Trout Tournaments

Scouts BSA & Venturing Trout Tournaments

Two Trout events are offered each weekend: (1) fish on Saturday OR (2) fish on Sunday morning.  Each December the lake at Camp Tahuaya is stocked with a truckload of Rainbow Trout from Missouri.  Since 2017 we have doubled the size of Camp Tahuaya’s annual end of December trout stocking and added a mid-January stocking.  Participants keep up to 6 Trout per person.  No limit on Bluegill & Bass.  Enjoy a day of fishing, patch, prizes, lunch, and fishing education tips.

ALL 2020-2021 events will be done outside and have been redesigned to follow Covid-19 protocols!

The Longhorn Council cares deeply about the health and safety of all Scouts and their families. All 2020-2021 weekend events have been redesigned to incorporate the latest CDC, State, and BSA guidelines and make them as safe as possible during the covid-19 pandemic. The updated event plans make it possible for Scouts, adults, and families to have fun in the outdoors while safely following current social distancing and hygiene protocols. Masks are required for 2020.

All events have new procedures for cleaning, sanitizing, hygiene, mask wearing, and social distancing to avoid crowds and to keep our Scouts outside where it is much safer than indoors. 

NOTE:  Please make sure your group brings #10 OR smaller hooks. Recommended casting rigs are light 6′ or longer fishing rods rated for 4 lb to 10 lb line (2kg to 5kg) and loaded with 4 lb–5 lb test line. Shorter rods are harder to learn to cast with. Bring several colors of PowerBait in #14 or #16 sizes.
