Additional Information:
For the Fall Classic you do not need to be a member of the CWA, unlike for the previous tournaments we held this year. So come one, come all. You do need a boat that meets Coast Guard rules/regulations and do need a live well that will keep the fish alive.

All our tournaments are no kill. If a fish is brought in dead there is a penalty. If you guys wanna see to what lenghts we go to keep fish alive, visit the weigh-in area. There is a very elaborate system a few board members devised to keep fish alive or to help revive them until they can be released. Mirrors what the pro's use in their bass and walleye weigh-in set ups.

If you don't fish at least come down with the kids and have them check it out. A scout troop helped out in the Pueblo event and the boys looked like they had a good time working with all the fish. The holding tanks are right on the beach and easy for every one to visit.

The weekend boat traffic is alot less also that time of year. Last year we  had the lake to ourselves to almost noon. A few hard core skier folks early in the morning then they left after a few hours. I think almost everyone landed more than 20 fish per boat both days also. With a few fish in the 18-21" size.

Keep in mind that some fish do die but CWA tries to return 100% of the fish to the water. A fish that is too weak to be returned to the water is held in our revive tanks until it recovers at which time it is sent down a pipe flowing with lake water. The pipe extends as deep into the water as possible and basically dumps the fish into deeper/cooler water which will help it recover even further. If a fish goes belly up in the lake, we return it to the revive tanks until it is healthy enough to go back into the pipe. Some fish do die but not many...especially this time of year. The fish that die are generally given away to someone that will use the resource.
