52nd Clearlake International Worm Races
Presented by the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce, live worms of all sizes will race to become champion. Clear Lake is known for being the “Bass Capital of the West,” but the unsung hero for anglers are our favorite Lake County invertebrates. Last Year drew more than 300 participants and this year we’re expecting an even larger turnout!
Bring your own worm, if you wish, or rent one from the famed Worm Stables of the Clear lake Chamber of Commerce. Competitors in three age-class divisions – under 6 years old, 7 to 14 years old and 15 and over – will vie for cash prizes and trophies.
Worm races will begin shortly after the parade ends.
