SCDNR Youth Fishing Tournament postponed

COLUMBIA, S.C. — With growing concerns from COVID-19 and recommendations from both Gov. McMaster and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has made the decision to postpone the 2020 SCDNR Youth Fishing Tournament scheduled for March 28.

In addition to statewide school closures, we feel it is the safest decision to postpone the tournament.

“We’ve considered many alternatives and heard your input,” said Sarah Chabaane, SCDNR Aquatic Education Coordinator. “I value all the time, effort, and resources that student anglers, coaches, parents and boat captains put into preparing for this event.”

SCDNR will continue to evaluate the options of rescheduling as the next few weeks progress.
