerns regarding Lake Champlain's fisheries. Their dedication and tireless efforts towards holding fishing derbies always results in an atmosphere that promotes the family enjoyment of some of the lakes most valuable assets. I have had some of my best fishing memories from past LCI fishing derbies!

I grew up in the beautiful state of Vermont, and have fished in the streams , rivers and lakes of Northern Vermont since I was 10 years old.I sometimes think that the finest thing my father did for me was to buy me my first fishing rod and reel.
I started fishing Lake Champain in 1980 by
fishing the Lake Champlain Fathers day Fishing Derby. I Have fished it ever since . It has become agreat way to reconnect with relatives who travel here to fish and have the experience that is The LCI.
The best part of LCI as it has Matured under the guidance of Jim Ehlers, is the mission that has come to be LCI, I for one stand by the mission and salute the dedicated staff of LCI and the people who work to support the LCI, and Lake Champlain.
To Jim Ehlers , and all of the LCI staff , I Thank you for 30 years of LCI Derby and counting.

Sincerely, LCI angler (from day one),
John Eisenhardt Jr

LCI has started a great , environmental mission to reclaim Lake Champlain and make it Clean Again. With Jim Ehlers leadership , We can and I believe we will . When we fish we see the results of the Lamprey treatment plan that has made a tremendous difference in the last 30 years.

I think to have Wayne Laroche join the LCI staff could be the fiest change, and this has already happened.

Being native Vermonters, and now owning a small business that depends on a strong and healthy lake we need the fine folks at LCI more than ever. Our business is strongly influenced by the tireless efforts of everyone at LCI. Should anyone every have a question as to where to donate resources or time, you will never go wrong by getting involved with the outstanding folks at LCI.
To everyone involved with LCI, thanks for all you do!

If I had to make changes to this organization I would add more support staff to help them, as well as purchase a modest boat to allow the entire staff to tour the lake and visit boaters from time to time to explain what they do to help them enjoy a healthy lake.
