We will meet everyone at the Irvine Finch boat ramp in Hamilton City. Take I5 North to the second Orland Exit (HWY 32 to Chico). Go east on Hwy 32 ten miles to the town of Hamilton City. Go through town and before you get to the bridge, Irvine Finch boat ramp is on the right.

Be ready to leave the ramp at Noon on Saturday. We will fish until 8pm or so.


There will be snacks available through out the afternoon and dinner will be at 5:30-6:00PM. Dinner is a hearty BBQ chicken slow cooked in a barrel with green salad, fresh fruit, chips and salsa, dinner roll and cookies for dessert. We will have cold beverages available too.


In addition to the check list,Dr. Shad Information.pdf the spey guys should bring 10 ft of T8 and T11 for their Skagit lines along with whatever lines they have. The shad can come closer and higher in the water column in the evening so bring your lighter lines too.

 Single hand guys can start with 30 ft of Type 4 shooting head with good quality running line ( Amnesia, Slick shooter, Varivas etc.).

 Shad can bite very light so a try to keep a tight line to the fly. After your cast slowly srtip in some line so you come tighter to your fly. You will feel more grabs if you do that.

 We will have flies for you to use if anyone needs them. 


Looking forward to seeing everyone!
