After a year off due to COVID precautions in 2020, we are excited to be back and at it with our 2021 Otter Street Kids Fisheree!! This event is one of our favorite events to put on, and is a community favorite. To learn more about it, please check the event page here.
This year’s award goes to Howie Dodge. In the words of Terry Wohler, OSFC Treasurer and longtime companion of Howie: “Howie was everything, he was VP, President, started the walleye tournament…Howie was 100%. He worked 12 months out of the year for Otter Street.” Howie’s family joined the Board on stage to accept the honor in his memory. Check the comments for the pic

Special Appreciation Speech from Jan Golliher on the behalf of the entire Golliher family:
We shared earlier this week the story of Greg Golliher and the recovery journey he’s on right now from his massive stroke about 2 months back. Greg’s wife, Jan shared some personal sentiments to the crowd on Sunday afternoon as the walleye tournament came to a close. So many thanks to you Jan for sharing updates with us. We continue to pray and send positive, healing vibes. Also, thank you to all who signed Greg’s card. It’s so heartwarming to see anglers and the fishing community band together yo support one of our own. Lastly below is also an additional video clip sharing sentiments of appreciation to the community for their support.
Fun fact – Greg won OSFC 3 times. THREE. TIMES. Damn! As Jan said, the goal is for Greg to get back to what he loves doing – being out on that lake!!
Thank you so much to this year’s sponsors, volunteers, supporters and, of course, our anglers. The first year of Otter Street C-R-R format was a success, and there are so many people who played an integral role in that!
