Bass Series at Miami Whitewater Forest
We had a sellout crowd at Sharon Woods lake for the Bass Series tournament on June 29. A father-and-son combo, Steve and Matt Wheeler, won the event with a five fish limit weighing over 14 pounds! That is the most weight of any bass tournament this year!

Chris Macarthy Memorial Fishing Derby
The Chris Macarthy Memorial Fishing Derby was a huge success at Mitchell Memorial Forest. The pond was stocked with 500 pounds of catfish. Kids of all ages had a blast catching fish all day long. Youngsters ages 12 and under who caught one of 50 tagged fish won a trophy, and each child who caught any fish received a special certificate to commemorate their accomplishment.
