This article presents information on the 5th Paralyzed Veterans of America Bass Tour Grand National Championship, which took place on October 2, 2005 near Muskogee, Oklahoma. The Arkansas River begins high in Colorado's Rocky Mountains, flowing through the breath-taking Royal Gorge on its 1,450-mile journey to the mighty Mississippi River. With the threat of Hurricane Rita's reportedly dropping more than 20 inches of rain in northeastern Oklahoma, the Corps of Engineers decided to dump some water out of the pools in anticipation of the forecasted rain, but Rita changed course. When the anglers started their prefishing, they found a current, as water was being forced downstream. However, on tournament days the water stopped moving, and the anglers quickly discovered the fish they had found earlier had changed position.
