The Lake Isabella Fishing Derby is back in the Kern River Valley this weekend.

People from around the country, even the East Coast, will be making their way to the lake March 24, 25, and 26.

The goal is to fish for the biggest trout, with the grand prize of $10,000. This year, all trout are eligible for prizes and none are tagged. The trout have already been planted in Lake Isabella in preparation.


There will even be family-fun events for the kids to enjoy throughout the weekend. Vendors will be out in town offering food and other goods to those visiting. You can even take part in raffles, with one prize being a boat!
