Fishing


$10,000 For Fish!!

Crowley Lake Fish Camp and Sierra Drifters Guide Service teamed up to hold the First Annual Crowley Lake Stillwater Classic. The event took place over the past week and the result was $10,000 to buy fish for Crowley Lake. The 119 tournament registrants overwhelmingly voted on Browns for the lake!

The LORD OF THE FLY in 2007 has been crowned!  Mammoth local JASON FAZIO edged out Frank Murata by just one fish and won the individual category with 19 points.  Jason was handed $1500.00 in cash for his stellar performance under extreme duress due to visual and verbal distractions by an unnamed judge boat.  Way to stay focused Jason!

Frank received $500.00 for being runner up. Both contestants fished the North Arm and primarily used the still water nymphing technique to hook up.

Here is how the Still Water Classic Works

Points are scored by successfully hooking then netting, or bringing your hand to the leader’s end and releasing the fish.

All species of fish in Crowley are eligible.

Each successfully caught and released fish will receive one point. Each contestant or team shall be issued a whistle and numbered flag.

When a contestant successfully hooks a fish they shall use the whistle to insure that a judge has witnessed the hook up.

Judges will observe the contestant until he or she successfully nets or releases the fish.  The contestant will then display their individually numbered flag and the judge boat will acknowledge a score by sounding an audible horn.

This is strictly a catch and release tournament and contestants will not be scored points for fish that are removed from the water for measuring, weighing, or hook removal.

Length or weight of the fish is NOT important.

A 10 inch fish will be scored as much as a 24 inch fish. Fish that are netted and removed totally from the water and into a boat or dry tube apron will NOT be scored by the judge.

Judge boats will be “roving” to inform contestants of fish that are not scored due to “long distance releases” or an improper release. 

Nets must be of smooth nylon or rubber materials. Monofilament nets severely damage the fish’s skin and fins and will not be allowed in the event.

You may successfully release a fish by dislodging the barbless hook with the use of pliers or other hook dislodging tools without putting a fish into a net. However, the body of the fish must remain in the water throughout the process in order to be scored.
