CLINTON — Hank Weldon has heard about the reputation of Clinton Lake as a top place for bass fishing. He’s eager to see if that expectation for the lake holds true when a series of tournaments are held there early next month. The Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Midwestern Regional is slated for June 2-4 with portions of it being recorded to be televised at a later date on ESPNU, Weldon said.
In addition, the Costa Bassmaster High School Midwestern Open will provide an opportunity Sunday, June 5 for younger fishing teams to compete. “We were in Springfield last year and kept hearing about Clinton Lake,” said Weldon, the tournament manager. “We’re excited to combine two events into one. Clinton is one of the most sought after lakes around.”
