We all thought that the Fall League would give anglers the chance to put fish in the net. River conditions and growing experience in the competitive format should have resulted in more fish caught. And that is exactly how things are shaping up.
The League has proven to be as much fun as it is educational. Anglers have the chance to fish with partners that they wouldn’t otherwise get to, forced to watch someone else fish for 45 minutes on water they might not initially choose. It forces anglers to be creative and adaptive. That is the sort of environment that can present great opportunities for expanded knowledge and understanding of a craft.
The expanded field of 12 anglers with early-birds signups and drop-in put a total 414.75 inches of fish on the board. This is a dramatic departure from Week 2 of the Summer League when results were 23.75 inches…
Week 3 is coming up this Saturday 10/12. We are going to start the signups at 0800. We hope, the one hour later start will help anglers with sunlight and water temps. We anticipate openings for drop-ins and always encourage spectators.
While we are beginning to see some separation on the overall leader board, it is not locked up by any stretch. We have 4 weeks remaining and Scott (current) leader did not fish Week 1. Yes, Scott was able to put 134.25 inches on the board in only 45 minutes. As a result, we believe things are still wide open!!!
Here are the overall results through week 2
