In 2019 we had a total of 73 kids with a total of 131 fish caught. Scheels of Billings provided free tackle boxes filled with tackle for each participant along with a free T-shirt provided by the other sponsors. We started out with a casting clinic by the Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks and finished with a free lunch sponsored by Shelly George, Thrivent Financial. Prizes were handed out in each age group. Jon Koessl from Koessl Construction provided St. Croix fishing poles to the winners of the 12 & over group.

A great time was had by all.

Thank you to the following sponsors:

Scheels, Koessl Construction, Prairie Travelers, Fossum Materials, Free Trader, Walleyes Unlimited, Norval Cooperative, Independence Bank, Sletten Construction, Taco Shack, Northwest Farm Credit Services, Thrivent Financial, First Community Bank, MARCO, Dairy Queen, Wells Fargo Bank, Meadow Gold, Fort Peck Community Credit Union, Montana Dakota Utilities, and Valley Bank.
