High School Fishing World Finals

The High School World Fishing Finals is centered on a low-cost family vacation full of fun where high school anglers are the stars of the show. High school anglers and their families will attend from across the nation.

Anglers must also meet minimum GPA requirements.  One of the tie breakers, should it be needed, is defined by the team’s collective grade point average. The event culminates on Saturday, July 21 at Dardanelle State Park with a full day of activities open to the public, including games, rides, Cabela’s Gift card prizes and Ranger boat test rides!

LIVE! All 3 days weigh-ins will be streamed LIVE on the internet on www.highschoolfishing.org  and at www.ihigh.com! Tell your friends and family back home to tune in! The event is also taped for television broadcast.
