In 2004, the tourney, held on June 25, drew 1,200 anglers, which at the time was a record, and they're already ahead of that pace for 2011.
This is because there are six extra fish stocked in Diamond Lake in Douglas County, where the the event is held.
According to Oregon's Mail Tribune, five of the tagged fish will be worth $100 each, and one, which has been given the name "Lithia Lunker," will be worth $500. Lithia Motors is sponsoring the event, hence the name.
Another $1,000 will be shelled out for the heaviest rainbows caught.
