Fishing Contest

January 13 - February 17


Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018 kicks off the first day of the Humboldt Steelhead Days fishing contest! The contest runs until Friday, Feb. 17, 2018 (5pm cut off) with a awards ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 17 at Mad River Brewing Co., in Blue Lake, CA.

The 3 biggest hatchery steelhead caught on both the Mad River and Trinity River are eligible to win prizes. Catch a steelhead; measure the steelhead from nose to tail with a measuring tape; take a photo of the whole fish with the tape; and then submit your photo to Humboldt Steelhead Days by posting them to the HSD Facebook page with the hashtag #hsd or #humboldtsteelheaddays or you can submit your photos to humboldtsteelheaddays@gmail.com to enter. If you catch a wild steelhead, please keep it submerged in the river. You can send us a photo and we’ll post to our social media for strictly bragging rights. #keepemwet
