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.

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.

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.
