Because of concerns related to the COVID-19 virus and restrictions placed on public gatherings, the Catfish Derby, scheduled for May 15-17, has been postponed until August 21, 22 and 23. The location at the Clearlake Oaks fire station and times will not change.

Contestants who registered by mail as of March 20 will be contacted and offered the option to either receive a refund or hold their entry until the new dates.

New registrations at the $50 early entry fee will be accepted by mail through August 20. Onsite registrations at the $50 early entry fee will start at 12 noon on Thursday August 20. Onsite registrations will also be accepted on Friday August 21 until 11:00PM for $60. Fishing starts at noon Friday August 21 and concludes at noon on Sunday August 23.

We regret having to postpone the derby, but feel that doing so is in the best interests of everyone's health and safety. We hope that everyone can join us on the new dates.
