Welcome to the 6th Annual Rafferty Reservoir Walleye Cup!


The RRWC is a story of firsts.  The 2015 launch was the first event ever to be organized by Innovative Outdoorsman Marketing, and it gave rise to our IOMPresents events management division.  It was the first CWT qualifying in Saskatchewan, and it would ultimately lead to two more, and to the creation of the Sask Slam.  In fact, the RRWC is the tournament that starts it all, launching both the CWT’s annual “Trail to the Top” and the Sask Slam.


In 2019, driven by angler demand, we expanded the RRWC from its one day origins to a two day event, complete with Saturday night banquet.  It was a success both on and off the water, as it generated enough interest to have Access Communications showcase it on TV.  It was the first time in almost two decades a walleye tournament here in Saskatchewan had been televised!


As cool as all of this is, none of it would have happened without you, our anglers.  You’re the reason the RRWC was created, and you’re the reason for its success.  Due to your continued support, we’re proud to announce that the 2020 Rafferty Reservoir Walleye Cup will once again feature a GAURANTEED $10,000 CASH PRIZE for 1st place!





Tournament Director – RRWC

President, Innovative Outdoorsman Marketing Ltd







James Turner has been the driving force behind the RRWC since its inception, and couldn't have made a better choice of event given his love of fishing and passion for marketing.

Rafferty Reservoir Walleye Cup was the first of many tournaments that James has added to his list of events, and as such it is the one that he holds most dear to his heart.  RRWC was also the first event that James combined his vision of conversation and education about our Saskatchewan fisheries and their importance for future generations.


Through his work with both the Saskatchewan Sportfish Research Group and the Government of Saskatchewan , James and his team have helped spread the word about conservation in the fisheries and education about invasive species issues.  It is his hope that educating the masses will ensure the fisheries will survive and thrive for future generations to enjoy!

Check Back Often



As incredible as being part of the CWT is for us, we wanted to do a little more for our anglers, particularly those that come out to participate in all three of our walleye tournaments here in Saskatchewan, so we created the Sask Slam.  We have prize categories based on overall performance at each of the three qualifiers - Team of the Year, Angler of the Year, and Big Fish of the year.  The Sask Slam also has the “Win A Shopping Spree” component, which provides anglers at each of the three tournaments a chance to win a $500 Gift Certificate to one of the promotional partners!
