2021 Squam Canoe Classic: Bass Fishing Tournament Series

The SLA is excited to announce our Seventh Annual Squam Canoe Classic! This is a very approachable bass tournament experience with plenty of good natured sportsmanship to go around. The Squam Canoe Classic is all about the love of the lake, having a great time on the water and landing the big one. We are continuing to partner with Eastern Adaptive Sports (EAS) to provide a quiet water fishing experience, allowing adaptive anglers the opportunity to fully participate in the event. For individuals in need of adaptive access, please indicate this requirement upon registration. 

Here is your opportunity to test your skills in a laid back way and to introduce beginner anglers to the art and pleasure of recreational fishing. Load up the canoe, kayak, float tube or any style of human powered watercraft and head out for an afternoon of timeless moments on the water. Quietly ease up to that favorite fishing hole and use all your skill and cunning to hook yourself a winner! 

All registrants must pick up an information packet before the start of the tournament. On July 1st we will place the information packets in a box labeled Bass Tournament on the front entry way at the SLA.

All adaptive registrants can register online and then obtain this packet at River Edge Marina, Ashland, NH, or contact Geoff Krill at geoff@easternadaptivesports.org

This is a motorless event and will be open to any vessel that’s completely human powered. Participants will fish lead-free tackle only, click here for NH's new regulation on lead tackle. This event will be a catch and immediate release tournament. After landing the big one, anglers will document their catch by weighing, measuring and taking a photo then releasing the fish back into the deep where the legend can swim on. Some ambitious anglers may pour over the charts and carefully plan out their paddle route, while others will point the bow, pull on the paddle and follow their instincts. Anyone can participate!
