The Blue Coast Walleye Challenge is returning to Sarnia-Lambton for a second year, running June 3 to 12 in the St. Clair River and Lake Huron.

The second annual event, hosted by the Bluewater Anglers and Angler’s Atlas, uses a mobile app for the fish weigh-in.

Participants download the MyCatch app, take a photo of their fish on a measuring device, and the app determines the winners.

“The event will also gather important data for fisheries researchers on the state of our fisheries, and continue to support the Bluewater Anglers with restocking our river and lake,” said Tourism Sarnia-Lambton’s Vicki Praill.

Proceed will support the Bluewater Anglers hatchery operation and conservation initiatives.
