Federation Nation event this week in Connecticut

Candlewood Lake near Danbury, Conn., this week is hosting the final divisional of the season for the BASS Federation Nation.

Anglers hit Candlewood on Monday for their first practice day. The competition will begin Wednesday and run through Friday out of Danbury Town Park. Takeoff is set for 6 a.m., and weigh-ins will begin at 2:30 p.m. The public is invited to watch; it’s free.

On the final day, Junior Bassmaster competitors will join the adults who qualify. The young anglers will compete among themselves for the right to advance to the Bassmaster Junior World Championship.

The adults are vying for entries in the Oct. 27-29 Bass Federation Nation Championship presented by Yamaha and Skeeter Boats on the Red River out of Shreveport-Bossier City, La. The ultimate stop is the 2011 Bassmaster Classic, for which six Federation anglers will qualify.
