2022 Summer League | Final Results

We wrapped up the 2022 Summer League last weekend. The competitors logged their results over 6 weeks of varied conditions. The weather and water conditions varied greatly week to week. The overall results were slightly lower versus previous season and it is felt that this was a direct result of difficulty (windy) weather conditions seemingly every week.

That being said the anglers made the best of it and just about every one of them at some point put up some good numbers.

And the on to the winners of the 2022 Reno Fly Summer League

We want to thank all of the competitors that came out. We truly hope you had as much fun as we did to put it on. We will announce our Fall League towards the end of summer so please keep an eye out to get involved.

Until then have a great summer and we look forward to seeing past and new competitors this Fall.

Summer League – Week 3 Results, Big Fish and Overall Standings

Week 3 of our Summer League was productive. Most anglers experienced an increase in numbers and overall size. This was anticipated as we go deeper into the summer league season. In part from the water conditions becoming prime but also the competitors are settling in and are being more efficient with their time and efforts.

The first 2 weeks weren’t super productive for the group so we still have a lot of opportunity for movement on the leaderboard.

Summer League – Week 1 Results

Our Summer League (Week 1) kicked off last Saturday with an almost full field of anglers. Tough conditions were experienced by everyone with high(ish) water and windy conditions. Water flow in downtown Reno was 1,000 cfs. While the water was high it was mostly clear and competitors found a few fish.

This was just the start and we anticipate water conditions to improve in the coming weeks.

Remember that drop-in competitors are welcome. Sign ups are at 8:00 on Saturday mornings here at the shop.

Summer League 2022 Registration Open | Competition May 7-June 11

Excited to announce registration has opened for our 2022 Summer Fly Fishing League!

This will be our 7th edition of the league and it continues to grow with new and returning anglers. The most consistent feedback we get from competitors is how surprised they are with the amount of fun and community that the they experience. Not to mention having the chance to improve your skills and meet new anglers each and every week!

Competition starts May 7th and runs for 6 consecutive Saturdays until June 11th. We anticipate some periods of high water during this season. We will run the comp unless it is deemed unsafe and or compromising to the angler.

Summer League will meet Saturday mornings at the Reno Fly Shop at 8:00 am. Angler pairings will be selected at random each week, the pairings will then be assigned randomized beats by drawing. We found this approach makes each week a new and exciting experience.

If you are unfamiliar with the League. We assemble up to 20 anglers on Saturday mornings. Randomly draw pairings then randomly assign beats to those pairings. From there the anglers will find their beats determine who goes first and second. Each angler will have 1 hour to catch as many trout as they can and record the length of each fish over 8 inches. Total number of inches caught will go to that anglers weekly total. While one angler is fishing the second angler is there to assist in measuring fish and record length of fish caught. 15 minutes is allowed between heats to allow the second angler the chance to get rigged and ready. Following the two 1 hour heats the pairing returns to the Reno Fly Shop to record results.

The Summer league will have 10 beats with available spots for 20 anglers. Pre-registration fee is $50, which will give you priority access to all 6 Saturdays. If you can’t commit to all of the days, no sweat, drop-ins are accepted on a first-come/first-serve basis and are charged $12/day if you get in. There will be a prize purse for the season’s final podium.

Please call or stop by the shop to pre-register for this season.

Rules are unchanged from previous seasons. Please review these for how things work and what to expect. We will review these each week for new and returning anglers.

Here are some photos from previous seasons.

Reno Fly Shop 2021 Summer League Final Results

The 2021 Reno Fly Shop Summer League can be summarized with the saying, “it is never over until it is over” or maybe “it is never too late to start” is more appropriate. Our season winner started late but finished strong putting up huge numbers in only 3 of the 6 weeks.

Nick, put up the largest weekly total , 186.5″, in the final week to take over the top spot. Nick climbed up the overall leaderboard and found himself on top of the podium hoisting a huge foam prize check and surrounded by screaming adoring fans.

We really appreciate all of the support and enthusiasm the competitors brought each week. We hope that each angler has as much of fun as we have putting the league together. Also we want to express a great thanks to JB as the league coordinator. The league wouldn’t have gone off without his efforts.

We are already planning a Fall League so stay tuned and we hope to see you out there soon.

2021 Summer League – Running Big Fish Standing – through Week 2

As a review, we get going at 8 a.m. and competitors will be randomly paired and then randomly assigned one of the 10 beats available. Once the pairing arrives at their assigned beat and figures out who will go first each angler gets 60 minutes to fish. Total inches of fish (minimum length of 8″) counts to the weekly and season totals. Cash prizes are awarded for top three finishers of the season.

This is a great way to meet anglers, find new waters and be exposed to different angling styles. Drop in competitors are welcome each week. This is low key and a fun time for everyone involved.
