Fish available for ‘adoption’ ahead of trout race
Trout are available for adoption for $10 apiece ahead of Haywood Waterways’ Sept. 10 trout race.
This year, the trout race is hosted by BearWaters Brewery in Canton, which sits right on the Pigeon River.
Trout adoptions will be limited to 400, and there will be at least six winners. Prizes include a restored bamboo flyrod by Thomas Custom Rods valued at $1,500, Publix gift cards and more.
The trout race helps to support Haywood Waterways work that includes river clean-ups, assessing streambank damage and finding the technical and resources to fix the issues caused by these floods.
It also supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of Haywood County to help the youth of Haywood County reach their potential.
