Smith Mountain Lake Fishing
CELEBRATION, Fla. — Nearly halfway through the 2007 Bassmaster Elite Series season, the sixth event — the Blue Ridge Brawl presented by Advance Auto Parts scheduled for June 7-10 at Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta, Va. — represents a make-or-break tournament for anglers looking to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic and contend in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings.
As the season reaches a turning point, anglers jockeying for position will be looking for top finishes at Smith Mountain, a scenic 20,600-acre lake that is 40 miles long and features more than 500 miles of shoreline nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of rural southwestern Virginia.
The 40-year-old impoundment was created for power generation with the damming of the Blackwater and Roanoke rivers. Tournament coverage from the event will be featured at 9 a.m. ET June 16 on ESPN2.
