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.
The Round Valley Trout Association’s monthly tournament was on held on a beautiful May day this past Saturday. It was such a nice day in fact that I wound up taking my kids to our local water park. If you ever get a chance check out Doorbrook Park in Colt’s Neck. The park is FREE and it has the most amazing playground / sandbox / water park you can imagine.

I’ve personally competed (and I use the term competed lightly) in a handful of these in my lifetime. They’re a good reason as any to get out and fish! And while, I’ve never come close to winning anything, I have learned that you do need a boat to have a decent chance. Here’s a list of 2012 monthly tournament dates. You can register at the boat ramp, day of the tournament.
