Delta Fly Fishing Challenge

What is the Delta Fly Fishing Challenge?

An angler recognition program to promote knowledge and appreciation of sport fish that reside in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, encourage local fly fishing, and increase awareness of the Delta and its natural resources.

What do you do:

• Catch and release six different Delta sport fish (from a list of 15) from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta using fly fishing gear. See this link for the complete rules.
• Complete this application, and submit the application, photographs, and $5.00 to cover printing, handling, and shipping fees to:

Delta Fly Fishers

What you receive:

After receiving your documentation that you have completed the challenge and your fees, Delta Fly Fishers will mail you an 11” x 14” color certificate suitable for framing. Only one certificate per year may be earned.
