The Colorado fishing community lost a true friend in Tim Stinebeck on February 3, 2018. Tim was involved in the lives of numerous people that shared the love of bass fishing as he did. His past memberships in local fishing clubs such as the Springs Bassmasters and Pikes Peak Bassmasters, gave him the opportunity to create great friendships over the years. When he wasn't fishing for bass, Tim could be found chasing wipers on Lake Pueblo with his wife Beverly. Tim will be missed tremendously by all that knew him.
The Springs Bassmasters was formed in 1994, originally affiliated with the Bass Anglers Sportsman's Society. Over the years we have also become an affiliated club with both, The Bass Federation (TBF), and Fishing League Worldwide (FLW), making Springs Bassmasters a multi affiliated fishing club.
We are a club interested in not only providing friendly competition but understand the need for conserving our natural resources for future generations. Come and check us out.
