Walleye Ice Fishing Challenge

Every year ice fishermen and women gather on the Great Sacandaga Lake for the Walleye Ice Fishing Tournament!

In 2017 the tournament registered 1750 fishing enthusiasts from 11 states and various parts of New York State. The event has sold out in each of the seven years it has been held. Besides cash prizes for the heaviest fish caught in each hour (between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. ), there were several door prizes awarded throughout the day, and two recreational vehicles and a snowmobile were given away to three of the participants.
