As the name implies, all legal game fish species that swim in Maine waters are eligible for qualifying points in this unique tournament. The grand prize package will be awarded to the team or solo angler that catches, photos, and releases the most variety of fish species over the weekend. Additional winning categories for largest catches of brook trout, landlocked salmon, striped bass, and smallmouth bass.
The tournament headquarters are at Oxbow Beer Garden in Oxford, Maine, conveniently located within 45 minutes of the salty coast and surrounded by pristine lakes, rivers, ponds, and streams that contain almost all of Maine’s fish species.
All proceeds generated by tournament entries will be donated to American Saltwater Guides Association.
This tournament is run largely on the honor system and is fly fishing only. Remember, karma! All fishing must be done within the state of Maine. All catches must be recorded on smartphone or digital camera and released safely. All fish must be caught on a fly, using fly rod and reel. Photos should be taken with the provided measuring tape and tournament token (given at check-in).
Please follow proper fish handling and catch & release techniques. We strongly encourage anglers to review and utilize the Keep Fish Wet Principles.
For the All Species categories, total number of species caught determines the winner. For the comprehensive list of qualifying species, see below. Each team or angler may also include up to two ‘Wildcard’ species in their scorecard (these are other species not included in the Qualifying Species List). In the event of a tie, total number of inches will be tallied. Note that no preference or weight is given to any species in this category.
21+ unless accompanied by a guardian
All proceeds generated by tournament entries will be donated to Maine conservation efforts.
All anglers must obey Maine fishing laws to participate
