17th Annual Cherokee Trout Derby Postponed

Friday events will continue, fishing event moved a week for safety concerns

CHEROKEE, N.C. – Today, after consulting with EBCI Principal Chief Richard Sneed, Vice Chief Alan B Ensley, Emergency Management officials, the Water Department, Risk Management and for the safety of the children, visitors, and staff, the Talking Trees Children’s Trout Fishing Derby has been postponed and will not take place tomorrow, August 4.  The tentative rescheduled dates for the events will be August 10 and 11, weather permitting.

 

Principal Chief Sneed had this message for Trout Derby participants. “We apologize for the inconvenience; however, the safety of the children is our first priority and we feel that rescheduling the Derby is the only responsible option.”

 

Based on current forecasting and water level conditions, it would be impossible to ensure the safety of the participants on August 4.

 

The Friday, August 3 activities will continue to take place as originally scheduled at the Cherokee Indian Fairgrounds. There will be registration activities, clowns, music, stickball, food, and door prizes. Additional information about the rescheduled fishing dates of August 10 and 11 will also be provided today at the Fairground.
