Kids ages 3 to15 will fish free and lunch will be provided by the San Diego Anglers. There will be special prizes and trophies for the largest trout of the day. Face painting and many fishing-related vendors will be on hand as we thank them for their continued support of the Derby.

Adults can join in the fun too, just show your CA fishing license and a lake fishing permit of which half of the proceeds will go towards next year’s event.

Raffles will be offering a chance at great prizes and even better memories with your young anglers!
