The Second Annual Jurassic Classic was held on the Fraser River in beautiful Chilliwack, British Columbia August 19th through 21st, 2017. The weather was perfect, fishing was good, and WSF Chapters and Affiliates raised much needed dollars for wild sheep conservation. This event saw people travel from all across North America to participate in friendly competition, camaraderie and lots of laughs.
The Wild Sheep Society of British Columbia, as one of the hosts of this event, welcomed 28 teams of 2 anglers to our great province. This event is a fundraiser for wild sheep conservation and all funds are put into on the ground projects in BC.
