The IHSA announced that the postponed Bass Fishing State Finals will be held on May 31-June 1 at Carlyle Lake. The tournament had originally been set for May 3-4, but was postponed due to high water levels at Carlyle Lake.
“We share in the frustration of the qualifying anglers who want to get out and fish,” said IHSA Associate Executive Director Kurt Gibson. “However, we need to make sure that Carlyle Lake has the opportunity to properly lower its water levels before we conduct our state championship. We are confident that, in looking at both the long range weather models and also speaking with the Corps of Engineers, water levels will have dropped sufficiently by the end of the month and enable us to host the state finals at one of our state’s premier fishing venues.”
Indian Creek and Sycamore had boats qualify for the state finals.
