Ice-fishing tournaments to heat up your winter

Grand County is anticipating a cold winter, which is a sign to hardwater anglers that fishing is just heating up.

Already on the county’s lineup for getting through the winter months are three of the state’s top ice-fishing tournaments.

Start with the 27th Annual Three Lakes Ice Fishing Contest from Jan. 23-25 on Lake Granby, Shadow Mountain Reservoir and Grand Lake; sled over to the 18th Annual Wolford Reservoir Ice Fishing Contest on Feb. 21 near Kremmling; and finish the threepeat with the Fourth Annual Grand Lake Catch and Release Ice Fishing Contest on Mar. 7-8.

Thick ice, the lure of catching the “big ‘un” and plenty of cash prizes and surprises make this trio of fishy contests something to behold.

Here’s how to get your feet (and other parts) cold.
