Bowfishing enthusiasts should make plans now for the fifth annual Kaskaskia River Rough Fish Roundup bowfishing tournament on Saturday, July 13, on the Kaskaskia River at Wood Duck Marina near Baldwin. The tournament is hosted by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Kaskaskia River State Fish and Wildlife Area (SFWA).
The tournament will be a daytime event taking place from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on July 13, and will consist of both a boat and a walking/shore division. 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 will also be held.
Boat division teams may be comprised of one to four members. The walking/shore division is per participant. Both divisions will be 100 percent payback. Payback amounts and the number of places paid will be based on number of entries, with payout guaranteed for top three places in both divisions.
