I agree on the tournament info. I've been trying to find dates all summer and came up empty. Love that lake..

Great activity for the community to get out and enjoy the park and make a new tradition for the family to begin the new year. This year could not have had any better weather for a great turn out of 105 people! Thanks to DCNR.

I didn't bother gping to fish, it was way too windy. I went to the park and noticed that not many others showed up either. Three needs to be more detailed info about these tournaments and a better contact to answer questions.
