Rough Fish Roundup tournament is Saturday

Kaskaskia River State Fish and Wildlife Area will host the 2021 Rough Fish Roundup bowfishing tournament at Wood Duck Marina in Baldwin on Saturday, July 17.

Bowfishing enthusiasts are encouraged to make plans now to participate in the annual tournament, a daytime event taking place from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and consisting of both boat and walking/shore divisions. The boat division will feature a Big 10 format, and the walking/shore division will feature a Big 3 format. Big fish and small fish contests also will be held.

Tournament waters are those located within the Kaskaskia River SFWA, with the exception of Baldwin Lake and the tailwaters below Jerry F. Costello Lock and Dam. That translates to 35 river miles of the lower Kaskaskia River and connected backwaters from Lenzburg to the Costello Lock and Dam.
