A public meeting on November 24 will gather ideas from the public on how to address the rising number of complaints surrounding ice fishing on the Red River north of Winnipeg. (FRIDAY1970 / FLICKR)


An ice fishing competition in Selkirk today will benefit the St. Amant Foundation.

Fishers will take to the Red River between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the first annual Red River Dash For Cash Winter Fish Off. The derby has two categories: heaviest walleye/sauger and heaviest northern pike.

The first place prize is $2,500, with $1,500 and $500 going to the second and third place winners, respectively. The smallest catch of the day will also net a $500 prize.

Registration is $50 for the first ice hole and $25 for each additional hole.

Competitors will meet at Selkirk Park. For more information, visit StAmant.mb.ca.
