OUTDOORS: Jim Bowie Days bass tournament is off

Bass is a plentiful fish at both Amon Carter and Nocona Lake, where Texans can angle for free without a fishing license this Saturday. However, low lake levels may curtail such activities during the coming weekend. (Photo by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department)

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.
