College Fishing National Championship Qualifiers

College Fishing National Championship Qualifiers

The 2019 YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship is presented by Lowrance and goes down on the Potomac River in Marbury, Md., June 4-6. In 2018, teams from around the country qualified for the championship from the Central, Southern, Northern, Southeastern and Western conferences as well as the annual College Fishing Open, and the time has come to crown a champion. At stake is the title of National Champion as well as a Ranger Z175 with a 115-hp outboard. Additionally, both anglers on the winning team qualify for the FLW Cup this August on Lake Hamilton.
