Annual Free Fishing Derby

The Tingley Beach Free Fishing Derby is enjoyed every spring.

Tingley Beach's Annual Free Fishing Derby has been held every spring since 2007. Anglers of all ages can compete for prizes at the Derby. A New Mexico fishing license is required for everyone 12 years and older.

Grab your fishing gear, cast a line and reel in special tagged rainbow trout for lots of great prizes. It might be cold, but that doesn't keep the fish from biting. The shores are lined with eager anglers. With hundreds of marked trout, anglers have a good chance of reeling in a winner!

A special thanks to our sponsors for offering gift cards and fishing equipment as Derby prizes. Find more information about this year's event.
