Dylan Compagner Memorial Tournament

If you have been to the catch & release fishing pond, behind the Visitor Center, you have likely  seen a sign naming it the Compagner Memorial Pond. This pond was named in memory of Dylan Compagner.

Dylan was an avid bass fisherman and hunter. He loved life to the fullest, especially if he was outdoors holding a fishing pole. Unfortunately, in 2017, at the age of 24, Dylan’s fishing would only be a memory due to a tragic vehicle accident.

The Compagner family chose to keep Dylan’s passion for fishing a part of their lives, and encourage others to enjoy the sport, by organizing an annual charity bass tournament.
