This is our 25th Annual Full Moon Open Bass Tournament! We are a 501(c)4 organization located in Northern Colorado for 38 years. This is our once a year fund-raiser that helps fund our conservation projects, our Youth Clubs, and donations to local charities throughout the year! Contestants fish twelve hours through the night (7pm- 7am) in hopes of winning prizes and trophies/plaques awards. All Colorado State Laws and regulations are strictly adhered to.
