Dear Fishing Friends,

We regret to inform you that the 2022 Fishing Derby has been canceled. We look forward to seeing you in 2023!

The Derbies promote "catch & release" Each Derby averages 90% to 95% release.


Years Ago

Hank & Chopper Westbrook founded the first Cal-Ore Fishing Derby to raise funds for the enhancement of fisheries and streams within our area so that future generations would be able to enjoy clear rivers, great fishing and beautiful scenery for years to come..


Derby Teams

The derbies consist of teams made up of four men and two guides. These teams are then divided into a A team & a B team. On Friday, the two man, 1 guide, A team will fish Oregon's Chetco River, while the B team fishes the Smith River. On Saturday, the teams switch to fish the opposite river.
