This Father’s Day Fishing Tournament, an Elephant Butte tradition since the late 1970s, is sponsored by the Elephant Butte Bass Anglers.

Fishing is on Elephant Butte Lake. Weigh-in is at noon on Saturday at Marina del Sur. Entry fee is $15 per angler; every participant gets a t-shirt, drinks, prizes, and a hamburger & hot dog lunch on Saturday after weigh-in. Any fish species but carp, catfish and stripers can be weighed in, limit 5 fish. An awards party will be held Sunday, and everyone will win something. Trophies are awarded in 3 categories (5 yrs through 4th grade; 5th grade through 8th grade; and 9th-12th grades) for categories including biggest and smallest fish.

Registration and Saturday’s cookout will be held at the Elephant Butte Bass Clubhouse at the Elephant Butte Community Center.
