Fishy Face-off

Trout derby will begin Saturday

Escondido will host its 30th annual Dixon Lake Trout Derby Saturday through Tuesday.

Prizes will be awarded in five categories: the largest trout of the derby; the largest in each age category (senior, adult and youth); the first and second largest trout of each day; the smallest trout of the derby; and for the first 15 trout brought in that have plastic clips on their dorsal fins.

To enter, each fisherman must purchase a daily permit ($5.00 adults, $4.00 seniors over 60, and $3.00 for kids under 16). Adults 16 and over must also have a California Fishing License.

Fish must be weighed in during derby hours, 6 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., on the day they are caught.
