Mission: The mission of Denver Bassmasters Conservation is to preserve and enhance our waterways for future generations to use and enjoy, and educate fishermen on water quality, invasive aquatic species, fish care, and habitat creation and preservation. Denver Bassmasters works closely with Colorado Bass Nation, B.A.S.S., Conservation, public and private landowners, and wildlife agencies on habitat creation projects in lakes throughout Colorado. Other conservation initiatives of Denver Bassmasters include lake and river trash cleanup events and line & lure recycling programs. Please reach out to Justin Apfel at or         757-817-4267 if you would like to get involved with volunteer conservation efforts through Denver Bassmasters. 

Recycling initiative: Denver Bassmasters is committed to keeping used fishing line, spools, and lures out of landfills, and more importantly our waterways. We work with recycling companies to repurpose these product into new fishing line, lures, and other plastic polymer products. Denver Bassmasters collects these items during club tournaments and meetings and ships them off to companies such as Berkley and the Boat US Foundation for recycling.

CLEAN UP at Quincy Reservoir 7/23/23   SIGN UP

I am happy to announce DBM will be hosting a shoreline cleanup event at Quincy Reservoir on Sunday, July 23rd from 7:30 am to 11:30 am. We are requesting volunteers to help collect trash around the shoreline. DBM will provide trash bags, gloves, and other trash pick-up tools. We will also have a scale on site to weigh the trash collected. We will be recording weights at all future cleanup events to keep track of how much trash the club is removing from our local waterbodies. 

This is intended to be a family event so please bring spouses, kids, and friends along; the more the merrier. We will have tables set up to do some marketing for the adult club and juniors program so we will need volunteers to staff those tables as well.
