Monthly Meeting: Fly Fishing Yosemite w/Rick Mazaira, Thursday, August 27th, 7pm

At our August General Meeting, representing Yosemite Outfitters, Rick will talk to us about guiding in Yosemite and fly fishing the surrounding waters. He will explore with us the beautiful fishing locations that the Western Sierra Nevada Mountains have to offer. He will also discuss the beautiful Yosemite National Park, its hiking trails, the Merced, and the mighty Tuolumne River, the seemingly endless Stanislaus River, and the stately Mokelumne River.

Rick’s presentation will provide all of us with the information needed for us to take advantage of fly fishing opportunities in Yosemite and the surrounding areas. Details

August Outing: Alamitos Bay, Saturday, August 15th (New Date!)

Join us for a fun trip to our very own Alamitos Bay.  It’s easy to lauch, the fishing is fun, and frequently provides many surprising catches.  Best of all, it’s free!  Pre-trip is Wednesday, 8/5, 7pm or contact Terry Komisak at tk_nsp44@yahoo.com for details.  NOTE: Previously announced date of August 1 has been moved to accomodate the ACA Tournament.

November Outing: Redding Trip – November 5-8

Our dates are set for the 3rd annual Fly Fishing outing to Redding California. Fish the Lower Sacramento, Upper Sacramento , McCloud, Trinity, Klamath, Fall and Pitt Rivers along with Hat Creek.
In order to take advantage of the supposedly best fishing of the year we have moved the dates from October to November! Steelhead come to mind. In order to make this a successful trip, we need to line up our guides now, a pre-trip meeting shall take place in early August, date to be announced at the July monthly meeting. Aaron Grabiel (The Northern California Guide – www.thenortherncaliforniaguide.com 530-356-2189) has agreed to coordinate guide services for us, but this is the height of fall fishing and our window for securing the best of the guides is rapidly closing.
This outing will include one or more cracker barrel evenings (in the old days a cracker barrel would be opened up, cheese would be sliced, coffee, coco or other beverage would be consumed and stories would be told along with music and with the exchange of other pleasantries). I may be accompanied by a professional musician on one or more of these evenings, if his schedule permits him to join us on this trip. Additionally, we may have a barbeque on one or more of the days or evenings.
Contact PabloGrabiel@hotmail.com (562-652-3771) if you would like to receive information on the trip and secure a spot.
