It’s that time of year for the Failor Lake kids-only fishing derby.

Failor Lake will be welcoming anglers earlier than the regular scheduled trout opener once again as children will be allowed to come out a week before the rest of the state.

The Grays Harbor Poggie Club is hosting the annual fishing derby from 8-11am on April 20, 2019.

This derby is for trout and other game fish in Failor Lake only.

This opener will allow children 14 and younger to get out on the water before the season opener.

Following the derby, Failor Lake will remain closed until the regularly scheduled lowland trout opener on the fourth Saturday in April.

Anglers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery.
