A family event! Gather up the kids, pack a picnic, fishing poles and join in the great fishing with 750 pounds of trout (8 to 17 inches long) stocked in the Tierra Verde Lake for the day. A fishing license is not required for the day of fishing during the tournament published times. Trophies will be awarded to boys and girls 15 and under and 16 and over for the "Shortest Trout", "Longest Trout" and "Most Trout Caught" during the derby. Bring your own equipment and bait. Past derby participants have caught trout using canned corn, salmon eggs, cheese, fish dough and/or lures. A fishing license is not needed for the derby; however, a permit will be required for children over 12 years old and adults if you intend to fish after the derby. Licenses can be purchased at the Recreation Center lobby located at 100 S. Old Litchfield Rd. in Litchfield Park during operating hours.
