The Warren County Ice Fishing Challenge invites anglers to share their catches over Instagram through the month of February.

WARREN COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — With COVID-19 social distancing concerns keeping in-person ice fishing competitions at bay, Warren County has created a remote challenge for February to give anglers more reason to spend some time out on the ice.

With the Warren County Ice Fishing Challenge, the county is inviting fishers to share their catches on Instagram, hashtagged #mylgarea and tagged @lakegeorgearea. The first 100 anglers who share their fresh fishes from the ice will receive a free T-shirt commemorating the challenge.
