With a few weeks of dubious ice quality, the 2018 Wolf Howl was hanging in the balance, but Old Man Winter obliged, and the decision was finally made to proceed with this popular event! Here are the results and some fun photo’s from the day, which was held on Saturday, February 17th. The event drew 135 participants and coincided with Family Fishing Weekend, so no fishing licenses were required for entrants. Special thanks to the folks at the Westport Outdoor Association, who work hard to coordinate this much-anticipated derby!
