Toledo Bend Lake Association is pleased to announce that Linda Boren has been commissioned to paint the 2019 Bass Unlimited Poster.

She served on the Zwolle Poster Committee and was the 2009 poster artist for the Zwolle Tamale Fiesta. Ms. Boren was a Tourist Counselor for SRA, where she was named as a Pelican State Official Ambassador for retirees and promoted Louisiana as a preferred choice for retirement. She designed and painted four of the original large fiberglass fish located around the Parish and has recently refurbished her “Lunker” fish located at the SRA office on Highway 6.

High-speed crash claims life of Owens

Earlier today, a single vehicle crash killed a teenager from Robeline.  The teenager was wearing a seat belt, but excessive speed is considered a factor.

Troopers responded to the crash around 2 p.m., which occurred on Highway 485, north of Robeline.  The crash involved a 2007 GMC pickup, driven by John Hunter Owens, 17.  Initially, the GMC was on Highway 6 when a Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy observed Owens commit a traffic violation.  The deputy turned around, with the intent to stop the vehicle, but Owens turned northbound on Highway 485 and sped off.  The deputy lost sight of the vehicle and stopped pursuing.  A short time later, the deputy located the crashed vehicle.

Evidence at the scene indicated that Owens lost control, at a high rate of speed, and exited the left side of the roadway.  After exiting the roadway, the vehicle collided with several trees.

Darold Gleason takes big win at Bassmaster Open

Darold Gleason of Many won the 2019

BassPro.com
Central Open on Toledo Bend with a two-day total weight of 40 pounds, 2 ounces.

A big shift in weather conditions and the kindness of a fellow competitor opened the door for local favorite Darold Gleason to show off his home lake’s potential with a 25-pound, 3-ounce catch that yielded a tournament total of 40-2 and delivered a long-awaited win at the Basspro.com Bassmaster Central Open on Toledo Bend Reservoir.

After fierce thunderstorms cancelled Thursday’s scheduled second day of competition, the full field competed in today’s final round. Although the forecast called for more storms, Toledo Bend saw a foggy and relatively calm day that contrasted starkly with the more challenging conditions the Many angler faced on Day 1.

“This is probably the best day of tournament fishing I’ve had out here,” said Gleason, who runs South Toledo Bend Guide Service. “Toledo Bend is one of the best lakes in the country. It’s fishing kind of tough right now with these cold conditions, but it is chock full of big ones.”
