Anglers ready to compete in 23rd annual Governor’s Cup Walleye Tournament this weekend on Lake Roosevelt

The Governor’s Cup Walleye Tournament on Lake Roosevelt was held in July when it debuted 23 years ago. “It was moved it to June to avoid the hot weather,” laughed George Allen, noting the forecast of temperatures above 100 degrees for this weekend’s event. “I’ll have ice in the cooler, the live well and in my underwear,” he said, the veteran of all but one of the annual tournaments.
