Blue Mesa Res Lake Trout Tournament Starts
The Blue Mesa Reservoir Lake Trout Tournament is scheduled to run Jan. 1 through April 30, 2024. Tournament is sponsored by CPW in an effort to reduce the population of lake trout 24 inches in length and smaller. This is the first time CPW has held this tournament since 2021. Anglers participating in the tournament must possess a valid Colorado fishing license and follow all Colorado boating and fishing regulations. Anglers who harvest a lake trout 24 inches or smaller can turn in the whole fish or the fish head and place them in a plastic bag provided at one of three boat ramps at the reservoir. Bags can be found at the Iola, Elk Creek and Lake Fork boat ramps. Heads may also be turned into CPW's offices in Gunnison (300 West New York Avenue, Gunnison, Colorado 81230, 970-641-7060) or Montrose (2300 South Townsend Ave, Montrose, Colorado 81401, 970-252-6000). Cash prizes will be awarded in two categories at the conclusion of the tournament. Anglers who place in the top four of most fish turned in will earn a large portion of the total purse. First place will receive $3,000, second will earn $1,500, third place will take home $1,000 and fourth will claim $500. In addition to those prizes, every angler will be entered in a raffle for each fish they turn in. A total of 20 winners will be randomly selected, and each will earn $200. All winners will be contacted by May 31, 2024.

Blue Mesa Res Lake Trout Tournament Ends
The Blue Mesa Reservoir Lake Trout Tournament is scheduled to run Jan. 1 through April 30, 2024. Tournament is sponsored by CPW in an effort to reduce the population of lake trout 24 inches in length and smaller. This is the first time CPW has held this tournament since 2021. Anglers participating in the tournament must possess a valid Colorado fishing license and follow all Colorado boating and fishing regulations. Anglers who harvest a lake trout 24 inches or smaller can turn in the whole fish or the fish head and place them in a plastic bag provided at one of three boat ramps at the reservoir. Bags can be found at the Iola, Elk Creek and Lake Fork boat ramps. Heads may also be turned into CPW's offices in Gunnison (300 West New York Avenue, Gunnison, Colorado 81230, 970-641-7060) or Montrose (2300 South Townsend Ave, Montrose, Colorado 81401, 970-252-6000). Cash prizes will be awarded in two categories at the conclusion of the tournament. Anglers who place in the top four of most fish turned in will earn a large portion of the total purse. First place will receive $3,000, second will earn $1,500, third place will take home $1,000 and fourth will claim $500. In addition to those prizes, every angler will be entered in a raffle for each fish they turn in. A total of 20 winners will be randomly selected, and each will earn $200. All winners will be contacted by May 31, 2024.

Fryingpan River Discussion with CPW - 6:0 pm
When: Wed., May 8 from 6 - 8 p.m. Where: Carbondale Library (Community Room), 320 Sopris Ave, Carbondale, CO 81623 Colorado Parks and Wildlife invites anglers to attend an in-person fishery management public meeting on Wed., May 8 in Carbondale, Colo. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about proposed fishing regulation changes in the Fryingpan River. CPW is proposing to institute new harvest regulations on the Fryingpan River that would increase the harvest of Brown Trout. "Ongoing fishery surveys have documented an excessive abundance of Brown Trout in the Fryingpan River," said Kendall Bakich, Glenwood Springs Area Aquatic Biologist. "The dense population of Brown Trout has led to stunted growth due to high competition and limited food resources. This has also led to an increased potential for disease outbreaks and suppression of other fish species to survive, including Rainbow Trout and native sculpin." The meeting will begin with a presentation by CPW Aquatic Biologist Kendall Bakich followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions on the presentation, proposed regulation changes, or other fishery-related topics specific to the area.
