Catch and Release pin

Trophy Trout
Catch & Release

Since the late 1990s, Lilleys’ Landing has been handing out catch-and-release pins and certificates to anglers who successfully release a 20-inch or longer rainbow or brown trout on Lake Taneycomo.  This program has encouraged fishermen of all ages to release thousands of trophy trout for others to enjoy.

We encourage all anglers who intend to release their catch to practice safe handling techniques that will allow a released trout to thrive and grow for another angler to catch. Click the button below to learn more.
