Summer Contest is On!

After a great Lunge Fest at Leesville, we are all ready for the next great event which will be our Summer Contest Saturday and Sunday July 11th and 12th at Piedmont Lake.   With our colder than normal spring, water temperatures for this event in one month should be in great shape, and with Piedmont having a history of big fish, should provide some exciting results.  The event will begin at 7 am on Saturday and concludes at 2 pm on Sunday.  All fish 30 inches or greater will count and be scored using the standard Muskies Inc. method.  Winners of 1st place and 2nd place will receive trophies at our 2021 Banquet.  All fish must be turned into the Tournament Director by 2:30 pm at the Piedmont Marina parking lot.

Being a two-day event, we have talked with the folks at Piedmont Marina and there is tent camping available for that weekend.   Each site has a concrete pad for boat and trailer and room for two tents on the grass.   Contact the Watershed and make your reservations at
