34th Annual Tenmile Open

This year's Tenmile Open Tournament is almost here!  We are all working diligently to get everything in order for our big tournament.  We have reports that plans are in the works to hopefully start repairs on the county ramp on Monday July 27th.  The ramps are still usable, but use extreme caution and take it slow.  We will all need to plan to need a little extra time when launching and loading our boats.  We have a huge pile of stuff for this year's raffle so bring extra cash for tickets and help support our local high school graduates!  The schedule is posted below and there will potentially be two or three flights for blast off and weigh in, depending on the total number of boats.  Cabela's is sponsoring us again this year and we are very appreciative for their involvement in one of the best tournaments in Oregon!  Don't forget to check your route for potential road construction and hazards at

Just one quick reminder for all of the competitors.  The prefishing period will close when the sun goes down on Sunday July 26th.  Tenmile lakes will then be closed for prefishing until the day of the tournament, Saturday August 1st.

Club Tournament in August

Just a quick reminder to those who were not at the Siltcoos Lake tournament.  Our tournament scheduled for August 15th on Cottage Grove Reservoir has been changed to Tahkenitch Lake.  Apparently, the water level at Cottage Grove is horrible right now and only going to get worse.  We took a vote at the Siltcoos tournament and it was unanimous.

Also, just a quick heads up about the upcoming Tenmile Open.  We are still going to have our annual Tenmile Open Tournament.  The water level at Tenmile Lakes is low, so please use caution when launching your boat.  Also be aware the channel is very shallow and you will need to raise your motor in order to prevent from hitting bottom.  Take extra caution at Channel Marker #9 as there is some wood debris that is very shallow.  We look forward to seeing everyone for the Tenmile Open this year and remember the off limits period for competitors starts after the sun goes down on July 26th, 2015.
