Turtle Creek Reservoir Regulations, Tournament Rules and Registration
IN-07 Tournament Updates:
Overall, fishing has been good at Turtle Creek Reservoir, and many teams have caught some great fish. These fish are fat and put up a good fight. Please reach out to one of the directors with any questions about the tournament. We would love to host you at Turtle Creek, and the anglers are having a great time.
Turtle Creek Reservoir has a 20 inch minimum size and 1 fish limit. This rule must be followed during the IN-07 Tournaments. This is one fish per person, so a maximum of 2 fish per boat will be allowed, heeding the 20 inch size limit. This information is important as one person teams could be at somewhat of a disadvantage compared to two person teams.
Inclement Weather: Turtle Creek is a large lake, and even moderate breezes can cause turbulence on the water. The reservoir has a warning system that can be heard anywhere on the lake should conditions be unsafe. In the event this happens, you are to get to shore as quickly as possible...do not try to get to the boat ramp if conditions are unsafe to do so, however, this is your judgement. This is the only time where motors bigger than a 9.9 can be used at higher than idle speeds to get to shore/boat ramp.
Motors: In good weather conditions, motors bigger than a 9.9 hp can be used, but only at idle speeds.
Gate at Day of Tournament: Please do not arrive to the reservoir prior to the 90 minutes before the tournament starts. The gates will not be open until then, and truck/trailers should not be lined up on the road outside of the gate...this poses a safety hazard. Do not show up earlier than 90 minutes before start.
