The local Fred Waara Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be hosting their 30th annual Trout Unlimited Banquet on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017, at Northern Michigan University, in the Great Lakes Rooms of the University Center.  Doors open at 6 p.m.  The evening will be jam-packed with both silent and live auctions, a 50/50 raffle and a card raffle, and the ever-popular Bucket Draws.

Prizes this year include:

  • guided fishing trips
  • select vintage wines
  • original artwork from local and nationally-recognized artists
  • a wide range of premium fishing gear
  • kitchen wares

  • …and many others; something for everyone!

All proceeds from the Trout Unlimited Banquet go towards the Upper Peninsula’s “Salmon in the Classroom” program, the Escanaba River Association Watershed Partnership, youth and adult fly tying lessons, kids’ trout fishing camp, as well as cold water conservation projects.

Individual tickets are $45 and student admission is $25.  Gold tables for 6 or 8 are a great value at $75 per person, which includes premium raffle and bucket raffle tickets.
