The Saratoga Classic falls on the second weekend in September each year. Attracting 300-plus participants, aged from four years and up, and with rich prizes up for grabs, there’s no shortage of willing challengers. It’s all friendly rivalry though, and a great excuse for family fun with live entertainment until midnight, markets (free to stall vendors), and festival fare provided throughtout the weekend by the local school P&C.  Refreshment booth will also be on the grounds - NO BYO (Licensed).

Weigh-in is strictly by 12:00 noon each day and this year, organisers are offering a new mobile weight-in service so contestants who don’t want to leave their post, can weigh-in without having to move.

The Baralaba Recreation & Fish Stocking group tops up fish supplies with about 60,000 fingerlings each year.   Proceeds from the competition go towards the restocking of the River for the fisherman of the future.

Camping at the Neville Hewitt Weir is available but works on a first in, best dressed basis.  Sites are limited.
