2017 Fishing Tournament
The 6th Annual WLCL Fishing Tournament is Saturday, June 10th. This is the time again to show your stuff on how you can catch fish on White Lake and take home some nice prize money and later get some recognition with a nice plaque commemorating the event with your buddies at a recognition event.
Men, woman, children, and families are welcome to participate. Each boat is responsible for their own fishing equipment. All of the rules are listed below. Good luck!

Archive of Fishing Reports from Previous Years:
The Michigan Department of Community Health, which issues fish advisories for all water bodies in Michigan, indicates that the levels of contaminants in White Lake are relatively good in comparison to other inland lakes, and especially good in comparison to rivers and the Great Lakes. The current statewide advisory more than adequately provides safeguards for consumption of fish from White Lake. Information regarding advisories and consumption of fish is available at www.michigan.gov/fishandgameadvisory
