General Information:

Anglers should attend an informal "meet and greet" at 6 pm on July 28th at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center (900 Volunteer Landing Lane, Knoxville, TN 37915) in order to explain the rules of the tournament and socialize with other anglers. All anglers must check in at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center the morning of the tournament. Check-in will begin at 7 am sharp and will continue until 9:00 for the late risers. During event check-in anglers will receive an official 3 Rivers Carp Cup ruler that is to be used to measure and document the length of all fish caught.

The final "weigh-in" and the awards ceremony and banquet will be held at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center. Anglers must bring in their cell phones with pictures of their catch along with their score cards to the Adventure Center no later than 6:00pm. The awards ceremony and an official Carp Cup tournament shirt will be included in the registration fee. Prizes and awards will be given out once all of the contestants' catches have been registered.

There are 2 separate divisions:
Boat and Wade/Kayak


Teams can consist of no more than three people either fishing out of kayaks or a single boat, at least one of which must be 18 years or older. Boats may be motorized or drift.


Any and all self-propelled water craft are legal (SUP, canoe, kayak, float tube, bath tube, etc.). No motorized nor battery operated propulsion may be utilized including trolling motors or outboards. Anglers may also wade without utilizing a boat at all.


Every fish must be recorded with a digital camera or phone, and each measurement must be with an
official Carp Cup ruler (to be provided to each team or angler at sign-in) that clearly shows the entire length of the fish and a close-up of the ruler. Anglers must take two photos of each registered fish; one hero shot and one shot clearly documenting the length of the fish with the official Carp Cup ruler. All fish must also be recorded on each angler's score card. All photos must be texted or emailed immediately to the official 3RCC Command Center upon release of the fish with no submissions permitted after the final weigh in at 6:00pm.

The 5 largest fish per length per team/angler count:

1 inch = 1 point The team/angler with the most points wins their division.

The team/angler with the most points wins their division. In the event of a tie, the angler/team with the largest total fish caught will be declared the winner. In the event of a further tie, the 3RCC ruling committee will decide how to divvy up prizes.
