FLW College Fishing Southern Conference event set for Lake Dardanelle

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (FLWCF) – FLW College Fishing is headed to Lake Dardanelle July 26 for the final regular-season stop in the Southern Conference. Up to 50 college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the Southern Conference Invitational tournament.

“We’ve had quite a bit of rain lately so there will definitely be a shallow and a deep bite,” said 3M ScotchBlue Tape pro Ray Scheide of Dover, Ark., a six-time Forrest Wood Cup qualifier. “The lake is fishing as good or better than it ever has and it is really in good shape.”

Scheide said that college anglers would be able to find fish shallow around milfoil as well as around the lake’s offshore ledges.
