The Derby Fish have ARRIVED!!!

On Tuesday, Nov. 14, the Department of Fish and Wildlife delivered approximately 10,000 fish (2,000 lbs at five to a pound) to the fish pens at Red’s Kern Valley Marina where they will be fed three times a day by volunteers until three days before the derby in March. Isabella Fish Derby Chairman Fred Roach and several derby volunteers were on hand to meet the delivery and transition from truck to pens. One of those beauties could grow up to be the $10,000 prize fish. It’s all about the length.
