Isabella Lake Fishing Derby






We will have 500 tagged trout which varies in range from $20 to $5,000.

Due to the complex issues we are facing this year with continued challenges of the COVID-19 virus we will not have a formal derby headquarters we all enjoy.

We are in the process of designing a virtual format to accommodate as many as possible to submit your catch via text or email, watch for the derby rules as we are writing them as quickly as possible.

With that said we have had to reduce a number of the items all of us with the derby committee have come to enjoy year after year. This year we have had to remove the three divisions this year Men, Women & Youth along for longest fish as well as our entertaining daily blind boogie drawing and the fish net raffle.

We will have the Isabella Lake Derby hats available but we do not have the T-Shirts which so many collect to remember the event bye.

One other major announcement…a big one. There are always great raffle prizes given away each year at Derby Headquarters, this year is no exception, but we are upping our game! As of now we are officially announcing that thanks to the efforts of the Kern River Lake Isabella Chamber of Commerce and Galeys Marine in Bakersfield, CA. we have a unbelievable item for our anglers.

First Grand Prize Drawing will be a 2020 BassTracker Classic XL, 50HP Mercury Marine Low emission outboard, Minn Kota Trolling Motor, Lowrance Hook-3x color fish finder, dual batteries, live well and a diamond coat tracker trailer. All I can say is WOW!

Second Grand Prize Drawing will be a Honda Eu2200i, 2200 watt Honda Generator. Need I say anymore . AWESOME UNIT!!!!!!

Third Grand Prize Drawing // CASH Yes CASH // We will have two separate drawings for $500 cash on each one.

We are working on additional items with the changes we are following this year to hold this great event.

Make sure to grab a few drawing tickets for these great prizes. Your donations for tickets go to towards the future derby events and can be obtained a the Chamber of Commerce or at various locations in the Lake Isabella Area.

Make a note, we will NOT have a large Derby Headquarters this year. You can stop by the Kern River Valley Chamber of Commerce, located at 6416 Lake Isabella Blvd, right in the center of town, just make a left at the four-way stop coming off of Highway 178 and go about a quarter of a mile and it is on the right hand side.
