    March Monthly Meeting

    Speaker: Maurrie Sussman of Sisters on the Fly

    For all the fly fishers out there who wish their female companions, spouses or family members were more interested in fly fishing, this is the program for you! Invite your wives, girlfriends and daughters to attend to learn about Sisters on the Fly, an organization dedicated to bringing the joys of fly fishing to women...or is it women to the joys of fly fishing?

    Although, watch out: if they get into it and join Sisters on the Fly, the men don't get to go with them!  From their web site:

    “Offering empowerment and sisterhood through exceptional outdoor adventures.”

    As a group of women, we challenge ourselves in all that we set our minds to.
    We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, nationality, color, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or age (>21).

    All women who want to share in the adventures of our sisterhood are welcome.
    “WE HAVE MORE FUN THAN ANYONE” is our credo as we socialize, mobilize and recreate together.

    We encourage you to join Sisters on the fly on our activities & adventures and expand your horizons. Learn to fish, ride a horse, kayak, camp under the stars, travel to various destinations near and far. The best part of Sisters on the Fly is simply meeting new sisters, like minded and kindred spirits. Network through our organization and find your very own Sisters! 
    Sisters on the fly rules are simple to follow- “No men, no kids, be nice & have fun.”

    Becky and Maurrie are truly sisters. They were brought up by their adventurous mother Mazie who was the best role model for these two and taught them how to enjoy the outdoors and become capable, independent women. Mazie lived to be 94 and her spirit is still with her daughters as they continue to inspire women to travel and camp and fish and explore every horizon as empowered adventurers.

    In 1999, Becky and Maurrie were fishing in Montana with Austin Lowder, Maurrie’s son, an outfitter and guide. One of the sisters (which one has never been disclosed and is part of the lore and fish tale) had the good luck to catch an 8-pound trout.

    Well, while they were celebrating with a glass of wine back at camp, they got to thinking, “We are having way too much fun to keep all the good times to ourselves. Let’s invite some of our girlfriends to come along on the next trip.” And that’s just how Sisters on the Fly was born.

    Since that August day in 1999, more than 12,500 women have joined the SOTF ranks.  Our current active membership is in excess of 8,000 and growing daily- women who take advantage of all Sisters on the Fly offers. Come join the fun!

    April Monthly Meeting

    Putah Creek Restoration and Fishing Tips

    Presented by Steve Karr, Chairman of the Board for Putah Creek Trout

    Steve Karr will present an updated status report on the restoration projects both current and future that are being conducted within the Inter-dam Reach of Putah Creek. Additionally, Steve will provide information on how and where to fish the creek successfully.

    Steve has been a fly fisherman for over 50 years and has been fishing Putah Creek since the 1990’s during which time he witnessed many changes in the stream and the trout fishery. He joined Putah Creek Trout during its first year (2007) when it was still just a small group of concerned fishermen and women hoping to bring the Creek back to its Trophy Trout status. 

    In 2009 the group achieved 501(c) 3 nonprofit status and Steve became Chairman of the Board in 2010. With an exceptionally talented and supportive Board, numerous volunteers, and funding from fly fishing clubs and others they have accomplished several milestones including special catch and release regulations, Wild Trophy Trout designation, and establishment of restoration programs designed to improve the creek ecosystem, expand the fishery, and provide better access for the many different recreational users of this valuable natural resource.

    Kistler Bass Ranch - Friday April 16, 2019.

    Fishmaster - Bob Woznicki.


    Kistler Bass Ranch Outing. Friday, April 16. The ranch is located on Hwy 108 near

    Jamestown with 3 large ponds to fish for big bass as well as bluegill. The ponds can be fished

    from small water craft such as pontoon boats or float tubes, but walking and wading are also

    good as much of the fishing is very near shore. A 6-8wt rod is best to cast the large bass bugs,but wooly buggers, damsel and dragonfly nymphs work well, too. We’ll have a more detailed information sheet for everyone that

    • The South Fork of Battle Creek

    Josh and Elaina Genser have 300 acres of land on the South Fork of Battle Creek, about two miles of private water, teeming with trout.  This is your chance to visit and fish these waters, and it's also the biggest fund-raiser of the year for the Grizzly Peak Fly Fishers Club.

    This outing is open to up to twelve people.  Getting to the Genser' property requires a 4WD vehicle, but there are several members who have them so you can come even if you don't have your own.

    We will all sleep in sleeping bags on the deck, but otherwise there are all of the conveniences of home, including hot running water, a shower and a flush toilet.

    In addition to fishing, there is swimming in the Creek, hiking, target and trap shooting, and probably a poker game.

    The hiking up and down the river can be very difficult, with lots of slippery rocks, steep banks, thorny bushes and some deeper water.  Sorry, but if your mobility is limited, this is probably not a good outing for you.

    This program will occur only if we are back to in-person meetings.  If we're still on Zoom, we'll have to find a different program.

    McCloud River Outing

    Fishmaster: Kirston Koths

    GPFF Covid-19 Rules are to come and this event may have limited space.

    Our annual October Caddis outing.October 21 - 24, 2021 (Th-Su). Skill level - Intermediate to advanced(difficult terrain). Ah-Di-Nah Campground.

    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.

    Contact the fishmaster at 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.
