Vis will be pretty bad like 2 feet as the wind gets pretty bad there plus the water will be really warm. So lots of algae in the water. Walleye and small mouth bass are plentiful but there is very strict laws regarding size. There is also some catfish, drum, suckers, northern pike, tiger musky,white bass, striper/whiper bass, and of course common carp.

Watch out for all the jet ski activity as well.

Personally I decided to pass on this tournament as the time of year its being held is pretty poor conditions plus its also opening day of Colorado Archery Big game season.

Good luck.

Re: Freshwater Nationals

Normally I would agree but the last 2 years we've had amazing viz in August, last years tournament in aug had 10-15' as where our June tournament (normally better viz) was 1-2'
I talked to the lake superintendent and said to expect similar conditions and levels as last year. Sure we have wind sometimes but you just gotta find the fish out of the wind.
