Lake and License Info
Season Five of the Carolina Kayak Anglers tournament trail begins on Lake Hyco, a new lake to the CKA Trail. Located in the northern central Piedmont, Hyco is a large power company reservoir covering 3,500 acres. Its 160 miles of shoreline are dotted with docks as well as natural structure, supporting a fishery known for many freshwater species. This will be a Black Bass Tournament.
This will be the only single-launch event of the season. All anglers must be present at the morning meeting in order to fish the event as we will review some important CKA tournament changes. Please review CKA Rules using the link below.
Please be sure to obtain a valid N.C. license and follow parking regulations at the lake’s two launches. Note that motor boats do launch at both ramps (be respectful and follow good ramp etiquette).
Boundaries and Rules
This event will follow KBF rules with the standard CKA exceptions (i.e. no motors, etc). This means that an angler is still responsible for following KBF rules. Therefore, anglers must be familiar with and follow KBF rules as well as all North Carolina fishing laws and local regulations as they apply to Hyco Lake. Exceptions and rules are found at the link below:

NOTE: The Captains Meeting is mandatory. If you arrive late and miss the meeting, you will be issued a refund and excluded from the event. NO EXCEPTIONS! In addition, if you launch and paddle away during the meeting, you will be DQ’d.
In order to register for the event, sign up using TourneyX. Please create a Tourney X angler account for event registration and CPR submissions if you have not done so – the basic account is free! Note: Be sure to update your phone so that browsers and apps run well.
- CKA Event Fee: $50.00
If you will require a manual upload with the assistance of a tournament director, you should plan to be off the water a bit earlier so to allow directors to help you and avoid holding up the event. Tournament directors cannot be responsible for working out technical glitches and waiting for updates on phones to complete. If technical problems cannot be resolved, your fish will not be accepted.
The tournament is a single launch event using the ramps located at the Hyco Lake Authority location. This will be the only eligible location to launch (addresses are below). This is because KBF rules require equal access for all anglers; therefore launching from the lake’s primitive launches will NOT BE ALLOWED for this event. There are no launch fees.
The Captains Meeting will be held in the launch area. Again: if you do not attend the meeting, you cannot fish the event.
CKA will provide identifiers at the Captains meetings for this event.
