2019 Big Star Lake Fishing Contest Information

The Big Star Lake Annual Fishing Contest begins Memorial Day weekend and ends the last day of Labor Day weekend.  We have a new entry form, which should make entering the contest easier.  Download the form above.

We encourage all age and experience levels to participate.  We encourage catch and release practices.
