Bass Pro Shops PAA Tournament Series,
Arkansas River, Sept. 10-15

The 2012 Bass Pro Shops PAA Tournament Series presented by Carrot Stix wraps up the season on the winding Arkansas River in Muskogee, Oklahoma.

The tour’s top individual honor, the PAA Angler of the Year title, will be determined on a new venue when the PAA Tournament Series heads to the Arkansas River. The legendary river will provide the PAA pros and co-anglers a challenging summertime test of their skills to wrap up the season.

The Arkansas River winds through four states from its headwaters in Colorado and is one of the major tributaries of the Mississippi River. The river stretches 1,469 miles through Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
