Montana Walleye Circuit News for 2019

We are well underway preparing for the 2019 Montana Walleye Circuit season! There will be four tournaments again this year. Unfortunately, we were not able to add a fifth tournament this year, but 2019 will be a great year with for our anglers and our sponsors as well, and we will not give up on our pursuit of an additional tournament for 2020. Remember to attend the State meeting in Glendive on March 23, 2019 where we will be presenting the awards for the 2018 Montana Walleye Circuit season. 

While we are waiting for open water again, please take time to be involved in the public scoping for the Fisheries management plan and send in your comments. The Montana FWP is responsible for managing our fisheries and they are asking that we provide input to help them make management decisions. Don’t forget to mention that the dollars Tournament anglers spend are a huge economic impact to our local and state economies.

Hi my name is Andrew Morrison,
I have fished the canyon ferry tournament with my step father a few times and the last few years his boat motor failed, since he lived on a fixed income we could not attend the past few years. In January of 2019 he got very sick and passed away suddenly so this year I have rebuilt his boat and plan on attending as many tournaments as I possibly can. His name was Darwin Sell of Townsend Mt. he has been fishing canyon ferry for years and years and has been a loyal member to walleyes unlimited and I figured it would be beneficial for you all to know of this unfortunate event . Also I would like to know what the costs associated with having my company sponsor some part of the tournament? The business is Titan Machinery we have 101 locations in the us and several over seas in Europe . if you could please contact me at 406-402-9664 I would greatly appreciate it
