Please join us and your fellow American Carp Society members from across the USA at our annual members event to be held in Canton, Texas from OCTOBER 10-13th.
Mill Creek Lake in Canon, Texas is the American Carp Society’s officially sanctioned ‘Bow-Fish free’ lake in the United States and holds a strain of incredible fish. We support this city for its leadership in protecting our beloved species and this annual event is something very special.
This years event is extended an additional day for a pure social atmosphere prior to the actual fishing event to include US Carp Vendors, Panel discussions, special guests and a tackle trading post for any anglers wanting to trade or sell tackle. Raffle and door prizes will be given for all those in attendance. It is an opportunity for socializing and meeting your fellow members before the commencement of the fishing event itself.
There will be prizes for total weight as well as big fish.
There will be event specific T-Shirts for all Anglers in attendance included in entrance fee.
There will be gift bags for every entrant into the event including unique 2019 Mill Creek merchandise also included in entrance fee.
All Anglers entering the event will be featured in an event specific print copy publication that will be available to the public the following year. Your fish captures will be professionally documented for you…this is an opportunity to be involved in something very special that will increase the awareness of our great sport.
The fishing will be done in teams of two, some anglers will be boated out to swims in areas of the lake that have never previously had access. The city of Canton has helped us in preparation of the lake and the entire lake will be in use for the event, however there are limited spots available for the event itself and entries will be given on a first come, first served basis.
