Do you love to fish? Could you use an extra $10K? If so, you may want to enter Aurora Reservoir’s $10K Trout Tournament happening next month with a guaranteed $10,000 cash prize to the biggest (based on weight) trout caught during the one day, six hour tournament.
The tournament will take place on Saturday, May 19th from 5:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Aurora Reservoir (5800 S Powhaton Rd). A free lunch will be served to participants at the end of the tournament and the award ceremony will follow at 2:30 p.m.
There will be two divisions: Adult/Senior and Youth. Both divisions will vie for one $10,000 cash prize and there will be up to five additional prizes per division.
During the tournament, gas boats will not be allowed and watercraft inspections will be required.
