    Lower Owahee River in SE Oregon, July 8-12 (Mon-Fri).  Fishmaster - Rich Miller.

    This is a famous tailwater fishery, home to large rainbows and browns that rise regularly each summer afternoon to PMD's. This part of the river flows through a beautiful canyon cut into high desert country.  The weather will be warm, but the river cold.  There are formal campgrounds on the Owahee Reservoir and just below the dam, but I prefer pickup camping along the tailwater.

    The drive from Berkeley is 620 miles via Winnemucca (I-80 to I-95), with Google Maps estimating 9.5 hours driving.  That is a lot less than I've ever taken.

    Oregon fishing licenses are easy to get online. A 3-day license was under $40. You can get a non-resident annual license for around $120.


    Motel accommodations available downriver in some of the nearby towns, perhaps half and hour away.

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

    Mild backpacking to fish the beautiful High-Sierra country in the Rock Creek Basin. Little Lakes Valley Backpacking.

    If you would like to register for this trip, you must contact Ron Francis at 925-788-3390 to discuss particulars and alternatives to for this trip.  IF THIS TRIP IS FULL, THERE MAYBE SAME DAY WALK IN PERMITS. PLEASE CONTACT RON DIRECTLY IF INTERESTED.

    Little Lakes Valley Backpack and Fish Trip

    Aug-14-18 (Wed-Sun) Fish master – Ron Francis. We will meet in Mammoth Lakes and stay Wednesday night in modest lodgings there or car camp in a Forest Serviced Campsite up Rock Creek Rd., to help us acclimatize to the 9000-10,000' elevations. Carpooling up and back is encouraged. The next morning we will hike in about 3 miles and set up a base camp (for 2 nights and 3 days fishing) at one of the nearer lakes. From there we will venture out to fish a variety of creeks and lakes. If some people would like a slightly shorter trip, it will be fine for them to walk back out Saturday, but only with a partner. If some want an extra day hiking out on Monday is possible.  For safety, because of high altitude and bears you must partner or travel with the group. Backpacking equipment is required. We will arrange to share food and approved bear storage containers.


    The basin is a great place for beginners.  Tons of fish and no waders necessary. The fish are generally small, but include goldens.  The scenery is among the most beautiful in California, in sight of the tree line, in a breathtaking valley.

    The easy access to this beautiful chain of lakes make Little Lakes Valley popular for fishing, day hikes and beginning backpackers. Glaciers carved this extensive chain of lakes, both large and small. Wildflowers bloom in the high elevation framed by the spectacular 13,000-foot peaks of Bear Creek Spire, Mt. Dade, Mt. Abbot and Mt. Mills. Some evidence of historical mining equipment can be seen, along with an old road bed at Morgan Pass. This is an active bear area so you must use bear containers to secure your food and refuse.

    Updated 1/27/2019


    Willamette National Forest in west-central Oregon, August 26 - 30 (Mon-Fri).  Fishmaster - Rich Miller.

    We shall fish Salt Creek, Salmon Creek, and the North Fork of the Middle Fork Willamette River, lovely streams
    that flow through modest-elevation forests to  the Middle Fork of the Willamette River, as well as the Middle Fork itself above Lookout Point Reservoir.  These waters have lots of trout, some in the Middle Fork quite large, frequently willing to rise to dries.  We plan on camping at the unusual Blue Pool CG on OR-58.  If you drive in along OR-58, you can stop and see the Salt Creek Falls, nearly 300' high.

    The area is a 7 hour road trip (not counting stops) up past Shasta, east and north on OR-97, and west on OR-58.

    Oregon fishing licenses are easy to get online. A 3-day license was under $40. You can get a non-resident annual license for around $120.


    Hotel Accommodations available downriver in Oakridge if you don't want to camp.  Float trips on the Middle Fork are available if water levels are high enough through the Caddis Fly Shop in Eugene.

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

    McCloud River - Our annual October Caddis outing.October 24 - 27, 2019 (Th-Su). Skill level - Intermediate to advanced(difficult terrain). 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 at to coordinate rides, or, more generally, if you have questions.

    Look here for the fishout sheet a few weeks before the trip. Here are maps of the Conservancy, the river from the dam to Ah-Di-Nah, and the upper river loop.
