The Coosa Canoe & Kayak Fishing Tournament (CCKFT) benefitting the Coosa Riverkeepers has announced they have opened registration for their 2017 kayak fishing tournament events.
The dates and locations are:
- March 11: Lay Lake Open (mid-morning start)
- April 8: Logan Martin Open presented by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama
- May 6: Neely Henry Open presented by Fish Neely Henry Lake
The top 10 anglers over the season will qualify for the Alabama Classic to be held on October 21, 2017 on the Coosa River in Wetumpka, Alabama.
These CCKFT events, sometimes called CRK events, are hosted on a body of water on the Coosa River Watershed. Anglers are allowed to fish any feeder stream that flows into the host lake. In fact, that is what most anglers do as the average angler on this trail likes to fish rivers. That said, a B.A.S.S. pro has been known to show up and kick everyone’s butts by fishing a flatwater lake.
We expect several dozen anglers to fish the entire series. A fly fishing and youth division also helps to draw anglers to these events.
I was talking to someone the other day and said that if it weren’t for these fishing tournaments, I wouldn’t even know about the Coosa Riverkeeper and their cause.
Check out this laid back tournament series and contact the Coosa Canoe and Kayak Fishing Tournament organizers to learn more. It is for a great cause and some substantial prizes can be won.
