Annual Vallecito Lake Ice Fishing Tournament

Annual Vallecito Lake Ice Fishing Tournament

PC: Vallecito Conservation and Sporting Association

Craving something to do this weekend that allows you to enjoy the outdoors, but does not require you to strap anything to the bottom of your feet and sail down a mountain? We have just the thing for you! Vallecito Conservation and Sporting Association is hosting their annual Ice Fishing Tournament on Saturday, February 22nd from 9am - 2:30pm. 

 

Why A day on the lake is still fun even when it’s frozen

The Vallecito Ice Fishing Tournament is a day of fun for the whole family to enjoy! Bring jackets, beanies, scarves  and really any warm clothing options you have accessible because it’s an excitement-packed day out on the ice. Even if you’re not much of a fisher, it’s an awesome experience to see the size of the massive fish they pull out of the lake. It might have you rethink swimming in it in the summertime! Don’t worry, we’re joking, these fish won’t try to eat you. 



Calling all Fishermen! Here’s what you need to know 

Registration to compete in the tournament begins on Saturday at 7:30am and closes at 11am at the Vallecito Community Event Center which is located at the northern end of the lake. The fee costs $35 per adult and kids 15 and under are permitted to fish for free as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult. PRID requires that each vehicle pay for a $5 parking pass to park anywhere along and around the lake. Further, each fisher over the age of 15 must have a Colorado fishing license. Snowmobiles will not be permitted on the ice.

Prizes will be given based off of the weight of the two different fish categories:
