I’ve heard that the weigh-in for the April FLW bass tournament at Roosevelt Lake is to be held at the Walmart parking lot in Payson.
If this is true, lots of bass will die since they’ll never survive the two-hour-long vehicle rides with elevation changes of some 3,000 feet.
Spending additional time in a hot parking lot won’t help much, either.
Surely the FLW people must have overlooked this situation.
Our Roosevelt fishery is a very valuable area resource and should be treated with the respect it deserves. Let’s have that weigh-in at lakeside and get those bass back in the water ASAP.
