The big season opener for the 2019 NorCal Trout Angler's Challenge series - presented by Gone Fishin' Marine, is less than ONE MONTH away, and San Pablo Dam, in El Sobrante, will again be the site of its 7th exciting season.

Just about everyone caught limits at last year’s San Pablo season opener!

But as a brand new season begins on Feb 2nd at San Pablo Dam, all “stats” will be set to zero, and all "tale of glory" will fade as EVERYONE participating will have a chance at winning some great cash, prizes, and get a shot at participating in the big year-end tournament of champions event.

And for those of you that have never fished an NTAC event, or don’t know what the NTAC is all about - here’s the scoop:

The NTAC is what we call the “every man’s” or “every families” trout fishing event as each event offers up a TON of cash to win, along with gear and other goodies - all for very low entry fee of just $20 dollars.

And get 15 and under fish free!

Kids are a BIG part of NTAC fun!

As if that's not enough, top finishers throughout the year are invited to participate in the season ending "Tournament of Champions" shootout - presented by Gone Fishin' Marine, where the overall winner takes home a boat, motor and trailer package!

Because Angler’s Press Outdoors recognizes the financial challenges that many anglers face these days - especially those raising families, this series has been structured in a manner that will allow anglers - on a budget, to still be able to enjoy the thrill of competition.

Along these same lines, the dates and destinations for all NTAC tournaments were given special consideration to insure that the time of the year and venue set the stage for a level playing field for both boaters and bank anglers.

In other words, the tournaments are held at certain destinations at certain times of the year when bank bound dough slingers and float tube trollers have just as much chance of winning the tournament as a guy equipped with a 25 foot aluminum sled decked out with downriggers and the latest electronics.

So If you love trout fishing and love competition, come on out and enjoy one or more NTAC events – beginning with our kick-off event at San Pablo on Feb 2nd.

It won’t break the bank, you’ll have lots of fun, and you might just take home a cool prize or a big wad of cash!

Registration for all event is going on now so please visit to or call (916) 768-0938 to get set up.

See you there!
