Colorado B.A.S.S. Federation's main purpose is to stimulate public awareness of bass fishing as a major sport and to offer the Colorado Department of Wildlife and other organizations moral and political support and encouragement. To promote full adherence to all conservation codes and to demand adequate water standards and legal enforcement of existing regulatory standards. The CBF also actively pursues lobbying efforts targeted at issues such as the 15 inch minimum on bass, developing new regulations, warm water fish hatcheries, camping/access, catch and release awareness, and other issues that directly relate to the management of bass waters, in the state. The CBF has three primary purposes: (1) insure the future of fishing through the protection and enhancement of fishery resources; (2) promote bass fishing across Colorado as a major sport; and (3) introduce youth to the joys of fishing and instill the appreciation of the life-giving waters of Colorado.
Colorado B.A.S.S. Federation is an organization composed of all the chapters in Colorado. The CBF acts as the governing body with representatives from each chapter. New members are invited to join a local B.A.S.S. Chapter.
