The family of William E. Nelson has established a memorial award in memory of the many years of fishing pleasure William spent at Blue River. The award will go to the youth division and be awarded at each trout derby in November and February. The heavy stringer of each days competition (youth division) will be the individual winner and the overall two day heavy stringer (youth division) will have his or her name inscribed on the memorial plaque that will be displayed at the Blue River One Stop. This memorial award is a wonderful gift from the family of William Nelson.
