Fishful, Although I won’t be able to attend the lunch and festivities, will I still be able to buy a raffle ticket or two. Do I need to be there in person if I should be fortunate enough to be a winner?
Hey all, FishFest is this Sunday 8a-1p at Horsetooth Reservoir's South Bay Pavilion. Water is up and the fishing is good right at the venue. You dont have to pre-register...you can purchase the $5 lunch (which includes a raffle ticket) and additional raffle tickets (3 for $10) on sight with cash or credit card.

You can fish the whole time...these are break-out sessions for those interested. If you have need help rigging your own tackle (especially for kids) we will help, and we'll have some kids tackle on hand to loan out on a need basis. Bring your adult tackle...fishing is good right around the pavilion for bass and panfish!
Both lunch ($5) and raffle tickets (3 for $10) can be purchased on site, cash or credit...and lunch includes one raffle ticket!

Thanks a ton to those who attended! Also thanks to the companies that made it possible. Lots of fish got caught, lots of prizes went home, and many hot dogs and root beer floats were consumed. The weather wasn't exactly great but folks toughed it out. Thanks again! CL
