Chatfield Tournament Itinerary

OK folks here's the itinerary for this upcoming weekend at Chatfield Reservoir. If I forget anything please feel free to pile on in the comments section, this is all off the top of my head. May 20th Bass tourney: Check in will start at 3:30am, please have all of the paperwork filled out prior to check in, you can download the ACA form, and the CKFC form from The tournament will take place from the swimbeach, once you have checked in feel free to place your kayak and gear down by the waters edge, help each other out to make the process go smoother. We will do a shotgun start by 5:15am...530 at the latest. The contest will be over at 3pm, unless weather dictates an earlier time. You will be notified the day of the tournament. You can bring in pictures of 5 bass, largemouth or smallmouth, please just bring in 5 pics, I don't want to go through 30 pics to find your best 5. All mouths must be 100% closed, if the checkers are unsure they will call in for a second opinion, once a decision is made, it is final, 1" deduction for open mouth pictures. Once the totals are completed, the winners will be announced. Please have your PFD, Whistle, Hawg Trough, and Flashlight at check in so we can take care of everything in one shot. If you do not pay via paypal by Wednesday night then you will have to pay $50 the day of. Please be sure to pay membership fee as well, if this is your first tourney. May 21st: The only difference will be the species so check in time and paperwork will remain the same. You can bring in 5 pics to the weigh in, you can only have 2 pics of the same species, which means you need to catch all 3 in order to complete your limit. An example would be 2 bass, 2 trout, and 1 walleye. This will make this tourney more challenging, but I feel it will also be alot more fun. Mouths must also be 100% closed for all of the multispecies tourneys as well.

Colorado Kayak Fishing Club (CKFC) Granby Tournament Recap

On October 8th, 2016 the CKFC held its’ last kayak fishing tournament of the 2016 season at Lake Granby.  Those entered into the tournament were attempting to (1) score some of the cash and prizes and/or (2) build points toward the Angler of the Year (AOY) award.  Lake trout, rainbow trout, brown trout and kokanee were the target species for this multi-species event.  Anglers could CPR up to two lake trout and up to five rainbows, browns and kokanee.  A five fish limit (pictures) could be submitted at the end of the day where total inches would determine the winners. 

The day started out at 17 degrees but quickly warmed.  With little to no wind, those anglers who were able to find lakers were able to stay on top of them and record two lakers before moving on to the other allowed species.  Presenting plastics or spoons were the preferred methods for lake trout.  All species of fish were somewhat difficult to pattern as were the bigger fish.  First place was won by Mitch Salzman with a total of five fish at 63.75 inches.  Second place was Alex Rojas at only ¾ of an inch behind Mitch.  In third place was Cole Rodgers at 61.75 inches. 

With his second place finish, Alex Rojas able to add 99 AOY points to his cumulative score throughout the 5 multi-species events in 2016 securing his position as the CKFC 2016 top Angler of the Year in the multi-species division.

The CKFC would like to thank the Parker Gander Mountain store and management team for donating 20 bags of soft plastics to our anglers.  These plastic baits made by Gander Mountain will definitely catch multi-species and be valuable to our anglers in the remainder of the 2016 fishing year as well as next year.  Stop by the Parker store and check out not only the Gander line of fishing equipment but the other product brands.  The fishing team there led by Don Broeren are knowledgeable and accomplished competitive/recreational anglers on Colorado waters.  Thanks again Gander Mountain!
