River Center Jr. Angler Tournament 2016
Join us for our 3rd annual Jr. Angler Fishing Tournament hosted by the River Center. The Tournament begins June 3rd and ends July 16th. Anglers must photograph the fish they catch and then submit their catch logs and photos. The contest awards points not only for the number of fish caught, but also for the number of different species represented in the submissions. The more fish you catch and the more species you catch, the better your chances are to win fantastic prizes! This Tournament is open to anyone between the ages 5 and 17 but registration is required before submitted photographs can be awarded points. Register online now or pick up a registration packet at the River Center. A registration fee of $25 per angler includes a t-shirt and an invitation to the "Tournament Fish Fry" where the winners will be announced and prizes awarded on Saturday, July 23rd at noon.
