I'm sure it will be packed with people, but is anyone planning on going? They planted 5,000lbs of Mt. Lassen trout and 3,000lbs of dfg stockers, so it should be a good time.
I'm pretty sure the entry is free except for the regular fishing permit. Pretty cool prizes too...

I'd come down if it wasn't 100 miles away. Can't wait for the collins derby that I forgot to enter though :p

Just in case anyone was curious, the derby was a good day out. There were tons of people lining the shore, so we rented a boat. We didn't catch anything, but tons of other people did. I think this was due to our refusal to soak powerbait and use lures instead. We trolled around cowboy cove and fished a bunch of points.
Someone in the under 16 division caught a 7 pounder. I may have to start using doughbaits, but it's so boring.
