Triple Fish Challenge coming this month


The grand prize for this year’s chamber of commerce fourth annual Triple Fish Challenge, fittingly, is something that will make fishing easier for the winner.

The Triple Fish Challenge is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, April 23 and 24, at Coulee Playland Resort on Banks Lake, in Electric City.

The grand prize is an Achilles four-person inflatable boat and Yamaha outboard motor.

The “Challenge” is to catch smallmouth bass, walleye and rainbow trout, with various levels of winners in categories like big fish in each species each day, total stringer weight each day, and total combined heaviest six fish for the two-day tournament.

You can register under two categories: junior, up to 15 years old, a $20 entry fee; and over 15, a $60 entry fee.

Online registration continues until midnight, April 21, with on-site registration Friday, April 22, from 5–7 p.m., and continues during boat inspection Saturday, April 23, 6–8 a.m. A driver’s meeting will be at 8 a.m., Saturday.

Awards will be presented an hour after the Challenge is over on April 24.

Those with questions can call the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce office at 633-3074, or Coulee Playland at 633-2671.
