Stagecoach State Park will be hosting an ice-fishing tournament Sunday, Feb. 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., sponsored by Steamboat Great Outdoors, a local guide and outfitter.
The tournament is limited to 200 adult entries with a $25 early registration fee, or $30 if you register the day of the event. There is no fee for youth anglers.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Oak Creek Fire Corps.
The event is limited to trout species only and winners will receive cash prizes.
A valid park pass is required and carpooling is encouraged due to limited parking.
The park is allowing OHVs and snowmobiles on the reservoir below the high water mark for commuting to fishing destinations only.
Current Colorado Parks & Wildlife fishing regulations apply to all participants, and pets are welcome but must be on a six-foot leash at all times.
