The IHSA has announced that the state's Bass Fishing State Final Tournament, scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Carlyle Lake in Carlyle, has been postponed because of potentially dangerous water levels. It will be rescheduled to unfold in Carlyle later this spring.

The IHSA board of directors made the decision to postpone the finals based upon discussions with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers who oversee Carlyle Lake.

"We could not hold the tournament as scheduled on May 3-4 due to safety concerns," said IHSA associate director and bass fishing administrator Kurt Gibson. "We want to make a decision on the new state final date as soon as possible so that Carlyle and the qualifying schools can plan accordingly. Yet, we also need to exercise a certain level of patience, as our colleagues in Carlyle predict and monitor how the lake will drain over the coming days."

The IHSA postponed the tournament in 2011 when the Carlyle area was hit with storms that produced 10 inches of rain in a little over a week. The tournament was contested during the third week of June (17-18) in 2011.
