Trout Derby Rescheduled for Lake Dixon 

11/13/14 Categories: City of Escondido

For Immediate Release

Contact: Dan Hippert, 760-839-4240

Escondido Rangers announce that the 36th Annual Lake Dixon Trout Derby will begin on Friday, December 5, 2014 and run through Sunday, December 7, 2014.  Large trout and great fishing have been the hallmark of this annual event. The Grand Prize winning Rainbow Trout at 19 of the past 25 derbies weighed in over 8 pounds.

 

To enter, each angler must purchase a daily permit normally required to fish the lake ($7.00 adults, $5.00 for kids under 16 and seniors over 60). There is no additional charge to enter the derby, but the $5 vehicle entry fee into the park will be charged each day of the derby. Since Lake Dixon now has an Aquaculture permit, a California Fishing License is no longer required. Fish must be weighed in during derby hours, 6:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., on the day they are caught. Since contestants can win only one prize, chances of winning are good.

 

To make this three day event competitive for the novice as well as the skilled angler, there are a variety of ways to win. Prizes will be awarded for the following five categories: the largest trout of the derby, the largest in each age category (senior, adult, and youth), the first and second largest trout of each day, the smallest trout of the derby, and for the first 15 trout brought in that have a plastic clip on their dorsal fin. In the event of a tie, the winning fish will be determined by the first fish weighed in.

 

For further information, contact the Lake Dixon Ranger staff at 760-839-4680.

Trout On Their Way to Lake Dixon 

11/10/14

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Dan Hippert, 760-839-4240

 

Rangers at Escondido’s Lake Dixon say that cooler weather has dropped the lake temperature into the safe range for the first scheduled stock. The trout season will officially begin this Wednesday, November 12, with the first stock of Nebraska Tailwalkers from Chaulk Mound Trout Ranch.  The fish are being transported from Nebraska, so there is no specific time when the fish will be delivered.  Historically, delivery takes place in mid-afternoon. The size of the stock is yet to be determined. The dates for the 36th Annual Lake Dixon Trout Derby will be announced shortly.

Since Lake Dixon has been granted an Aquaculture Permit by the State of California Department of Fish and Wildlife, fishing licenses are not  required.  However, all anglers eight years and older will need a daily lake fishing permit, which is available at the concession stand.  Adult permits are $7.00, and Youth and Senior permits are $5.00.  A second rod permit can be purchased for a $2.00 fee.

 

For additional information, please contact the Lake Dixon Ranger Station at (760) 839-4680.

Escondido Trout Derby Postponed 

10/30/14 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Dan Hippert, 760-839-4240

 

Escondido Rangers have postponed the 36th annual Trout Derby at Lake Dixon, originally scheduled for November 8 through 11. The postponement is due to the unseasonably warm water temperature which is delaying the restocking of fish at the lake.  Currently the water temperature remains in the mid 70’s which is too high to allow the restocking of fish. In order to guarantee a healthy stock of fish, water temperatures need to be below 70 degrees.

There is no new date for the Derby yet, as it will be based on what the water temperatures do over the next couple of weeks.

The public can contact Lake Dixon directly at (760) 839-4345 for up to the minute information.
