May 13 - 15, 2021
The Ausable River Two-Fly Challenge was founded to celebrate the joy of fishing, spirit of sportsmanship, preservation of the Ausable River, and natural wonders of the Whiteface Region. COVID may have changed things, but we won't let it keep us down! Keep checking back for more details on what we will be doing new and different this year!

Details to be determined
Rules for the catch-and-release tournament are simple: anglers are allowed to bring two barb-less hook flies of any combination or patterns. Once the flies are lost or unusable, he or she is out. Anglers must fish with a partner and each must record the total number of fish caught, the length of each fish, and the cumulative number of inches. Only fish handled by the angler and successfully released will count as caught fish. The winner is determined by the highest cumulative length of each fish caught.
Each fisherman can choose just two flies to user per day. They must pick their flies they will use at the beginning of the day. If the lose them, they are done. Official rules are sent with registration confirmations.
