VFRA Ice Fishing Contest

VFRA Ice Fishing Contest

Head out to Stieger Lake for the Victoria Fire Relief Association's annual ice fishing contest!

The Victoria Fire Relief Association has canceled the 35th annual Ice Fishing Contest out on Stieger Lake due to deteriorating ice conditions and the upcoming weather forecast. They still plan to hold the raffle drawing on February 11, 2024. Reach out to a Victoria Firefighter if you would like to purchase raffle ticket.

Join the Victoria Fire Relief Association’s 35th annual Ice Fishing Contest out on Stieger Lake from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 11, 2024. There is no cost to enter the ice fishing contest, but raffle tickets are $10.00 each and can be purchased in advance from a Victoria Firefighter or at the event.

Parking is available in the lower lot of ENKI Brewing and the City Parking Lot in downtown Victoria. Free bus shuttle service is available from both these spots, as well as Vic’s and Floyd’s.
