Gene Doyle Fishing Tournament Overview

The 23rd Annual Gene Doyle Fishing Tournament
Which Will Forever be Known As
The Gene Doyle COVID Virtual Tournament

For 22 years the anglers and sponsors of the Gene Doyle Fishing Tournament have helped support the adventures of over 70 young people through the Gene Doyle Adventure Scholarships. Along the way we have had great fun and taken a lot of young people fishing with us. In 2005 we were interrupted by Hurricane Wilma and this year by COVID-19. But fishing is too important to all of us to let the virus knock us off of the water.

The Gene Doyle Tournament Committee and the Foundation want to say Thank You for your many years of support so the 23rd Tournament has no entry fee and will be unique as we all look for safe ways to do what we love.

Awards will be given in Four Divisions:

  • Youth – 15 and under
  • Adult
  • Fly Fishing
  • Captains (see Rule 9)
