Dartmouth Cup Yamaha Fishing Classic
  |  First Published: August 2013

The 19th Dartmouth Cup Yamaha Fishing Classic 2013 started with a drizzle Friday, which put a damper on the start of the weekend, but the weather picked up Saturday and Sunday turning the weekend into a fantastic event.

There were over 500 entrants. Many competitors chose to camp out on the lake for the weekend, coming in to weigh their fish at the boat ramp weigh station on Friday and Saturday afternoons.

This year again we had three boats up for grabs 36 club/teams entered to compete for the Ian Clifford Memorial Club/Team Championship. We were privileged to have Tom Clifford in the competition and on the night to present his father’s memorial award to the winning club, Reel Time.

Although many said the fishing was hard, there were over 1000 trout weighed in – 200 more than last year.

The winner of the Major Prize was Ryan Davies from Murchison who won a Stacer 399 Proline BMC Deluxe with a Yamaha motor 25hp NMHL two-stroke outboard with a trailer – Redco RE1213 alloy wheels. Second prize was a Stacer 359 Proline Car Topper that was won by Red Stuart from Walwa, and the third boat in the Dartmouth Cup Yamaha Fishing Classic Raffle a Stacer 399 Proline BMC Deluxe, Yamaha Motor 15hp two-stroke outboard, on a Redco RE1213 trailer with alloy wheels was won by John Bouteris from Lavington.

Gary Hale weighed in a 1.740g brown winning the biggest brown trout on Sunday. Ray North weighed in a 1.205g live brown trout winning the biggest live weight on Saturday. Many other great trout were caught over the weekend and many other great prizes were won with over $55,000 in prizes and sponsorship. A big thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers who made the weekend successful. – Dartmouth Cup Yamaha Fishing Classic
