Fishing Tournament Results



The 2015 Angler Appreciation Tournament is in the books and what a tournament it was!! This year we had 114 boats
(up from 74 in 2014) compete for cash and prizes totaling $19,857. This is the largest single day payout in Lake Anna History and the largest field in more than 20 years. None of this would have been possible without the anglers, sponsors and volunteers associated with this event. I would like to personally thank each and every one of you.

Our Presenting Sponsor this year was Dubby Carr, owner of Dubby's Fishing & Hunting, located in Harrisonburg VA. They provided very nice event T Shirts for all of the participants. If you live in the Shenandoah Valley, please stop by Dubby's and tell him thank you.
