by Stephanie Wilkerson

Waterwood, Lake Liviningston
The aftermath of Tropical Depression Allison kept the number of anglers sparse, which made this a "good point tournament", but for those who did survive the weather they were blessed with warm temperatures, moderate winds and a bright sunny day to fish the tournament. The lake was higher than usual due to all the rain, but the fish were still biting for those who braved the waters and most were pleased with their finishing. The championship for this tournament trail with be held in November on Lake Amistad
