Can you hook the fish of the week?

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Jans and Fishwest are putting local and visiting fly fishermen and women to the test with its Fish of the Week Instagram competition.

From Monday, August 21, through September, Jans and Fishwest will pick the best fish from submissions; winners will receive a prize from one of their amazing vendors. To be eligible to win, contestants should be in the Park City area the Monday following their submissions. Here’s how to enter:

  1. Tag both @fishwest and @jans_experts on Instagram*
  2. Use the hashtag #fishoftheweek
  3. Each Monday, a winner will be chosen from the previous week’s submissions.
  4. Have fun and always adhere to the best practices listed below!

*If your account is private, post using the #fishoftheweek, tag @fishwest and @jans_experts, then screenshot your post and send it via Instagram to either @fishwest or @jans_experts.

As always, we want to adhere to best fishing practices and leave no trace. Below are some details on how to handle fish safely.

Use a net, preferably with a rubber bag. These nets are less abrasive and do less damage to fish slime, scales, fins, and gills. Do not handle the fish with dry or gloved hands. When photographing your catch, keep the fish wet and allow them to breathe. If a lift of the fish is needed, keep them as close to their element as possible and limit air exposure to less than 10 seconds.

Fishwest Fly Shop is located in the “Gateway To The Uintas” in Kamas, Utah. Fishwest Fly Shop opened its doors in 2008 in the Salt Lake Valley and has been serving local anglers and visitors to Utah ever since.

Fishwest is surrounded by some of the most productive Utah waters at the base of the Uinta Mountains, right off of the famous Mirror Lake Highway, and you can be on the water within 10 minutes of the front door of the shop. Utah is known for its incredible hatches and productive small streams, as well as the world-renowned Green River.

With over 40 years in the Park City community, the Jans Fly Shop is a go-to for both Parkites and visitors for guided fly fishing tours. Jans has everything you need to enjoy exploring the local blue-ribbon fisheries in their full-service fly shop at the Park Ave. location.
