    The Buchanan Bass Battle is an annual event in the inland Pacific Northwest. It features a competition between the three clubs in the area, the Inland Empire Bass Club (Spokane), Idaho Panhandle Bass Anglers (CDA area) and the Spokane Bass Club. The idea came about after the unfortunate passing of bass angler Hardy Buchanan. He wanted all of the local clubs to get to know each other better and have an annual competition to bring everyone together.


    Now, the three clubs run the event and the Buchanan family helps to run the event each year. It is a great event with an awesome raffle and plenty of fun between everyone. The tournament is an average finish of the clubs.

    This year the event was hosted by Inland Empire and they chose Long Lake as the venue. It was tough fishing, but that didn't stop everyone from having a great time.

    The results were:
    Spokane Bass Club 9.46lb avg.
    Idaho PBA: 9.30lb avg.
    IEBC: 6.87lb avg.


    Spokane Bass Club is the winner for the year and gets this plaque for the year. SBC will also host and select the next event in 2017 and it should be another great tournament.

    Tips: The largemouth restriction was removed for 2015 by the State of Washington. Anglers could bring in 5 largemouth and many did that. There were many nice smallmouth weighed in too. The first place finishers had (5) largemouth on Day 1 with 29.05-pounds, including that big fish of the tournament at 7.92-pounds.

    Water Temp: Variable, high

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Weather: Sunny, clear skies
    Lake Level: 1,536 ft (full pool)\Best Depths: Early morning, focus on shallow flats or shallow docks. When the sun rises, target breaks near deeper docks or points with large rock boulders
    Dropshot undoubtedly catches numbers, but jigs and larger worms tend to pull quality sized fish. A 4.5-inch Roboworm or minnow imitation in watermelon is best producing color.
    Big Bass: Early morning, focus on shallow flats or shallow docks. When the sun rises, target breaks near deeper docks or points with large rock boulders09/07/2014 - Largemouth - 28.06
    Several 5-6 pound largemouth and 3-4 pound smallmouth
