StriperFest Jr. Angler Nominations

Call for Jr. Angler Contest nominations!

The Cape Fear River Watch StriperFest 2014 fishing tournament is coming up soon, on January 17‐18, 2014. This tournament is the Cape Fear Region’s premier striper tournament and supports Cape Fear River Watch’s ongoing efforts to restore migratory fish populations in the Cape Fear River.  Wilmington Water Tours is once again sponsoring the Junior Angler boat in the tournament as a way of ensuring that young people learn the importance of our fishery resources and become engaged in their protection and improvement.

Do you know a young angler (age 9‐15) who deserves a chance to fish in the tournament for free? Nominate them by emailing Riverkeeper Kemp Burdette  Include a short bio for the young angler, and why you think they deserve a shot at fishing in the tournament.  Nominations are due no later than December 20th, 2013.

Our Cape Fear River Striper Foundation Board will select 3 finalists and conduct interviews to choose our winner.

The winner will fish in the January 18th, 2014 tournament ($1000 value) with one of our region’s most experienced guides and the adult chaperone of their choice. They also receive 4 tickets ($200 value) to the StriperFest Banquet and Auction on Friday January 17th, 2014.

We look forward to receiving your nominations.
