Annual Lake DeSmet Fishing Derby This Weekend

Annual Lake DeSmet Fishing Derby This Weekend

The 30th annual Buffalo Lions Club Lake DeSmet Fishing Derby will be this Memorial Day Weekend at Lake DeSmet.

This Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, fishermen can purchase day passes and try their luck catching tagged fish for cash, ranging in value from $100 to $2,000 each, and also have the opportunity to win various prizes each day and a chance at the grand prize, a Kymco UXV 500 side-by-side.

Over $50,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs at this weekend's derby.

Lions Club Chairman Keith Neustel said it is hard to believe its the 30th annual derby, and he tells us what the proceeds from the derby go toward.

Tickets are required to participate in the derby and qualify for prizes and are available in Buffalo, Sheridan and Gillette.

In Buffalo, tickets can be purchased at Wa-Hoo liquors, Big Horn Co-op, Sports Lure, Ultimate Outdoors and at the Lake Stop.
In Sheridan, they are available at Quik Sak, Shipton's Big R, B.C.N.U. Bate and Tackle, and Rocky Mountain Discount Sports.
