Hey, everyone! Guess what???
For the FIRST TIME SINCE 2011, the Cotter Annual Trout Tournament is once again OPEN TO ALL MAKES/MODELS OF BOATS!!!
This is great news for those of you who haven’t participated since 2011 because of the former restriction to Shawnee/Supreme boats.
It almost didn’t happen at all this year, which is why the announcement is so late. A BIG THANKS to everyone at the Cotter / Gassville Chamber for getting it going again! There are some changes, see the info below, along with the application form and the rules.
Make your lodging reservations NOW if you want to be in the tournament, and we’ll get another TEAM HIS PLACE RESORT going!!! BECAUSE OUR FISHERMEN ARE BETTER!!!
2017 Annual Trout Tournament – Open Invitational
It’s once again time to gear up for the 2017 Cotter-Gassville Chamber of Commerce White River Open Trout Tournament. This year’s tournament will be held Saturday, March 18, 2017 at the Big Spring Park in Cotter, Arkansas. We are anticipating a large turn-out for this tournament and are limited to the first 125 teams.
This year’s tournament is open to any type or make of boat. The entry fee is $100.00 per team and an optional $25.00 is required for the Big Fish Pot. In addition to entry into the tournament, your fee buys you two tickets for the meal and two tickets for the door prizes. Winning payout is based on number of teams entered and the Big Fish Pot is 100% payout.
Major changes for the 2017 tournament are as follows:
1) There will not be a boat draw as in previous years.
2) Big Fish Pot winners big fish weight will be deducted from the team’s total placement weight.
3) There will be no fly fishing only bonus.
