March Outing: Lower Owens, Sat/Sun, 3/8-9
This month’s trip will be our third of three 2014 trips to the Lower Owens River in Bishop. Why so many you ask? Because it’s a great winter fishery offering lots of fish, easy wading, and generally pleasant temperatures. Meet at the campground footbridge at 9am Saturday. Lend a hand to those new to the sport/area. Dinner will be at the Pizza Factory Saturday night. See below for pre-trip info.
Lower Owens Workshop, Saturday, 3/1, 9-12
In preparation for our Lower Owens trips, instead of our usual Wednesday night pre-trip meetings, we’ll have a 3 hour Saturday morning workshop prior to each trip. This beginner workshop will cover flies, rigs, leaders, and tips useful for success on the Owens. It’ll also cover the usual trip information such as dates, times, meals, lodging, etc. All are welcome whether you’re going on the trip or not.
Club Cast: Sunday, March 2nd, 9am
Come on out and practice your casting before you get on the stream. You’ll want your arm in good shape for our upcoming series of winter outings.
