Fishing Tournament

Joseph Fleitas Memorial Fishing Trophy

The 2019 Joseph Fleitas Fishing Trophy will be awarded to the CYC member 15 years or younger who catches and documents the most impressive fish from local waters.

“To reach the heart of a child, the best and most direct way is to take the child fishing and listen to their observations on life between fish bites”

Tournament Overview

  • The tournament will be ongoing throughout the summer Memorial Day through the Annual Meeting in August.

  • Fish will be judged on size, weight, beauty and difficulty of catch - a good story enhances chances of winning.
