Monthly Meeting – Fly Fishing in a “State” of Ecstasy: Chip O’Brien Talks about Opportunities in Northern California and Southern Oregon – July 26, 2018 @7pm
The presentation will encompasses some of his favorite wild trout fisheries in Northern California and Oregon, arguably some of the best fishing on the West Coast.
Some of the California destinations included are the ‘biggies’ like Hat Creek, Fall River, the Pit, McCloud and the upper and lower Sac. But his fancies are not always that conventional. Sometimes he prefers to float tube the moving water of Keswick Reservoir, or fish the Capering Sedge hatch on Manzanita Lake.
In Oregon, he can’t resist the adrenalin-pumping, white-knuckle fishing on the Keno stretch of the Klamath, the fabled McKenzie River or even throwing flies he cannot see to torpedo-shaped browns on the remote lower Owyhee.
Included will be all you need to know to visit these terrific wild-trout Meccas and catch fish, but also a healthy dose of history, quirky facts, anecdotes and possibly a few bold-faced lies.” Details

2018 Long Beach Casting Club Spey Casting Tournament Results
Long Beach Casting Club sponsored the first Annual LBCC Spey Casting Tournament on January 27 and 28, 2018.
Updated Constitution & Bylaws
In November the board decided to bring our constitution and bylaws (found on pages 52 to 59 of the roster) up to date and asked a work team consisting of Cecil O’Dell, Keith O’Donnell, Mick Woodbury, Tom McGivern and Rick Hillis to tackle the project. The task involved documenting changes over the past year and making numerous editorial changes for easier reading. In the January board meeting the team submitted an update, which the board approved.
The updated constitution and bylaws were approved at the Annual General Meeting on April 5. It can be accessed at our website by clicking here.
