The Knee Deep Club will hold its fall Lake Hopatcong Walleye Weekend on October 6 and 7. The contest begins at 5 a.m. on Saturday, October 6, and concludes at noon on Sunday, October 7.

The entry fee is $20 for club members and $25 for non-members. Cash prizes will be based on an 80% payout of entry fees for those weighing in the three heaviest walleye. Anglers catching the 4th, 5th, and 6th heaviest walleye will receive a $20 gift certificate.

Take a kid fishing! Any contestant may enter a child up to age 12 for $5. The child with the heaviest walleye will win a rod and reel combo.

Entry forms are available online at (click on “What’s Up” on the left) and at the club’s official weigh stations: Dow’s Boat Rental (Nolan’s Point) and Lake’s End Marina (Landing).

Mail-in entries must be received by Friday, October 5. In-person entries can be delivered until 8 a.m. on Saturday, October 6. A complete list of contest rules is included on the entry form.
