No pre register this year at the park.  The only register will be done day of event starting at 5am. Its at the same location as in the past , the old boat house by the ramp.   You can register then head out to fish.     PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING CAN GOODS TO DONATE TO A LOCAL FOOD PANTRY.   Thanks!!!

Hope to see you all  there!

Is there a makeup date in case it gets cancelled? I don't see how we will be fishing the 28th on ice.
