Bill Yarlott, an 87-year old fishing enthusiast who was instrumental in stocking Cascade Lake with kokanee salmon and rainbow trout, passed away in 2015. Thanks to his efforts and the continuing support of our island community, our young anglers learn about the species of trout in our local lakes and celebrate the joy of picking up a pole to catch fish at this annual derby.


This is a community event, and we encourage you to host your immediate family, extended family, friend's kids, or any child who might want to participate. Let's celebrate Cascade Lake's incredible bounty, nature, and a time-honored tradition at the Bill Yarlott Youth Fishing Derby on April 27th!
