Mad River Steelhead Derby
This annual steelhead derby was created in 2019 by Nor-Cal Guides & Sportsmen’s Association (NCGASA) and North Coast anglers who fish the Mad River in Blue Lake, California during the winter steelhead run. Proceeds from the Derby benefit the nonprofit organization NCGASA.org and the Mad River Steelhead Stewards volunteer angler broodstock collection program in coordination with the California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDFW) and the Mad River Hatchery.
A 2023 Derby leaderboard will be posted on our POST/BLOG page once entries are verified. Please subscribe to our Blog for more info.
Derby rulers are available at RMI Outdoors‘ fishing counter. If they run out, please contact us to deliver more.
Please read the Derby RULES page before fishing.
