The PLRA fishing contest is open for the entire legal fishing season for lake trout and bass. Your entry photo may be reported to any director of the association. If you prefer to catch and release, have a witness measure the length and have a camera with you for landing that big one.
Take a picture of the fish with the person who caught it and email the picture, length and date caught with your entry.
The contest is open to Percy Lake Ratepayers and their families.
The fish must be caught on Percy Lake by a junior angler during the open season.

The big one that got away doesn’t qualify but makes for a great camp fire story.
