Clash of the Titans

No events scheduled for 2016


This is an invitational event where the Top 10 fisherman fly and or conventional from the open class events will be invited to show who the real BIG FISH CHALLENGE champion is. There is no charge for those invited to participate.


Competitors are invited from their results and fishing skills displayed from the open class Provo, Green and Weber rivers. Beyond who catches the biggest fish on the open class events judges will be looking for additional factors i.e. number of fish caught, catch size consistency and good sportsmanship.

  • The controller must remove the hook, revive the fish and release it, taking care not to damage the fish.
  • If a competitor decides that a fish is ineligible or is undersized, he is not required to net it but must release it in the water, taking care not to cause it any damage, and ideally without touching it.

Scoring
  • Your will be scored from the three biggest fish caught by a single particiapant.
  • Each fish 12" or greater is worth 100 point plus 10 points per 1/4 inch length over 12"; the recorded length will be rounded up to the next complete 1/4 inch for scoring purposes.
  • The length of a fish which is under the eligible size will not be rounded up, so such a fish will not be scored.
  • If a competitor wishes a fish to score, they must land it in a net and pass the fish in the net to the controller for measurement and recording. If the competitor is in the water they will have to carry the netted fish to the controller that is standing on dry ground.
  • For measuring purposes, the length will be from the tip of the nose to the tail (see How to Measure a Fish below). Each controller will be provided with a Hawg Trough for measuring.
  • Only fish hooked in the mouth area, i.e. in front of the rear edge of the gill cover, will be eligible.
  • In the event of the loss of a fish by a controller before measurement, the competitor will be awarded the average of the points for all valid fish taken within that scoring session.
