Smith River, United States, 95567

This annual three day fishing derby is a major fundraisers for the Rowdy Creek Fish Hatchery, the only independent salmon and steelhead fish hatchery in California.  The fishermen taking part in the derby not only have a magnificent time fishing and enjoying the camaraderie, they are supporting the area’s fisheries and the environment.

The derbies consist of teams made up of four men and two guides.  These teams are then divided into an A team & a B team.  On Friday, the two man, 1 guide, A team will fish Oregon’s Chetco River, while the B team fishes the Smith River.  On Saturday, the teams switch to fish the opposite river.

It is Rowdy Creek Fish Hatchery’s goal to keep the Smith River stocked with the fish that make it the best salmon and steelhead river on the West Coast.
