2019 Tournament Information

Simmons Bank Big Bass Bonanza Tournament Update - June 7, 2019

We know everyone is asking about the status of the tournament and we’d like to give you an update.

Due to the current historic river flooding, it's clear that the tournament cannot go off as planned and must be postponed to a later date after June 28-30th.

We’ve been monitoring the situation and are in touch with Army Corps of Engineers as they assess the flooding along the river.

Our primary concern at this point is for everyone affected by the flood and what is in the best interest of our participants.

As the water begins to recede and we have a clearer picture of any damage to our weigh-in sites, we’ll announce new tournament dates and sites (if needed). At that time, we will provide refund information for those unable to fish the new dates.

We also want to express our gratitude to the men and women who are on the front lines helping to keep everyone safe.

As we make decisions, we’ll post updates to our website and social media channels. We know this is not the best news, and we do appreciate your patience.

This is our 30th anniversary on the Arkansas River and we are planning a great tournament for you!

Can you catch the $50,000 bass?

On-Line Registration will re-open soon
