33rd Annual Junior Fishing Derby Happens This Saturday!

One of Susanville’s best-loved traditions, the annual Lassen Sportsmens Club Junior Fishing Derby along Paiute Creek and the Susan River, will be held tomorrow, May 21st, and kids aged 2 to 15 are invited to come enjoy a beautiful morning of fishing. The derby is co-sponsored by the City of Susanville, the County of Lassen and the SIR Tribal Business Council.

The busy morning starts at 5:00 with free registration and check-in at the park. Don’t forget to dress warmly because mornings are still chilly along the river this time of year. Registration and check-in end at 9:00a.m.

Derby prizes will be awarded after the 3:00p.m. close of the event, and winners don’t need to be present to win. Kids shooting for the ‘largest fish’ prizes should be off the river by 2:45p.m. and must be in line for weigh-in by 3:00p.m to qualify. Door prizes will be drawn at the same time and for these winners must be present.

This year kids in the 6 to 15 year-old age group have a chance to win bicycles from Grocery Outlet, a rod and reel from Western Nevada Supply or tackle boxes from Larry’s Spirit Gas.

For the 2 to 5 year-old fisher-folk prizes include bicycles from Pregill Insurance, rod and reel from Western Nevada Supply and tackle boxes from Larry’s Spirit Gas.

There will also be sportsmanship prizes sponsored by the Dieter family and Bill Kauffman.
