Fishing Derby
June 1, 2013
December 24, 2012
Lake Estes Marina
1770 Big Thompson Avenue, Estes Park, CO, 80517, United States

The 27th Annual Fishing Derby is held at Lake Estes, which is stocked with trout, mostly rainbows, from the Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW) the day prior to the event. Don Fitch  actually caught a 2 lb. 2 oz, 18 1/2″ brown trout native to Lake Estes.
The Fishing Derby is for fishermen of all ages. Approximately 250 – 300 people attend each year.
There will be a contest for “largest fish” in four age groups – for one male and one female – with prizes donated by Estes Park merchants. Categories are: ages 9 and under; 10–15 years; 16–59, and 60 and over. A grand prize will be awarded for the biggest catch overall.
The Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD) in conjunction with the CDOW sponsors the event to benefit EVRPD youth athletic programs.


Registration begins at 6:30am; event at 8am
