4 Lakes, 5 Launches…..
Central location, on both new and familiar lakes….
The 2019 CKA season begins…..
It’s time to fish!
Welcome Anglers to 2019 season. If you are new to the Trail, welcome aboard and good luck in the Rookie of the Year race. If you are a CKA regular then you know the battle for Angler of the Year will be long and difficult against some of the best competition in the entire country.
We begin our season with a multi-lake event in the Burlington area. The largest of those lakes is Mackintosh, a lake familiar to CKA. The other three lakes – Cammack, Stony Creek and Graham-Mebane – are new to the Trail. With the exception of Graham-Mebane all are Burlington City lakes with special restrictions. Please abide by all state and local rules. A few general points:
- please bring exact change for launch fees. Lake authorities stressed this point, and it speeds up check in. Your launch fee is not included in the sign up.
- If you contact lake authorities and ask them to open early, then any angler who is present at that time can enter, pay and launch.
We will release the identifier code across our social media (FB, Twitter, IG) on Friday night at 8 pm. Contact: CKA on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/carolinakayakanglers/
Note: The same time must and will apply to all ramps and lakes for lines in. As it stands, the time below will apply to all anglers, regardless of when gates open.
More information about each lake is available below the summary. Please read it all.
