New Directors and Committee Members Needed

After several years of tournament organization, the current Dryden Walleye Masters board of directors will be stepping down after the 2022 tournament.

New directors and committee members are needed to ensure the continuation of this tournament beyond June 2022. Without new committee members and directors of the Board to take over, this will be the final Dryden Walleye Masters tournament.

If you would like to ensure the continuation of this tournament beyond its 31st year, please email [email protected] for more information.

All Anglers – Please Read!

Invasive species aren’t just a nuisance – they can destroy our vital fish habitat, even threaten our fish populations.  Help keep our lakes thriving by making sure your boat doesn’t become a taxi for invasive plant and animal species.

Please read the PDF notice below about how you can prevent the spread of invasive species, and be aware about an invasive species already in the Wabigoon chain of lakes.
