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.
