Cherokee trout tourney offers $20K in prizes
The year’s biggest cash prizes are on tap for fishermen in this year’s Qualla Country Trout Tournament, slated for Sept. 4-6 in Cherokee in Cherokee Enterprise waters.
Prizes totaling $20,000 will be handed out to anglers who buy in with the $11 entry fee, with stocked fish bearing tags indicating their monetary value — some as much as $5,000.
Anglers must hold a fishing permit from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, sold online and at a variety of Cherokee businesses for $10. Organized by the Cherokee Chamber of Commerce.
