The Walmart FLW Fishing Tour is hitting Grand Lake and Grove right now, with events from June 6 to June 9. And with the legendary Jimmy Houston on the leaderboad…well, it should be an awesome weekend.
The fishing itself is already under way, and after 1 day it’s a couple of local Oklahoma boys at the top of the leaderboard. Leading after Day 1 is Park Hill’s Jason Christie, but coming in a close second, only 5 oz behind, is Oklahoma fishing legend and TV personality Jimmy Houston!
The fishing is sure to be exciting the next few days as the anglers take off from the Wolf Creek Park at 963 N. 16th St in Grove.
Besides the actual fishing going on, you can also check out the weigh-ins and much more at the FLW Outdoors Expo at the Walmart in Grove on Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 4. The weigh-ins on Saturday and Sunday are at 4pm.
The Expo includes Ranger boat simulators, the opportunity to interact with professional anglers, enjoy interactive games, activities and giveaways provided by sponsors, and fans can learn more about the sport of fishing and other outdoor activities. All activities are free and open to the public. Also on Sunday, country music artist Dylan Scott will perform a free live concert on the Walmart weigh-in stage at 3 p.m.
All of this great action just highlights how great Grand Lake is for fishing and, with all the improvements in Grove, how well it’s set up to host these big fishing events that bring anglers from all over the country to Grand Lake.
