CKA has not fished the Asheboro lakes since the spring of 2014, but now we return to our roots with a multi-lake event on these beautiful fisheries. This will be a multi-launch event with a later time limit to ensure that anglers all begin fishing at the same times after launching from these single ramp lakes. As we have done all year, this is a virtual tournament, meaning there will be no in person check-in or meeting, and all anglers must use TourneyX to check in and check out.
For questions and updates, follow CKA on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/carolinakayakanglers/

3. Format and Rules
Format: 5 longest fish (8” minimum length), submitted on approved measuring device (Fish Stik, Hawg Trough or Ketch Board only), entire fish and correct ID entirely in photo.
The CKA event will largely follow KBF rules. Therefore, anglers must be familiar with and follow KBF rules as well as all North Carolina fishing laws and local regulations as they apply. Additionally, the lakes have specific rules that must be followed. CKA/KBF Rules can be found at the link below. Links to lakes are in the last section of this post.

Please be sure to obtain a valid N.C. license. CKA asks for proof of a valid license for anglers who win prizes.
Follow parking regulations at launches. Be respectful and follow good ramp etiquette.

The tournament standings will be unavailable for public view beginning at around 3 pm but you can still post fish until the cutoff. We strongly encourage anglers to post fish throughout the day, especially their first fish.

Upload photos early from the water so that CKA directors can contact you if there is a question or problem with your submissions.
