Join us at this year's Trout Race, taking place at Bearwaters Brewery in Canton. Each trout is made of wood, labeled with a number. This number is tied to each ticket sold and the first several trout that cross the finish line win some amazing prizes! They float downstream between the two bridges.

About the event
- Date/Time: September 9th @ 2pm
- Location: Bearwaters Brewery; Canton
- Maximum Trout Sold: 400
Each trout is made of wood, cut locally by the HCC Woodworking Program and labeled with a number.
This number is tied to each ticket sold and the first several trout that cross the finish line win some amazing prizes!
We place the trout in the river, starting at the main street bridge in Canton, floating downstream to the bridge at BearWaters. We monitor the river daily and if levels are too high from a recent rain event (typically 1 - 2 days before the event), the backup plan is to transition to a drawing (similar to 2022).
