Trout 4 Treven fishing derby Sunday, October 2 at Cooper Creek Reservoir

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

ROSEBURG, Ore – The second annual Trout 4 Treven Fishing Derby is set for Sunday, October 2 at Cooper Creek Reservoir in Sutherlin. The derby raises funds for the Treven Anspach Memorial Scholarship in honor of Treven who was a victim of last year’s tragedy at Umpqua Community College.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Cole Rivers Hatchery is stocking 1,000 14-inch trophy rainbow trout this week, and Rock Creek Hatchery is adding about 500 two-pound lunker rainbows. The Desert Springs Trout Farm is stocking 650 legal-sized and 150 trophy trout in the 14 to 20-inch range. Cabela’s has hourly prizes for biggest and smallest fish caught.

A valid youth license is required for 12-17 year-olds and an Oregon angling license for those 18 and older. The bag limit is five trout per day, eight-inch minimum with only one trout over 20 inches.

The derby is organized by the Oakland and Sutherlin High Schools’ Student Councils. Their goal is to bring the community together to honor Treven and his love of fishing by donating to the memorial scholarship.

Derby details

  • 7:30 a.m. registration at the main boat launch and picnic area.
  • Derby fee is on a donation basis for the scholarship fund.
  • 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. participating anglers catch fish and record the number of fish caught.
  • Angling licenses are required and the bag limit is five trout per day. ODFW suggests anglers practice catch and release as once five fish are kept, anglers must stop fishing.
  • Nearly $1,000 in prizes are donated by Cabela’s and other local businesses.
  • The Bun Stuffer will have food available for purchase in the parking area.
