Veterans Day Blue River Trout Derby - Nov 11, 2017 to Nov 12, 2017
Celebrate Veterans Day and win cash prizes at this two-day trout derby. The Blue River, located near Tishomingo, will be stocked with trout for the annual Veterans Day Blue River Trout Derby. Trout fishermen will be awarded prizes for the largest trout, biggest stringer and heaviest stinger. All age groups are welcome to participate. Join anglers from across the country as they compete for cash prizes, awards and trophies. Competitors will be split up into categories of male, female, senior, youth and fly fishing.
This trout derby will be held at the Blue River Public Fishing and Hunting Area, located 11 miles northeast of Tishomingo in Johnston County. This region features the clear, spring-fed river flowing through a unique geologic area formed by the eastern outcrop of the Arbuckle Mountains. The Blue River is one of Oklahoma’s most beautiful and picturesque public recreation spots. Attendance for spectators is free; however, there is a small entry fee for derby participants.
