YETI FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Event Presented by Bass Pro Shops Set for Chautauqua Lake

YETI FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Event Presented by Bass Pro Shops Set for Chautauqua Lake

BEMUS POINT, N.Y. – YETI FLW College Fishing is headed to Chautauqua Lake July 22 for the second of three regular-season stops in the Northern Conference. The tournament, presented by Bass Pro Shops, will feature college fishing clubs casting for $2,000 and an invitation to compete in the 2018 College Fishing National Championship.

“I think it’s going to take 16 or 17 pounds to win this event,” said Derek Horner, a Penn State University angler who has finished in the top five – including a win last year – in each of the last two FLW College Fishing visits to Chautauqua Lake. “It’s taken a little less to win on Chautauqua Lake in recent tournaments, but I think some teams are really going to catch them this year.”

Horner said he expects there to be three dominant patterns in play during this tournament.

“The first thing that comes to mind for Chautauqua Lake is fishing docks,” said Horner. “I think we’ll see a lot of teams picking them apart with a Texas-rigged worm or a jig with a craw trailer. I also see a lot of anglers targeting staging bass along grass lines with ChatterBaits and spinnerbaits. If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with throwing a frog near lily pads.”

Horner said that the algae bloom may also dictate where anglers choose to fish.

“This time of year, bass tend to congregate where algae is thickest,” said Horner. “On the south end of the lake it tends to be thicker, but if there’s a strong south wind competitors will have to stay up north where the water is deeper. Those teams will likely focus on smallmouth that are staging near submerged rocks.”

Competitors will take off from Long Point State Park, located at 4459 Route 430 in Bemus Point, at 6:30 a.m. EDT Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the park beginning at 2:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.

Schools are allowed to register up until the morning of the tournament. Entries may be made either by phone or at CollegeFishing.com.
