 Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) announced today that the YETI FLW College Fishing tournament scheduled for Fort Gibson Lake on Saturday, May 6 has been rescheduled for Oct. 14, 2017 due to the flooding and dangerous conditions currently wreaking havoc in the Ozark region.


All previously published information regarding takeoff and weigh-in locations remains unchanged.


Anglers will take off and weigh in at Taylors Ferry North Recreation Area in Wagoner, at 7:30 a.m. CDT Saturday, Oct. 14. Weigh-in will be held at the launch ramp beginning at 3 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public. The event is hosted by the Wagoner Area Chamber of Commerce.
Schools are allowed to register up until the morning of the tournament. Entries may be made either by phone or at FLWFishing.com.


FLW College Fishing teams compete in three regular-season qualifying tournaments in one of five conferences – Central, Northern, Southern, Southeastern and Western. The top ten teams from each division’s three regular-season tournaments and the top 20 teams from the annual FLW College Fishing Open will advance to the 2018 FLW College Fishing National Championship. Additional teams will qualify for the National Championship if the field size in regular-season events exceeds 100 boats.


College Fishing is free to enter. All participants must be registered, full-time students at a college, university or community college and members of a college fishing club that is recognized by their school.
