UPCOMING EVENTS

STARVATION RESERVOIR REGIONAL EVENT

July 13th, 2024

Located in Duchesne, UT the Starvation tournament is focused on Walleye and Carp, with an occasional trout mixed in. The lake is exceptionally clear pre-runoff and the big walleye are post spawn in relatively shallow conditions. It’s a fun venue with camping and comradery close at hand, but we ask spearos to respect the slow growing nature of these fish, and self-restrict shooting the big slow growing breeding females which can be over 30 years old. Studies show that Walleye over 26-1/4” are 99% female.
