Fishing will start on Wright Patman Lake on Thursday, April 20 and continue through Saturday, April 22. The anglers will launch at Sportsmans Cove each morning. You can be a part of the weigh-ins that will happen at the Spring Lake Park Splash Pad each day at 3:30 PM.

The tournament made a stop here back in 2021 and it was a huge success. But there is a big change this year as stated on the NPFL Facebook page;

We are returning around the same time we fished in 2021, but there is one significant difference. Last time, the winner received $50k, but this year, the winner will receive $100k!

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
