The 2nd Annual William Jessup University Trout Fishing Derby will be held on April 13th-14th at Collins Lake in Yuba County, California.
Sponsored by the William Jessup University (WJU), this trout derby is part of an effort to raise money for church missions. Donations are required to fish ($100 for boat fishing and $25 for bank fishing). Kids 15 and younger fish for free if accompanied by a registered adult.
You can register online for the derby or call Frank at (530) 308-6976.
All participants must check in at Picnic #3 at 7 a.m. Several prizes will be awarded including a $50 prize for the heaviest trout caught over the two day period.
Bring the whole family - and don't forget your fishing license. PowerBait is recommended for catching trout - or if you prefer fishing with lures, you might consider bringing a 3/8 oz. Kastmaster's (in blue and silver) or Orange 4-5 inch broken-back Rapala lures. Downriggers are also recommended for boat fishers (especially if the weather is hot).
Collins Lake is famous for it's beautiful scenery and trophy trout fishing! So this a great fishing event for the whole family!
