Default American Bass Association Colorado Region

Hello to all Bass fisherman in the State of Colorado!!! My name is Bill Plains and i am a Tournament Director for American Bass Association! I have Been running tournaments for over 8 years in California and have recently moved to Colorado for Work and i am starting up a couple regions out here! I will have a southern region and a northern region. Right now the southern region only consists of Pueblo Reservoir! I am looking for and interested to hear about any other Lakes that have good Bass fishing either small mouth or largemouth in the southern part of the state! The northern region i have Horsetooth but i can only do 2 events there so i need other lakes. I have heard that Wolford is a good option so i am looking into that but havent been able to get ahold of anybody at the lake. Any other options i am glad to entertain the ideas. I have contacted John Martin Reservoir and Granby lake but they both said the bass fishing wasnt good enough to make for a decent tournament.

I hope you have some tough skin.

You need to do some more research on which fish are in which lakes here.

^^^^^^^This!!! 1st, Wolford doesn't have bass along with Granby. It would really help to search this map to find lakes then talk to people that do fish for your certain species. Good luck!!!
I'm losing my mind, but if I keep the part that tell me when I have to pee I should be OK!

Haha... Granby would be perfect for stocking bass.

If you're looking to do a tourney in northern Colorado... I suggest looking at Elkhead reservoir. Lots of nice sized black bass. And the lake could use the positive publicity.
I'm here to ruin it for ya,... I, spoiler.

The only other southern lake that I would recommend is Trinidad-good lake for smallies and largemouth. And yes, you need to do more research.

Like the first reply says, I hope you have some thick skin, as can be seen from the other posts. Let me also say, I'm glad to see ABA back in Colorado. I started fishing the old District 55 back in 04. Lots of fun, unfortunately I no longer own a boat, but may consider going as a non-boater if that is still an option.
So, on to your question. Pueblo - great bass lake. Another option in the south would be Navajo. Northern waters I would suggest are Chatfield, Boyd and Lonetree. Chatfield can get real busy in summer and weekends; fishes really good for smallies in early spring and does have some largemouth. Same applies to Boyd. Lonetree is a great largemouth lake, smaller in size and has a wakeless only restriction. If your really in a pinch for another north lake, Carter is an option.

I live in the North and all the Lakes that Stratosfaction said are great LMB lakes and ones that I would recommend. It is great seeing a ABA again. Let me know if you need anything from me as I am willing to help in anyway I can.
Tight Lines Everyone!
