The Greater Cedar Creek Lake community will host the 32nd annual KCKL Big Bass Tournament Saturday, March 28-29.

Cedar Creek is located approximately 60 miles southeast of Dallas. Tournament headquarters will be at Log Cabin City Park located between Clear and Caney Creek bridges, a quarter-mile east of the intersection of Highway 198 and Highway 3054.

The tournament offers over 115 cash prizes for big bass weighed  each hour and to the winners in the overall final standings of the event.

Sanctioned by the Texas Conservation Society, the tournament meets conservation objectives by returning the fish back into the lake under the “Live Release Program.”

This event has also supported regional fisheries enhancement efforts with cash contributions to fishery conservation causes.

Past recipients have included Texas Black Bass Unlimited and Athens Freshwater Fisheries Center.

Entry fee is $85 per day. Youth entry fees (under 16 years old) are discounted to $10 per day even though Youth contestants are fully eligible for all tournament prizes.

In fact, three years ago the tournament was won by a youth angler.

Contestants may enter by mail or at the lake.
