San Joaquin County Parks and Recreation and the Delta Fly Fishers will present the 15th Annual Bob McMillen Memorial Fishing Tournament on Saturday, March 3 at Oak Grove Regional Park in Stockton. Approximately 2,000 pounds of Rainbow Trout (including trophy-size fish) will be stocked in Oak Grove’s 10- acre lake prior to the event.

Named after the late San Joaquin County parks employee and avid fisherman Bob McMillen, the tournament will be open to all ages and feature three competitions: Youth (ages 10 and under), Teen (ages 11 to 17) and Adult (ages 18 and over). Each competition will measure the individual heaviest weight of one trout caught by the participating contestant. Prizes will be awarded in each of the categories following the tournament. Food will be available for purchase.

Park gates will be open at 6:15 a.m., registration closes at 10 a.m. and the last weigh-in is at 12:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded shortly thereafter.

There is no registration fee for the event; however, a $5 fishing permit fee and valid California Fishing License is required for anyone 16 years of age or older. A $6 vehicle-parking fee will also apply. All State Fish and Game laws apply. Participants must supply their own fishing equipment.

For more information, call San Joaquin County Parks and Recreation at (209) 331-2050 or log onto www.sjparks.com. Oak Grove Regional Park is at Eight Mile Road and Interstate 5 in Stockton.
