Spring 2020 King Cat & King Pike fishing tournament winners

The annual fishing tournament is a free reservation-wide event in which is sponsored by brothers, Aaron and Jacob West.

“My brother and myself have put on for the past few years, to promote outdoor and family-oriented activities for the individuals who reside on the reservation. The cash prize is put up by my brother and self and donations from local programs/businesses are always welcomed. Everyone is welcomed as long as they have an updated fishing license with the tribal game fish and parks,” said Aaron.

This year each winner for the two different categories won a cash prize, gift cards from both the Number Nine Steakhouse and Kelsie K’s Coffee shop.
