Blowing Rock Trout Derby

A fun, annual event is coming up over Easter Weekend. The Blowing Rock Trout Derby is a one-day tournament that is aimed at introducing children of all ages to fishing. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a first timer it is sure to be a memorable day. 

There are no entry fees or registration required, only a valid fishing license. The only fish eligible for entry are those caught in Watauga County public trout waters. All you have to do is bring your biggest catch of the day to the Official Derby Headquarters at the Blowing Rock American Legion Building (beside the parking deck on Wallingford Street) to be measured and weighed. Children ages 11 and younger, and people with disabilities, are permitted to fish at Mayview Lake at Broyhill Park and limited to three fish per participant. Cash and prizes will be awarded for different age groups at 4:30pm at the American Legion. We wish you all tight lines!
