Fishing Derby Cancelled!
Posted 01/25/2017
We apologize for any inconvenience but due to unseasonably warm weather this year causing early thawing on Lake Mazaska, we unfortunately need to cancel our annual Ice Fishing Derby this year after consulting with both the Tri Lakes Sportman’s Club and the sheriff’s department.  We look forward to colder weather and fishing opportunities next year!
