Mattagami Lake hosts 2 tournaments on the NOWT and this event is the highly anticipated walleye tournament opener.

The Mattagami First Nation welcomes anglers from far and wide to try their luck at bringing in the walleyes needed to claim the first place prize. In addition to the warm welcome they receive, anglers look forward to fishing here as the walleyes are big and there are many ways to catch them on these waters located south of Timmins, Ontario.

2018 marks the 19th year of this walleye tournament!

The MFN Walleye Tournament will be a 2-day tournament.  Prizes are awarded based on the total weight of walleyes caught and registered from each day.  Teams consist of two anglers per boat.  Complete details will be provided within the rules and during the team meeting.
