General Meeting with guest speaker Ernie Gulley

Ernie will talk about "Crowley Lake Fishing Tactics". The name Crowley Lake speaks for itself. For the last couple of decades this stillwater has consistently been one of the best stillwater fisheries in the West. The fish are getting bigger with larger numbers every year! 

Crowley Lake that has revolutionized the way we look at indicator fishing for trout. Ernie will cover the best places to fish on the lake depending on the months you are fishing by showing a map of the lake. The migrating patterns of the fish from opening day to the closer. How to get to the fish using water craft, boats, tubes, pontoons etc. and how to fish out of each one effectively. How to anchor your craft and make a solid platform to fish from. Once you find the fish how to attack them by using three simple rules that will make you better than 90% of the fisherman on the lake. Many, many pictures of fly patterns that have worked over the years and today! Leader setups for both regular indicator fishing and deepwater indicator fishing as deep as 20 feet of water. We fish midge patterns, perch patterns, leach patterns, damsel nymph patterns and stillwater worms under an indicator very successfully. 

Ernie will also talk about stripping tactics and how to set up your leader systems to fish perch and leach patterns on sinking and intermediate lines. Not only do these tactics work well at Crowley but can be taken anywhere in the world that has stillwaters and good midge and fry populations and will successfully and consistently catch trout. 

Doors open: 7 pm, start meeting 7:30 pm
