The 4th annual contest is sold out! As always, spectators are welcome to watch and cheer on participants. Reminder, anglers under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult.  It is primarily catch-and-release; however, contestants may keep up to three. Day of check-in will begin at 7am; participants must wear ski tags on outerwear. While all must abide by the MN State Fishing Regulations and Licensing, a participant may or may not need to be in possession of a trout stamp. View the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources fishing requirements to determine what applies. Neither licenses nor trout stamps will be available for purchase on site.
