Reel'n for the Rapp

June 12- 26

Join us for our first ever Watershed-wide Fishing Tournament!

From June 12- June 26, you have the chance to fish across the Rappahannock River to win some amazing prizes and experiences.

Participants of any age can fish anywhere within the streams and tributaries of the Rappahannock including the Rappahannock River itself. The Youth category will also be allowed to fish at specific bodies of water in addition to the Rappahannock and it’s tributaries. Registration for the tournament will open on the iAngler website June 1st and stay open throughout the tournament.
