LOVELAND, Colo. -- One of the 500 holes in the Boyd Lake ice will produce a fish worth $3000 at Tightline’s Ice Addiction Tournament Series, Jan. 9. In a spectator and family-friendly atmosphere, the Ice Addiction Fishing Tournaments offer the opportunity to catch a fish and win a prize. A $40 pre-registration entry fee enters any angler who can land their own fish into a 4-hour-long event where the participant is free to choose any pre-drilled hole on the ice, drop a lure or some bait, and pull up a winner.

The Mr. Heater warming tent will include free coffee from Coda Coffee and cinnamon rolls from Johnson’s Corner. Contestants can use this tent to warm up before and during the event! Additional prizes awarded frequently during the event, as well.

Spectators and participants must have a valid Parks pass ($7/daily, $70/annual) to enter the Park. Boyd Lake State Park is a water-sports haven for northern Colorado. The lake lies at the western-most edge of the plains at the foot of snow-capped Long's Peak and the mountains of the Continental Divide.
