Lake Tye fishing derby
The annual Kid’s Fishing Day at Lake Tye in Monroe will be held on Sunday, April 27 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Adult Derby begins directly after the Kids Derby.
Kids twelve and younger will have a chance to catch rainbow trout up to 10 pounds and prizes will be awarded. An adult must accompany children. The Kids Derby is held at the south end of Lake Tye in a special netted area.
This event is hosted by Sky Valley Trout Unlimited and area businesses as sponsors.
This special fishing day is attended by over 1,000 children eager to catch the biggest Rainbow Trout. The event teaches children to become responsible stewards of the environment through the wholesome outdoor activity of fishing. It is an excellent opportunity for you to spend time with your child, volunteer or make a donation.
After the Kids Derby, the nets are removed and a special tagged fish with a bounty of $500 is added. Once the horn is blown, adults have until 5:00 p.m. to catch this special fish. The cost to enter the Adult Derby is $10.
Sky Valley Trout Unlimited helps raise approximately 50,000 Coho each year. The eggs are received each spring from WDFW and by fall they are large enough to fin clip and then can be released the following spring in to the Snohomish River System for their journey to the ocean.
