Dixon Lake Trout Derby
December 3, 2015 - December 6, 2015
The 37th annual Dixon Lake Trout Derby will be held Thursday December 3rd through Sunday December 6th, 2015. The lake will stock 6,000 pounds of rainbow trout from Chaulk Mound December 2nd. An additional 3,000 pounds was stocked on November 24th.
Gates will open at 6 am, anglers are required to immediately purchase fishing permits from the concession stand. The fishing areas will be closed until 6:15 am to ensure that everyone has their permits before starting to fish.
2nd rod stamps will not be sold, so 2nd rods will not be allowed during the derby.
A $5 parking fee is also charged during each derby day, including Thursday and Friday.
Because Dixon Lake has been granted an Aquaculture Permit by the State of California Department of Fish and Wildlife, fishing licenses are no longer required. However, all anglers eight years and older will need a daily lake fishing permit, which are available at the concession stand. Adult permits are $7.00, and Youth and Senior permits are $5.00.
