Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 New River Paddle Fishing Tournament!  A big thank you to all that participated and joined us for the biggest Tournament turn out yet!

120 anglers braved the drizzle that lasted until Saturday afternoon for a shot at placing in one of the 5 fishing divisions including the Musky Challenge.  The largest bass was caught by Junior Division Champion Jackson Norton from Ferrum VA, measuring 18 3/4 inches.  The Musky Challenge was won by Jeff Ross from Christiansburg VA with a Musky measuring 45 inches. The tournament raffle for the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 Angler was won by Spencer Williams from Blacksburg VA.  Below are Tournament Pictures and the list of division champions and the combined length of fish. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Tournament next year!
