ZEBRA MUSSELS:

We have been notified by the Park Rangers that they WILL be using dogs to sniff boats for zebra mussel larvae. This means that you need to be ABSOLUTELY certain you have cleaned your boats after Canyon Lake (which you should be doing anyway)! If the dog alerts on your boat, they will make you leave the tournament site to go wash your boat before launching and you will miss the launch. For information on Zebra Mussels and how to protect all Texas lakes, visit the NPS website here: https://www.nps.gov/amis/learn/aquatic-invasive-species.htm

***If you are not weighing in fish, you still have to check in to indicate you’re off the lake or you will not be awarded any points!!
