After hosting two lake trout harvest incentive tournaments at Blue Mesa Reservoir in 2020 and 2021, Colorado Parks and Wildlife continues to monitor lake trout abundance to provide recommendations to manage the fishery. No lake trout tournament is planned for 2023, however future tournaments are expected to be held. Abundant small lake trout were sampled in 2022, so anglers are encouraged to harvest smaller lake trout that they catch.
