Anglers took to the river in Fort Coulonge on Saturday, competing in a brand-new tournament in support of Centraide Outaouais.
Kicking off what hopes to become an annual event, Lucien Graveline partnered with Patro to host the tournament at Canal Patro.
“It’s the first time, Lucien wanted to put it on to help people,” said Suzanne Daze, from the Patro.
It was a quick process from the decision to hold the tournament to the actual day, with Graveline committing to the idea a month before and then organizing that took place.
