The Steve Welgoss Memorial Trout Tournament took place on Saturday, May 26, 2012. A field of 46 entries paid $50 to enter the Round Valley Trout Association sponsored tournament, one of their biggest I’ve ever heard of. The tournament was put together to memorialize Steve Welgoss, the owner of Lebanon Bait & Sport, who passed away Monday, Aug. 8, 2011, peacefully at home at the age of 71.
There was quite a bit of Fog in the morning, making navigation a little hairy. Once everyone got clear of the boat launch area and started fishing the catching reports started rolling in including jaw tagged rainbow trout. Pics and more details at the Lebanon Bait & Sport Facebook Page.
