Are you ready for some excitement? Get ready because the Isabella Lake Fishing Derby is back, and we’ve got a lot of amazing things lined up for you. The event will take place over three days, starting on March 23 to March 25, 2024. Here’s what you need to know:

The tournament is open to all fishing enthusiasts, and you can participate by purchasing tickets, which are available for sale now. There will be four tagged trout in the lake, two of which carry a prize of $10,000 dollars each, and the other two carry a prize of $5,000 dollars each. That’s a total of $30,000 dollars in prizes!

But that’s not all. We have many other fantastic prizes lined up for you, including fishing gear, boats, and gift cards. Last year’s early bird drawing winner, Elysa Foley, walked away with $250 dollars. But this year, the Kern Valley Sun is sponsoring the early bird drawing, and the prize amount has been increased to $500 dollars!

The ticket prices are the same as last year, and you can purchase them by visiting https://www.kernrivervalley.com/isabellalakefishingderby. Also, please note that the event is open to all ages, and you can participate as an individual or as a team. There will be food and drinks available at the venue, and you can enjoy a fun-filled day with your family and friends.

We want to make sure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience at the event. So, please follow all the safety guidelines, and be respectful to other participants.

We can’t wait to see you at the Isabella Lake Fishing Derby, where you’ll have a chance to win big and create unforgettable memories.
