The Weyburn Wildlife Federation will be hosting the Second Annual Walleye Classic at Mainprize Park this Saturday, June 10th, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Board Chair Troy Kincaid said you can firstname.lastname@example.org or you can attend their registration and rules meeting on Friday at Pederson Place at 7:00 p.m. There will be an entry fee of $150 for a two-or-three-person team, but the third angler on any three-person team must be 15 years of age or younger.
"We're going to try and keep it an annual thing and hopefully it's a goal for years to come," he shared.
Fishing events like this are fairly popular, noted Kincaid.
"They go all the way throughout the summer, but in July and August they're typically not ran just to due to the fact that the water is so hot, and the mortality rate on fish goes up a little bit when that happens, so usually May, June, September, October are your are your fishing months for tournaments."
The funds raised from the event will most likely be going toward improving the filleting shack.
"Either at Mainprize, that's where we put our money from last year," he told. "We're just in the process of doing some major upgrades there, and then actually we're going to get the one at Nickle Lake into a little better shape than it is. Hopefully eventually put a building up there and a table and stuff like that. Right now, it's just kind of a canopy with a little table kind of just put together. We'd like something a little more permanent."
