The main event will be held at the Millenium Hotel, a terrific location right on Boulder Creek. This area is ideal, with good fishing right there at the hotel and a beautiful trout-viewing platform also right there. Details are being worked out and will be unveiled in the next few weeks. But, to give you a general idea of how it will work:
Day 1: Presentations and clinics held at the hotel grounds. Special participation of Dr. Ishigaki who will be flying from Japan for the event.
Day 2: Open fishing, no registration required. We’ll be fishing and encouraging people to fish at Boulder Creek.
Registrations: Registrations for the Tenkara Summit will open on May 1st online. We expect the cost of registration to be $25, which will include lunch.

While there are multiple other options in town where you can stay, we’d like to encourage guests to stay at the Millenium Hotel as we’ll have after-hours entertainment, it is a great location, and it will help us with the costs of the event.
If you’d like to reserve a room for dates outside September 25-28, please call 303-998-3830 and say you’re coming for the Tenkara Summit.

WHERE TO FISH:
More information will be posted soon. But, Boulder Creek runs right through town and up Boulder Canyon with several miles of excellent fishing and great access. 10 minutes south of town there is South Boulder Creek, which goes up into Eldorado Canyon State Park. South Boulder Creek can also be accessed by going up Flagstaff road to Walker Ranch and other areas. 30 minutes North of Boulder visitors can access multiple forks of the St. Vrain river, all with great fishing and easy access. And, 1 hour away there is Estes Park with the Big Thompson, and Rocky Mountain National Park with a variety of streams.
Visitors will need a valid fishing license. These may be purchased here: https://www2.co.wildlifelicense.com/start.php
