2021 Tournament Results

This was a great start to 2021 after a long shut-in year!  This years tournament at Curt Gowdy State Park was held on Saturday Jan 9th 2021.  All 3 reservoirs were open to fishing.  In previous years, Crystal and Granite reservoirs were more heavily fished.  This year North Crow was definitely most heavily fished followed by Granite, and then Crystal. There were no tiger muskie caught in spite of the WGF reports of quickly growing tigers in the fishery.  

The wind was very mild this year as well!  A high of 10mph was a record for this event, and we had consistent light snow the entire day.  Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day on the ice. About 450 people turned out for the event.
