34th Annual Sportsmen’s Club Jr. Fishing Derby Set for May 20th

At the 2021 Jr. Fishing Derby

One of Susanville’s best-loved traditions, the annual Lassen Sportsmens Club Junior Fishing Derby along Paiute Creek and the Susan River, is scheduled to be held May 20th, 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.

This year’s Derby is dedicated to Travis and Terry Jackson, long-time supporters of the Junior Fishing Derby.

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. Click here to download the registration form for this year’s derby.

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.

The first three-hundred young anglers to register will receive a souvenir derby hat courtesy of Guess Plumbing. Biggest fish wins a custom rod and reel donated by Dave Huhtala.

This year kids in the 6 to 15 year-old age group have a chance to win bicycles from Susanville Grocery Outlet, a rod and reel from Western Nevada Supply or tackle boxes from Lassen County Federal Credit Union.

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 Lassen County Federal Credit Union.

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

From 5:30 to 8:30 free breakfast for all kids, sponsored by WalMart and the employees of WalMart. From 10:30 to 1:00p.m., free lunch will be provided for all kids, sponsored by Frosty Mill; Susanville Supermarket; Alpine Beverage; Grocery Outlet; Burger King; Diamond Mountain Mini-Mart.

Adults may have breakfast or lunch for a donation of $2.00.
