Ice Fishing

This weekend, anglers from across the state will be casting their support for a Siouxland organization.

Camp Autumn's Ice Fishing Tournament and Fundraiser is set to run from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 15 at Camp Autumn, 4233 Yew Avenue in Sutherland, Iowa.

Along with a kids' ice fishing clinic, there will be chances for novice fishers and more experienced fishermen to take part. Ice huts, poles, and gear are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. People are encouraged to bring their own gear if they have it.

The event is a free-will donation. Proceeds from the event will go toward scholarships for children to attend the camp this summer.

The camp, built in the honor of 3-year-old Autumn Elgersma who died after being abused by her daycare provider, helps children with behavioral health conditions. The camp offers counseling and therapy for children ages 4 to 21.
