Tim Hill Memorial Trout Tournament

07.24.2021 @ 6:30 am07.25.2021 @ 9:00 pm

Tim Hill Trout Tournament

Cherokee remembers their very own Tim Hill, a longtime beloved employee of the trout hatchery, by hosting a trout tournament in his name. With a registration fee of $15 and a two-day fishing permit for $17, you’ll be fishing for your share of $10,000 by catching beautiful trout in rivers all across the Qualla Boundary (excluding the 2.2 miles of catch-and-release waters), which will be stocked with tagged fish.

When you catch one, you redeem it for cash prizes at the Natural Resources Enforcement Office, 517 Sequoyah Trail, Cherokee, NC 28719, which is across the street from Cherokee Welcome Center off Hwy 441. Prize redemption hours are from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. each tournament day. Register anywhere fishing licenses are sold or at by Friday, July 8, 2022. Fishing will start one hour before sunrise and end one hour after sunset each day. Open to all ages and for all legal fishing methods.
