The Fish Sniffer’s own Cal Kellogg will be hosting a low cost, HIGH FUN trout derby at Collins Lake on April 27. If you enjoy trout fishing this is one event you won’t want to miss!
Here’s how the day lays out. The cost to participate is $15 for adults on the day of the derby and only $10 if you sign up prior to derby day. Kids under 15 that sign up on the day of the derby fish for $5, but kids that sign up prior to derby day fish for free.
Fishing will get started on April 27 at 7 o’clock in the morning rain or shine. Anglers can have rods in the water until 2 o’clock in the afternoon. You must be in line to weigh your fish by 2:15 at the rental dock marina.
Both bank anglers and boaters are welcome to participate in this event. This is a big fish derby, so each participant will weigh one trout. If anglers tie with fish of identical weights, the longest fish will be considered the winner. If they are the same length a coin toss will decide placement.
All of the proceeds taken in during this event will go back to the participants as prize money.
The Fish Sniffer will sweeten the winner’s pot with a nice crisp $100 bill for the overall champion!
In addition to monetary prizes there will be rods, line, trout bait and a bunch of other stuff up for grabs. This event promises to be a day of exciting family style fun and let’s not forget that late April is trophy time at Collins!
