Hatchery Steelhead Fishing Contest

Winter fishing derby on the Mad River in Blue Lake, California. This annual derby is sponsored by the non-profit group: Nor-Cal Guides and Sportsmen's Association. https://ncgasa.org/

Part of the proceeds will benefit the Mad River Steelhead Stewards volunteer angler broodstock collection program.

We will be fishing for Hatchery Steelhead starting Jan. 1 and will run through the end of March. 

For Rules visit official website at www.madriversteelheadderby.com.
Catch a Mad River hatchery steelhead, measure it from a closed mouth, down the center of the fish to the fork of the tail. Take a photo of the total measurement, with the tape on top of the fish. The total length measurement (numbers on the tape) must be clear and visible in the photo. Additionally, submit close up photos of head and tail measurements with tape, they must match the overall length photo measurement. Photos of fish entries must be taken on or at the river. Send photos  to MadRiverSteelheadDerby@gmail.com
