In 2018, a group of ice fisherman comprised of Helitack, Smokejumpers, and Dispatch personnel were sitting around holes in Lake Cascade chasing Jumbo Perch. As the day carried on, and frosty beverages became empty, someone had an idea. The idea was to compete amongst each other in typical angler fashion: $20 pot… biggest fish takes all. But the conversation soon changed to donating the money to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation to help their brothers and sisters in need. After the small competition was over the Deep Freeze for Fighters Ice Fishing Tournament was born. Each year since that day on the ice, the tournament has grown with community involvement expanding. It has become a family friendly event that attracts anglers from all over the country.
2023 Tournament: Come Join us for the 2023 Deep Freeze for Firefighters Tournament Saturday, Feb. 4th. On the day of the tournament, registrations and check-in will take place at Boulder Creek Boat ramp in Donnelly, ID from 0730-0830. Entry fee is $25. Raffle Tickets can be purchased 1-5$, 5-$20, 15-$50. Weigh-in will be at the Roost Bar and Grill in Donnelly starting at 1630 and ending at 1730. No fish will be weighed after 1730. Winners will be determined by the total weight of their 3 largest yellow perch. There will also be a prize for biggest trout. Immediately following the weigh-in, winners will be announced, and the raffle and live auction will start inside the Bar upstairs. The Roost will have a short menu for folks to order food and a full bar.
