Three fishouts in the next few weeks
May is proving to be a great month for fishouts for Flycasters
On May 21st -7:00am on Saturday morning - Luke Sing and Mike Lovejoy are hosting a Surf Fishout at Beer Can Beach in Aptos - Meet at the bottom of the staircase on Palo Alto Dr in Aptos - see page 19 of the May Flylines for details
Bob Laskodi once again is hosting Flycasters annual Shad fishout on the Sacramento River on May 24th - contact Bob Laskodi for details - (there was only one spot available as recently as last week)
Dave Pellone is hosting Flycasters first New Member Fishout on the Yuba River on Saturday May 28 - We have exclusive use of a private stretch of the river for one day - this fishout is designed for new fly fishers to gain experience and success fly fishing - details are in the New Member Fishout template in the File Sharing menu -
Fishmaster Jeff Lorelli is hosting a one day fishout on April 9th to Kelsey Bass Ranch - About a 2 1/2 hour drive from San Jose to Snelling, California.
Kelsey Bass Ranch is a 125 acre lake so we can accommodate a good size group and still spread out. If we get at least 10 members to sign up, we can have the lake closed off to others.
Cost is $100/person regardless of how many go.You must be a member of Flycasters to attend this fishout.
In addition to largemouth bass which can get over 10 pounds, there are red ear sunfish which also can get large and are a blast to catch. Depending on the timing of the spawn, the fish can get to be pretty aggressive.
It is recommended that you bring water, other drinks and food to keep your energy level up. Stay hydrated and well nourished. Be prepared for wind and weather; if the lake starts getting choppy, consider getting off it until it calms down.
There is a large BBQ pit available near the launch area. If interested bring your favorite meat and briquettes.
Note: Everyone must read and sign the waiver form to go on this fish out. The waiver form will be put out on the signup table.
See the fishout template in the File Sharing menu under 2016 Fishout for more information.
