In light of the current uncertainty regarding the spread of the COVID-19 VIRUS, The Derby Committee has decided to postpone the 25th Kiwanis Special Olympics Trout Fishing Derby. The Committee feels that the health and safety of the Public is paramount in its decision.

It is important for us to continue with our mission to raise funds to benefit Special Olympics even though the derby has been canceled. If you can make a donation this year, it would certainly be appreciated. Make a Donation. This will be done through our PayPal payment portal.

The success of the Derby is due to the unselfish contributions from community individuals and business leaders. All sponsorship contributions are donated to the Special Olympics Organization. Thank you to the many 2020 Derby Sponsors listed on the Sponsor page.

The Trout Fishing Derby is a long-running tradition at Wishon and we hope to resume our 25th Derby in 2023. Thank you for your continued support of this fun event!
