    Updated 3/18/2017

    July 30-Aug 3 (Sun-Thu) 2017 - Camping at Saddlebag Lake Campground.  Limited to 12 people (2 campsites). Fish master - Dan Zimmerlin


    This is our traditional Tuolumne Meadows trip, but we were only able to obtain camp sites at Saddlebag Lake, which is quite attractive in its own way, and hardly any further from  the streams.


    High Sierra fishing. Streams in the area include the west slope Upper Tuolumne River and its Dana and Lyell Fork tributaries, and the east slope Mine and Lee Vining Creeks. There are a number of accessible dammed lakes and many natural high mountain lakes for those willing to hike.


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

    Look here a few weeks before the trip for the Fishout Sheet, which will contain final details, fishing and flow information.

    Updated 5/16/2017

     

    Mild backpacking to fish beautiful High-Sierra country for Rainbows, Brookies, and Goldens.

     

    Aug 23-27 (Wed-Sun) 2017. Fishmaster - Rich Miller.


    The 20 Lakes Basin lies in the Hoover Wilderness just to the NW of Saddlebag Lake (10,000' elevation) and N of Tioga Pass.  There is road access to Saddlebag where there is a store, NF campground, and water taxi available to take us across the lake to an 8 mile loop trail (400' elevation gain) through the basin that leads past 7 lakes.  A little more climbing gives access to several more lakes.  We shall walk in, set up camp, and fish the lakes.


    Great for beginners.  Tons of fish and no waders necessary. The fish are generally small, but occasionally you may be surprised.

    • June Lake (??)

    Updated 11/29/2016


    Famous Upper Owens meadow fishing, the unique Hot Creek, the Owens Gorge, and even the headwaters of the San Joaquin and Upper Rock Creek, the last two high above the valley on the Sierra Crest.


    Sept 13-17 (We-Su) 2017 - June Lake Campground(??). Fishmaster - XX.


    The valley is heavily fished and the fish are picky. The high mountain streams will be tiny, but contain some nice-sized fish.  The Gorge is somewhere in between, but well worth seeing and fishing.

    McCloud River - Our annual October Caddis outing.


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


    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.


    Look here a few weeks before the trip for the Fishout Sheet, which will contain final details, fishing and flow information.


    To get you started, here are maps of the Conservancy, the river from the dam to Ah-Di-Nah, and the upper river loop.

    LEO WILL SHOW US HOW TO FISH FOR STRIPERS ON THE DELTA


    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.

    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.

    HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
    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.

    HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
    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
