During Humboldt Steelhead Days, anglers from all over descend upon Humboldt county for the three-month contest, which sees $10,000 in prizes doled out to the biggest catches and best fish photos. With a $10 entry fee, a registered angler gets to compete against all comers for the contest’s holy grail: a $1,000 cash prize for the contest’s largest fish.
But Steelhead Days is probably equal parts concert and festival, with guided river walks, restoration tours, art shows and river clean-up days. Its proceeds go toward the restoration and rehabilitation of the three rivers — Mad, Eel and Trinity — featured in the competition.
