Hey everyone, I just wanted to put out a reminder that we are 3 weeks out from the first tournament of the year from Colorado Kayak Fishing Club.
This event takes place at Wellington Lake near Bailey, CO. We will be holding a catch, photo, release tournament for trout (any species). Cash and prizes will be awarded. We welcome hand launched, non motorized watercraft not just kayaks. So come out with your canoe, personal pontoon, or if you can handle the cold, fish from a float tube.
Join our group on Facebook for more information and a link to pre-register for the event. We encourage early registration, the cost will go up an additional $10 for “day of” walk up registration.
We hope to see you guys and gals on the water.

And if you are at the Larimer County Fishing Expo, come by, talk fishing and get to know more about the group.

This is a good group of people who help the none motor boater enjoy catching fish.
Kayak, Canoe or pontoons are wellcome.

If the lake is open and ice free, there should be a group prefishing on Saturday and possibly another group prefishing on Sunday.
If not, look for groups out fishing together at Boyd on Saturday.

Tomorrow is the big day. We’ve already got some guys heading up there to prefish and camp tonight. Fishing should be great with a good turn out.

Speculation has already surfaced for the winning “bag”. 100 inch, 5 fish limit? Sounds good to me!

Jeff - It was awesome. Had 40 entrants into the first tourney of the 2015 season. 11 teams brought in pics of 5 or more fish. Chris Molloy (Team Hobie) won with 87". Biggest fish was 22.5". Horsetooth is next on April 25th.

How'd the Pueblo tourney go? Not a facebook guy. Sounds like it would have been fun but no oars for the toon anymore.
Put them on there but keep the motor problem solved!!!

The tournament went well. I believe there were 30 anglers on the water in the event. The winning bag was 83” of 2 bass and 3 walleye.
There were a few keeper sized walleye caught and a few keeper bass, but no real trophies. Biggest fish measured was an 18.5 walleye.
