The Paynesville Sportsmen's Club organized a Monday Night Walleye League, a weekly fishing contest.

It was held on Monday nights on Lake Koronis, from the Five-Mile Bridge, and Rice Lake, from the new access.

The final tournament is this Sunday, August 11. To qualify for the championship, teams needed to fish in one tourney on each lake. The prizes for the championship tourney will probably be near $1,000, tourney organizer Mike Odghal said. He estimated that 40 boats will participate this weekend.
