First off this is not an official WTKF event, but we are all super excited to see more West Texas tournaments popping up. Make sure you read official rules here as they could change from the time they were pasted below (I will try and keep them updated if they were to change). You must be logged into Facebook to see the post. The submissions will all be via Facebook as well.
If you are able to make this event I can almost guarantee you a good time. It is on a stretch of the Consho river close to town with plenty of hotels/camping within 5-10 minutes of weigh ins and launch sites. When I lived in San Angelo I fished this exact portion of the Concho pretty regularly. This is actually the stretch of the Concho river that enabled my addiction to kayak fishing. I never caught any “huge” fish in this river, but I know they are there. I did however have hours and hours of fun and caught a decent amount of fish for not knowing what I was doing. I still don’t know what I’m doing I just try to keep my line wet and that seems to increase my odds of catching a fish.
Here is a map of the boundaries for the tournament. I will be adding launch sites that I have personally used as time permits.
If you don’t have a team member join Kayak Anglers of West Texas (KAWT) Facebook group or leave a comment below and I bet you can meet up with somebody willing to fish.
