TAHLEQUAH, Oklahoma - The 2018 Bassmaster College Series National Championship will take place on Lake Tenkiller.

The college fishing tournament will be hosted by the city of Tahlequah on Lake Tenkiller July 19-21, 2018. While the anglers spend the day on the water, the weigh-ins and other events will be held at Northeastern State University.

The national championship weigh-ins are expected to bring in up to 1,500 spectators.

One college angler will earn a spot in the biggest tournament in bass fishing: the Bassmaster Classic (which Tulsa/Grand Lake have hosted twice).

The tournament week will eventually air on ESPNU, putting Tahlequah and Tenkiller on the national stage.
