Organizer Frank Anderson reported to The Bowie News the Jim Bowie Days bass tournament has been cancelled.
The event was originally scheduled for 6 a.m. on June 19, but it won’t take place now.
The event – which is typically seen as the introduction to Jim Bowie Day week – was cancelled on account due to Amon G. Carter Lake’s levels and other concerns.
This marks the third straight year no bass tournament will take place, based on not enough or simply too much water.
