The name of the Watson Firemen’s annual fishing contest has been changed to Tom Gibson’s Memorial Fishing Tournament. The event will be held August 22, 2020, at Watson Boat Dock from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The entry fee is $20 per person.
Each person can enter one fish. This is a rod and reel only event. Fish must be checked in alive at the boat dock by 3:00 p.m. Prizes will be given to the three biggest fish by weight. All fish may be kept by contestants or returned to the river. All state fishing regulations apply. Fifty percent of the entry fees go to the Watson Fire Department. The rest will be divided between the winners.
