No doubt about it!  The tree's are blooming, birds are building their nests' and the fish are already trembling as we bust out the old fishing gear wondering what our tactics will be this year.  One thing is for sure...the Larimer County Fishing Expo is a great place to start.

The event takes place on Saturday March 30th from 9am to 6pm and Sunday from 10am to 4pm at the 1st National Bank Building at The Ranch in Loveland.

Admission is FREE and a TON to do for the whole family including the "Fishful Thinker" Casting Contest, Kids Casting Contest hosted by Centennial Bass Club and Fly Casting demonstrations – Hosted by Fly Rod Vendors.  There will be local and state fishing clubs on hand and of course there will be fishing tackle and outdoor merchandise available as well.
