LOWER WILLIAMSON RIVER - AUGUST 26 - 28
Fish for large, native, Redband Trout on the Lower Williamson River. Fishmaster Lloyd Hayes is hosting a fishoutt at The Sportsmen's River Retreat near Chiloquin Oregon. The Williamson is wide and slow at this point and is fished like a stillwater. For more details see the Fishout Template under the File Sharing menu above - and open the 2016 Fishouts folder.
VIRGINIA LAKES - SEPTEMBER 7 - 11
Last year we fished Virginia Lakes in June and had a great time fishing both Little Virginia and Big Virginia Lakes as well as Trumbul Lake and a couple of the small higher elevation lakes --- This year the fishout is a little later - we hope to avoid the summer crowds and take advantage of the trout feeding frenzy before the Autumn cold weather moves in. Wade Goertz and Bill Mahan host a mostly DIY trip - attendees need to find their own accommodations, etc.- but we hope everyone can find a way to fish together and enjoy meals together and share fishing information. For more details see the Fishout Template under the File Sharing menu above - and open the 2016 Fishouts folder.
EASTERN SIERRA - EARLY FALL - SEPT 30 - OCT 2
Fishmaster Jeff Lorelli is hosting a fishout to the Eastern Sierra - with access to both the East and West Walker Rivers, Kirman Lake, Heenan Lake, and with a little driving even the Carson Rivers and Virginia Lakes. You can even backpack your float tube to some higher elevation lakes. This should prove to be one of the best fishouts of the year - There is a wealth of detailed information in the fishout template --- loads of details --- go to the File Sharing menu above and open the 2016 Fishouts folder and find the Eastern Sierras and Walker River 2016 template.
Tony Yap is conducting a casting clinic focusing onDi stance and Accuracy on Saturday July 23rd - 9AM to 11AM - at the Casting Ponds at Los Gatos Creek Park.
How many times do you wish you could cast just a few feet farther? or even a whole lot farther?
And what about landing your fly within inches of your target - rather than 2 feet to the left --- sort of like slicing your tee shot, but in this case you lose your chance at a nice big fish ...
Tony Yap is a world class flycaster and a fantastic teacher. Let Tony show you how to add greater distance and improved accuracy to your casting.
Bring your favorite fly rod - flyline leader and tippet - and some yarn or something to simulate a fly (NO HOOKS) -- bring a notebook to take notes --- and always BRING AN OPEN MIND ....
Please remember to wear eye protection - sunglasses or eyeglasses are REQUIRED - and this clinic is free for Flycasters club members ... see the July Flylines for more details ...
When people travel to Hawaii, they usually visit the beach, go snorkeling, surfing, whale watching, or just relax and enjoy the sunshine, the scenery and beautiful weather. But very few bring a fly rod and go fishing. What a shame!
Few people know that you can travel to Hawaii and fly fish for rainbow trout as well as largemouth, smallmouth and peacock bass. These fish can be caught in some of Hawaii’s
freshwater streams and impoundments. And did you know that there are world-class bonefish and other tropical species swimming over the flats just offshore?
There are four Hawaiian Islands where a fly rod can be flexed and cast to catch great fish. This month we’re going to learn about these idyllic spots and how to prepare for a fly fishing experience that is becoming more popular.
And the expert to take us on a new adventure is Peter Koga - Flycasters program speaker for August.
Join us August 10 at the Moreland Apts meeting room --- doors open at 6:30 --- Meeting begins at 7:15 ---
