Trout Fishing Derbies

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)–The County San Bernardino Regional Parks holds competitive fishing derbies at their five lakes through the season.  In December 2011, 306 anglers vied for $1000 in cash and other prizes at the Cucamonga-Guasti fishing derby in Ontario.  The winner and runner-up each hooked and landed monster rainbow trout weighing more than 10 pounds apiece – and the top five fish from the derby combined totaled more than a whopping 38 pounds!

The next trout fishing derbies will be held:

January 7, 2012 at Yucaipa Regional Park, 33900 Oak Glen Road, Yucaipa.

February 11, 2012 at Prado Regional Park, 16700 S. Euclid Ave., Chino.

The derbies begin promptly at 7 a.m. and conclude at 1 p.m.   Park gates will open at 6 a.m.

Participants must have a valid California State fishing license.  Derby entry is $15 per person, plus $10 vehicle entry into the park.  For more information, visitwww.sbcounty.gov/parks or call (909) 38-PARKS.
