2021 Bighorn Carp Tournament

WHEN: Friday the 9th of July from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

WHERE: Ok-A-Beh Marina on Bighorn Lake

The annual Bighorn Carp Tournament has a long history beginning as a guide competition put on by the fly shops. Through time the event was turned over to the Bighorn River Alliance as a fundraiser for the Bighorn River and we gladly continue the tradition. After the tournament a celebratory BBQ follows from 5 to 8 p.m. in Fort Smith where the winners will be announced.
