Join us on the river in a fun, lighthearted setting while shedding light on threats that the river currently faces. Participation will be limited to 20 teams of 2 anglers each, and will take place on the Big Wood River in Ketchum, Idaho. A reception dinner will be held on Saturday, July 25 to welcome participants and kick off the tournament. Sunday, July 26 features a full day of wade fishing competition. Following the competition will be an awards dinner and fundraiser. Awards will be given to the top anglers and teams, and prizes will be given for a variety of other categories as well. Funds raised through the competition will go toward improving and sustaining the wild trout fishery anglers have come to expect from the Big Wood River. A few of the goals for the Big Wood include:
- Enhancing and improving habitat along the mainstem of the river and its tributaries.
- Enhancing stream flows.
- Restoring disconnected tributaries and habitats.
- Working collaboratively with state and federal resource agencies to assess watershed conditions.
- Engaging in youth education to encourage resource stewardship.
