The predatory Burbot fish has been illegally introduced, hurting all the sport fishing. That is why, for one weekend, fishermen can come to catch as many as possible. Flaming Gorge Resort has teamed up for the one-week fishing event.
The Burbot Bash is usually in January. Register your team of 2-4 members and be eligible for great prizes in a variety of categories with a $30,000 cash prize to the lucky fisherman who catches a tagged burbot and gets his or her name drawn.
See http://www.burbotbash.com for registration and more information.
