Jocassee Outdoor Center Trout Tournament Series

For almost 30 years, JOC has sponsored annual trout tournaments on Lake Jocassee.  These tournaments have become a tradition among trout fishermen not only for the fishing competition, but also for the camaraderie. All of our tournaments are for the biggest fish caught so everyone has a fair chance of winning. After all, it only takes one fish and that one could be yours!

The late Jimmie Orr was a legendary figure around Lake Jocassee and was the former owner of Hoyett's Grocery & Tackle (now known as JOC).  In honor of Jimmie, in 2005 JOC started the Jimmie Orr Points Championship which honors an overall point winner for the entire series of tournaments.  The ultimate goal for every fisherman, above and beyond the individual tournament money, is to bring home the “wood” (wooden trophy plaque) and bragging rights by winning the Jimmie Orr Points Championship for that season!

Come join in the fun and test your skills and luck against your fellow trout anglers!
