This trout season will be exceptional offering many chances to land a wall-hanger fish. Trout anglers that plan on participating in the various spring derbies and tournaments are encouraged to attend this special presentation. What breakfast attendees will discover is that not alone is guest speaker Craig Newton an expert angler, he is a ‘fishing-everything local resource, since he owns his own tackle store. Craig and his wife Kim purchased the only Auburn dedicated fishing store, Will Fish Tackle, in April of 2017.

In addition, Craig also is in regular contact with several and can recommend fishing guides.
