General Information

Please take a moment to review our General Information Sheet on important aspects of the Greater Wellsville Trout Derby. One important change of note: Due to changes in New York State regulations, camping will only be permitted on-site from 6am on Friday, April 19th to 3pm on Sunday, April 21st. We regret any inconvenience, but we have no recourse but to comply with State requirements in order to ensure our ability to provide camping for future events.
