Lake Gregory Classic: Trout Derby
$5,000 In Guaranteed Payouts

Saturday May 27th, 2017 | 7:00am to 3:00pm

In the last couple of fishing derbies, we offered the traditional tagged fish program. Catch 1 of 10 tagged fish, win a prize with the chance of winning $50,000. No one won.

And insuring this event cost us over $5,000 each time!

Instead of paying the insurance company this year, we are going to give it all to you. No tagged fish. No picking envelopes. No one getting skunked this year.

The Rules Are Simple:

  • Longest fish wins (not weight)
  • The fish must be presented live at the boat house
  • 7:00 am to 3:00 pm is the competition time frame. At 3:00pm, all contestants will put down their fishing poles. Contestants are allowed to bring their “live” catch to be measured at any time during the course of the derby.
  • 3:00 pm – all entries that are brought to the boat house will be measured and will be listed on the “Leaderboard.” Contestants will have a picture taken with their catch.
  • 3:30 pm – our winners will be announced and given a check. (Contestants will also receive giant checks)
  • Fish must be captured alive, using standard hook & line fishing techniques. No netting, shocking, or explosive actions allowed. NO Fish Finders, Radar allowed.
  • Only 1 claim allowed per contestant. NO Multiple Claims, Multiple Attempts at a claim, or Re-try’s allowed.
  • NO Current or Former employees, director’s, officer’s, any employees’ directors, or officers, immediate family members, agents, successors, assignee’s of the sponsor/client, any promotional company, advertising agency, organization or company involved with the event are eligible. The parties acknowledge that Lake Gregory Recreation is NOT liable for reimbursement of any prize(s) otherwise payable to promotional contestants who are in violation of this provision.

There will be a $25 on-line entrance fee for each contestant. $35 at the gate. The prizes will be based on length of the fish versus the weight. Each contestant will receive a contestant bib in the mail that they are required to wear to streamline the check-in process. If they lose their bib, there is a $15 fee to receive another one.


  • 1st Place winner receives $3,000
  • 2nd Place winner receives $1,500
  • 3rd Place winner receives $500
