The Tim Hill Memorial Trout Tournament

Saturday, July 24 to Sunday, July 25

Who’s Tim, and why are we honoring him?

As many of you know, this tournament honors Tim Hill, a longtime employee at our very own trout hatchery who sadly passed too soon. Several years ago, Cherokee’s Fisheries & Wildlife Management Division created this fun and lucrative tournament in his name. 

Did we mention the $10,000 purse?

With a registration fee of $15 and a two-day fishing permit for $17, you’ll be fishing for your share of $10,000 by catching beautiful trout in rivers all across the Qualla Boundary (excluding the 2.2 miles of catch-and-release waters), which will be stocked with tagged fish. When you catch one, you redeem it for cash prizes at the Natural Resources Enforcement Office, 517 Sequoyah Trail, Cherokee, NC 28719, which is across the street from Cherokee Welcome Center off Hwy 441. Prize redemption hours are from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. each tournament day. Register anywhere fishing licenses are sold or at FishCherokee.com by Friday, July 23, 2021. Fishing will start one hour before sunrise and end one hour after sunset each day. Open to all ages and for all legal fishing methods. 

Fisheries & Wildlife Management reserves the right to cancel, reschedule, or amend any tournament or event due to catastrophes, pandemics, states of emergency, adverse weather, etc.
