We hope to see the AOY used as a spring board for species specialists to share knowledge and for the generalist to be able to learn more about specific species and where/how to fish for them from experienced anglers.

All entries must be caught without aid from anyone else and using methods deemed legal according to the body of water from which they are caught.

2. Photographic evidence of fish size (total length) against a Hawg trough measuring device. Hawg Troughs must be inspected by Tournament staff to insure compliance YOU CAN SEND A PHOTO OF YOUR MEASURING DEVICE WITH SOMETHING OF A KNOWN LENGTH (i.e. credit card, library card etc) to verify it. Photographs must be clear, with measurements easily read. It is recommended to use a sharpie on measuring devices that are not clearly marked. All entries must be rounded down to the nearest quarter inch. The ENTIRE fish must show on the measuring device in at least 1 picture. Missing portions of the head or tail will result in a disqualification of the fish. Any fish that has the appearance of possibly being not qualified for entry (such as the appearance of an adipose fin from a non native retention body of water) will be disqualified. Participants are responsible for ensuring the pictures are of sufficient quality to demonstrate the legality of the catch as defined by the laws of the respective state. Fish may NOT be gutted, have their throat cut or ripped through, or manipulated in any way prior to photographs being taken. Cutting of gills is permitted. Tails may be pressed together or tilted. All entries this year will have admin approval before appearing as official entries. There may be a few days lag between the time you post a picture and the time it appears on the site.

4. All fish entered must be caught within the boundaries of the tournament which are northern california above the 39th parallel and the state of Oregon with the ADDITION of Pyramid Lake. Fish caught from waterways with restricted access to the public, such as members only or private waterways or aquaculture operations, are not allowed.
