Joining me today are Sarah Cichon- Douglas from Destination Granby and Brittany VanderLinden from Kremmling Chamber. We talked about the 3 Lakes Ice Fishing Contest and Wolford Ice Fishing Contest, which occur in January and February.
True fisherman are not content to forget their passion just because of a little ice. During the winter, ice fishing provides an opportunity to not only bask in beautiful scenery, but also the chance to catch “the big one.” With two different ice fishing contests taking place in early 2023 in Grand County, big cash purses and other prizes sweeten the experience.

Though this competition, held at Wolford Mountain Reservoir, is only one day (7 a.m. – 3 p.m.), there is enough action to satisfy even the most competitive fisherman. Contestants will prime their hooks for the tagged fish cash prizes worth $2,500, as well as thousands of dollars in other prizes. There are also kids prizes, door prizes and a raffle. Registration is $42 for adults and kids under 15 fish for free (unless they want to compete for prizes, in which case they need to register as adults).

Whether it’s as a participant or spectator, there’s nothing like spending a day on the ice. Grab your rod, your best lures and mark your calendars for these fish-focused festivals. You never know what you might reel in!
