High water levels at Carlyle Lake have forced the Illinois High School Association to postpone the State Final Bass Fishing Tournament. The event was scheduled to be held May 19th and 20th, but will now be pushed to later this spring.
This marks the 9th year for the IHSA state tournament series in bass fishing says the organization’s Kurt Gibson.
The IHSA Board of Directors made the decision to postpone the finals based upon discussions with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The IHSA was also forced to postpone the state final tournament in 2011 and 2013 due to high water levels.
