EWU bass fishing duo heads to Georgia next month for collegiate championships

On Aug. 1-3, the Eastern Washington University Sportsman’s Club will be participating at the B.A.S.S. Collegiate National Championship on Lake Chatuge in Georgia.

The team duo of Nick Barr of Lacey and Jarred Walker of Moses Lake are the first team from the state and Eastern Washington University to qualify in the national championship.

The pair qualified by finishing in the Top-10 at the B.A.S.S. College Western Regional Championship at Clear Lake in California on April 6-8.

Top finishers in the national championship have a chance to advance into the professional national championship – the 2014 Bassmaster Classic – where the top prizes exceed $500,000.

Barr is the founder of the Eastern Washington University Sportsman’s Club in 2010, and has more than 60 members.

The team participates on the FLW and B.A.S.S. College fishing circuits, and conducts habitat enhancement and community service projects.
