7     Annual
National Lake Trout Derby
On Seneca Lake 
Since 1964


May 23rd, 24th, 25th 2020


due to COVID -19

The 56th Annual National Lake Trout Derby is STILL ON. With approval from the health department we are moving forward with this years derby.


Some necessary alterations to this years derby are as follows

  1. The only location that will be open for weigh station will be Stivers Seneca Marine in Waterloo NY.

  2. Prize money will be prorated with the number of registrants for the 2020 derby. Mail-in registration cut off extended to May 15th. Online registrations excepted until May 22nd at 5:00pm. Stivers Seneca Marine accepting walk in registrations until May May 23rd at 5:00am and at Roys Marina during normal business hours.

  3. The award ceremony held on Monday at the completion of the derby is CANCELED and prizes will be mailed.

  4. We are not having the blind drawing at the weigh station. We encourage you to limit your trips to the weigh station by checking the online live standings regularly during the derby. Do not bring in a fish that you do not believe will place. We will only be paying out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.

  5. Fish with those family and friends that you have been staying home with. Do not congregate.

  6. The $4,000 cash prize raffle will be postponed until 2021. All tickets sold will be put in the 2021 drawing.


Weigh in station protocol:

  • When you arrive to Stivers Marine, whether by boat or car, please blow your horn or call the marine (315) 789 5520 to let us know of your arrival. Only one boat/car at a time at the weigh tent.

  • Remain 6ft apart while at the weigh station.

  • Return to boat/car immediately after fish are entered.


We appreciate everyone's understanding of the changes to this years derby.
