The freshwater lake also is home to bass, bluegill, red-ear sunfish, crappie and catfish. In preparation for the derby, the lake recently was stocked with thousands of pounds of trout.
Derby tickets are $5 per person. General admission to the park is $10 per car. A valid California state fishing license is required for those 16 or older.
