Each year for CalTrout's Photo Contest, many hopeful contestants submit their best photos of California fish, rivers, and outdoor beauty for a chance to win amazing prizes and have their photo featured in our publications and media. We receive hundreds of entries and are always blown away by the spectacular images captured at just the right moment.
Below, we're highlighting some exceptional photos from the 2021 contest that artfully showcased California's waterways and wild fish across the state. Though they didn't take home the grand prize, we found these photos to be worth sharing. We hope you enjoy them!
Also, we're sending a big 'THANK YOU' to all the people that join CalTrout's Photo Contest for sharing their fantastic shots with us. Keep 'em coming!
