Metamora-Hadley Michigan Area hosts 7th annual Fishing Tournment

The public is invited to participate in the annual Lake Minnewanna Fishing Tournament at Metamora-Hadley Recreation Area, in southwestern Lapeer County, Saturday, Sept. 13, from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

Trophies and prizes will be awarded for various age groups. Pre-registration is not required. The park will have a limited supply of fishing equipment available at no charge for anglers who don’t have their own. Anyone interested in borrowing a fishing pole should contact the park in advance at 810-797-4439. Bait will be available for purchase at the camp store starting at 9 a.m., so anglers who plan to start fishing right at 8:30 are encouraged to bring their own bait.

There is no charge to participate in the fishing tournament, but a Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry to Metamora-Hadley Recreation Area.

Metamora-Hadley Recreation Area is located at 3871 Herd Road in Metamora and offers, in addition to fishing, a variety of recreation opportunities such as boating, hiking, hunting, swimming and camping. To reserve a campsite or cabin at Metamora-Hadley Recreation Area, please visit
