National fishing tournament coming back to Spring Valley

Posted by wlpo on March 10, 2016

While many enjoy fishing as a hobby, some try to make a living at it.

The annual Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit stop in Spring Valley is next weekend. The fishing starts Friday and continues into Saturday. But many competitors will be out staking their spot on the Illinois River early next week.

Teams of two will compete for thousands of dollars. Last year’s winning team took home nearly $18,000.

This is the first tournament of the Walleye Circuit in 2016. The Spring Valley Boat Club is the launch and weigh-in site.
