On this year’s National Coastal Clean-up Day the Flycasters Conservation Committee is organizing a clean-up of the clubs adopted section of Los Gatos Creek adjacent to the casting ponds between Lark Avenue and Camden Avenue. The clean-up will start at 9:00 AM on Saturday, September 15 and we will all gather back at the casting ponds at 12:00 noon. The sponsors, Santa Clara Valley Water District will provide the trash and recycle bags and well as gloves, if you need them. The Conservation Committee will provide some trash pick-up tools, “grabbers” and small rakes, for your use for ease of recovering trash. We are not allowed to get in the water. During our clean-up last year, we recovered an estimated 180 lbs of trash and recyclables. We will provide water, coffee and donuts to get you “kick” started for the morning clean-up.
Bring your fly rods and do some practice casting at the ponds after the clean-up. If you would like to help, contact any committee member or Chuck Hammerstad.
