Clarkson To Host Stop On Bassmaster College SeriesPosted: Updated:
Hundreds of collegiate anglers will bring their boats and fishing gear to the north country next summer to take part in the Northeast Regional Competition in the 2019 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series presented by Bass Pro Shops.
Clarkson announced the event in a news release Wednesday morning.
The competition will take place on the St. Lawrence River in Waddington and at Clarkson University on June 18-21.
The events are open to collegiate anglers from across the country and the public is welcome to participate in some of the activities. Clarkson University is hosting the tournament, with events both in Waddington and Potsdam.
The Bassmasters Elite Series already has a home in Waddington during August.
There will be three other collegiate tours held in 2019 in North Carolina, Alabama, and Arkansas. The St. Lawrence River tour is the final one of the year before the college championships in July.
