Purcell Carp Classic 2023 Fishing Tournament


The Purcell Carp Classic 2023 will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, September 23, at the Chandler Pavilion at the Purcell City Lake.

The event is hosted by the Purcell Parks and Recreation Department and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife.

The tournament will be divided into three age divisions: 5-12, 13-17 and 18 and up. Ages 5-12 are free to enter and 13 and up are $10.

Each division will have first, second and third place awards for heaviest stringer weight of carp caught.

The overall tournament will have a prize for biggest carp caught and a prize for longest carp caught. Kids 5-12 will also receive a gift while supplies last.

Proceeds from the tournament will go towards future conservation efforts at Purcell Lake.

This tournament is designed to help control carp populations in Purcell Lake. All of the carp caught will not be returned to the lake.

If you or someone you know would be interested in collecting the carp after the tournament is over, contact parks@purcellok.gov for arrangements.
