    McCloud River - Our annual October Caddis outing.

    October 26-29 (Th-Su) 2017.  Ah-Di-Nah Campground. Fishmaster - Kirston Koths.

    Here is the Fishout Sheet and maps of the Conservancy, the river from the dam to Ah-Di-Nah, and the upper river loop.

    The McCloud River is absolutely beautiful this time of year. And the fish love the big caddis flies that should be hatching, especially the migrating (big!) browns. Just cast near a the edges and watch your fly explode!

    NOTE: This outing is located far from medical services, in a remote canyon where wading is difficult and injuries are not uncommon. This outing is a fun trip that will test (and hopefully improve) your angling skills, but it is not recommended for beginning anglers, those with limited wading skills, or people with health and fitness issues.

    We will have a potluck dinner on Saturday night after sunset, followed by a campfire gathering with special activities.

    GPFF strongly encourages car pooling. Contact the fishmaster or me to coordinate rides, or, more generally, if you have questions.

    November 8, 2017 (Wednesday).  The fishings is best with little wind and an ebb tide, and this date gives us the best window.  Fishmaster - Rich Miller.

    Limit 6 people (not including Leo), but stretchable to 8 if we can get a third boat.  Boat rental costs to be shared among participants.  I have reserved two 15' aluminum skiffs (last year, $110 per boat, 2 people in each) from Sugar Barge Marina (1440 Sugar Barge Road, Bethel Island, CA 94511), and Leo can take 2 more people in his boat.  We will meet at the marina boat launch ramp at 7:45 AM.  We must return the rented boats before 4:30 PM.

    Here is a map of the Sugar Barge Marina.

    The General Agenda:

    6:30 p.m. ~ Appetizers and Socializing.

    7:00 p.m. ~ Club Business


    7:30 p.m. ~ Presentation by Trent Pridemore

    9:00 p.m. ~ Adjournment

    Synopsis:  Fly Fishing The Upper Water Column For Large and Smallmouth Bass

    Trent’s 50 minute PowerPoint Presentation evolved from three feature articles on flyrod bass fishing that he wrote for California Fly Fisher Magazine.  His program focuses on the upper water column where bass are reachable with a flyrod.  He will discuss the biology and behavior patterns that bring bass into shallow areas, bass food items and the types of habitat and structure that produce inshore and topwater action.  Effective fly patterns, retrieves and tactics are covered.  Equally important is discussion of the revolution in flyrod bass fishing tackle that includes specialty rods, lines and innovative new flies, and how to select a flyrod outfit that will allow you to cast them effortlessly.  California and western waters are mentioned including some that you might not know about.  These include the spectacular Northern largemouth fishery at Oregon’s Davis Lake,  smallmouth on the Umpqua river as well as chasing huge Florida strain fish at Mexico’s El Salto and Picachos lakes.  A bonus section looks briefly at “Bugging For Browns in Chilean Patagonia”, where Brown trout behave like bass and eat Fat Albert terrestrials as well as dragonfly patterns and bass bugs in Andean mountain lakes.

    GPFF Holiday Dinner
    Wednesday December 13th.
          Our Holiday Dinner will be held on the regular Wednesday night meeting in December, beginning at 6:00pm. This is a well attended informal evening and a chance to get to know other club members. Please consider inviting someone you do not know well to sit at your table.

    The chair person for this event is Linda Friedman. Since parties are not organized on a wing and a prayer, GPFF needs your help.  If you can volunteer, please choose one of the options when registering on the website.

    GPFF supplies turkey, salmon and ham. Soft Drinks & beer, at the regular donation, will be available. You may bring your own wine.

    You will be asked to bring either an appetizer, salad, side, or dessert dish. This will be determined after sign ups are complete.

    Register on the website!
    You must RSVP by December 9th.

    Non club members are welcome to attend. We just need to know how many tables to set up and the number of people to plan for.

    Thank You
