The 2020 statewide Trout Derby is set to open May 23 with prize claims starting on June 1.
The Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife says that once the derby starts, it will run through Oct. 31. The free statewide event features more than 100 stocked lakes and over 100 participating businesses.
WDFW adds that they are offering more than 1,000 prizes valued at over $40,000.
Officials state that if anglers land a trout with a yellow WDFW tag, hold on to the tag. Successful anglers will be able to claim their prize here when the claim portal opens. Until then, tight lines to you!
