If you haven’t heard, the Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge is on again this year, on April 17th and 18th. It’s hard to believe, but it’s the 9th annual event, that is really made for fun for the whole family. The participants in the unique fishing tournament are challenged to catch one walleye, one smallmouth bass and one rainbow trout each day of the two day event. Those who are familiar with Banks Lake know that the lake is full of each of these species, but in the past years no one has claimed the Grand Prize: a four person Achilles inflatable boat with trailer and motor. This will be the year, though—its guaranteed, even if three species are not caught. Thanks to the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce and the generosity of the local businesses, there are other prizes that will be handed out each day, in both adult and youth divisions. So, mark your calendars for April 17th and 18th and plan to fish Banks Lake. To learn all the details about the Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge, and even register online, log onto
