Due to weather-related erosion on the road to the trout pond, the Department of Fish and Wildlife will not be able to stock trout for the derby this year.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and will be issuing refunds to anyone that already registered and paid a park entrance fee online.

We hope to offer the derby again in 2018.  Stay tuned for updates!

Please note that the property will still be open to the public on March 25th and all of the ponds will be open for fishing.  Come out and enjoy the San Joaquin River!
