Two young fishermen are headed to represent the state of Arkansas and looking to “school” their competition in the upcoming National Junior Championship. Eli Kluthe and Levi Brown of Waldron, Arkansas will travel to Mosquito Creek Lake in Warren, Ohio to fish against some of the best youth anglers in the country for the July 25th – August 1st tournament. The duo is “hooked” on success after acquiring the title of Arkansas Junior State Champions on June 21st at Lake Millwood which is located just outside of Ashdown.
“I am just extremely happy that we won the state championship and excited to move on to the National tournament in Ohio,” Levi Brown stated with enthusiasm. Eli Kluthe shared the same positive intensity by saying, “I am very excited to have the chance to represent the state of Arkansas and our Waldron Waterdogs at the National level after winning the State championship. I would like to thank all of the members of our team that worked hard for us and continues to work hard to make all of this possible.” The Resident Press staff and coverage area are very proud of these two young men and can’t “bait” for them to bring home the gold!!
