    Agenda Overview:

    · We meet at the lake  or a a predetermined location. On the first day, we can also meet anglers unfamiliar with the lake at an easier place to find along the way. The guide(s) will be at the lake at day break unless other plans have been made due to weather. Anglers can show up at their convenience in the morning.


    · Breakfast is served at the fishing location on the beach around 8:30-9:00 am. Breakfast is  bagels, coffee and juice.
    · After breakfast there may be a need to move fishing locations depending on the wind and the fish.
    · Lunch is served around 1:00 pm at the fishing location and ranges from homemade soup and sandwiches to burgers or wraps depending on the weather.
    · The guide(s) will stay with the group until late afternoon or later depending on the fishing.

    · Guide fees

    $275 including guide gratuity per angler for the two-day outing, with a 6-person minimum.
    · If the group reaches 9 anglers, then a 2nd guide will be hired for the first day and if the group gets to 12 anglers Plus, the 2nd guide will stay both days.

    What’s included:

    · Breakfast and lunch both days, including water, sports drinks, soft drinks and coffee
    · All necessary gear including ladders, rods and reels, waders, flies etc. It is a good idea if the anglers bring their own waders and rods if they have them.


    Accommodations:

    Last year the club stayed at the Nugget Casino and Resort.

    For Reservations please contact Jarre’ Payne Corporate sales manager at 775.356.3455 or 800.843.2427 Ext. 3455 or the hotel reservations desk and mention you are booking a corporate rate with PFF/Patrick Stauter and Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters as well. If you can call Jarre’ Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00 and use the reservations desk for last minute bookings.

    All you do is mention you are with Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters. There are several options for rooms including standard rooms, mini suites and two room suites. The rates at the Nugget are great and the location is perfect for fishing Pyramid. Free Airport Shuttle Service and Pick Up for Guided Trips as well. 

    Anglers can also use our corporate account to get hotel rooms at a discounted rate at either the Silver Legacy

    (800-687-8733) or the Grand Sierra Resort (888-877-8944). When making reservations make sure you tell them you are booking your room under the corporate rate with Bucket List Fly Fishing. There is also camping at the lake if anglers have a hard-sided camper, RV etc. Days are long at the lake and the short 45-minute drive to Reno is recommended. Both hotels have 24-hour food, nice rooms and are a good choice after a lot of fishing at the lake. The rooms at the Grand Sierra are about $20 more a night but they offer a Junior Suite that has much more room for gear etc. for anglers sharing a room.

    Rob Anderson Bio

    Rob resides in Reno, Nevada and currently has his own fly fishing travel business, Bucket List Fly Fishing Adventures and is the lead guide and owner of Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters. Rob currently guides on the Truckee River in both California and Nevada, Pyramid Lake, Davis Lake, East Walker River, Frenchman’s and 4 different private waters. He regularly does speaking engagements on Pyramid Lake and other Northern Nevada and California waters and numerous “Bucket List” destinations around the world including an annual hosted trip to the Amazon for Peacock Bass. Rob is always willing and ready to educate fly fishing enthusiasts.

    Rob Anderson grew up in Virginia and was fishing from the time he can remember. At the age of 9, he learned to fly fish. From that point on, he fly-fished for bass and pan fish in Virginia as much as possible. After college, Rob pursued his other passion, golf, by working in that business for 15 years. During this time, he had headed west and settled in Lake Tahoe. In 1997, while still working in the golf industry, he was reintroduced to fly fishing by his friend Chris Evison. Chris taught him the art of fly fishing for trout in moving water. His love of the sport was reborn!

    In his free time from the golf business he regularly visited the Reno Fly Shop where he began learning how to tie flies (he is now a Signature Fly Designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants with over 20 patterns tied commercially). In the fall of 2001, the Reno Fly Shop offered Rob a part-time job which shortly thereafter, turned into a full-time position managing the retail store, private waters program and guide business until the Reno Fly Shop closed in 2010. The closing of the Reno Fly Shop resulted in Rob having more time and freedom in his pursuit of design, creativity and teaching in the Fly-Fishing industry.

    It was in 2003 that Rob pursued his interest in guiding at Pyramid Lake. Rob ultimately became the first non-tribal fly fishing guide at the Lake. Since that time has built a fly fishing specific website for Pyramid Lake, pyramidlakeflyfishing.com and runs the largest and most successful guide service there. Rob’s love of Pyramid Lake has also driven him to design Pyramid-specific flies which have increased the popularity of nymphing at the lake. Two of these flies are the Maholo Fly and the Maholo Midge which are sold at fly shops and retailers all over the West. Rob will provide you a box of flies for $35. Need to order by March 1st and Rob will bring

    Fly fishing at its best! Nestled in the quiet Manton Valley of Northern California’s picturesque Shasta County, you’ll find Twin Creeks Ranch, home to Bailey Creek Lodge. Only 45 minutes east of Redding and Red Bluff.

    Cool, crystal clear waters bubble up from the base of majestic Mt. Lassen, then tumble down the mountainside for many miles to form Bailey Creek and neighboring Rock Creek. As the streams flow towards the ranch, they are fed by several spring systems, affording incredible animal and plant life. Anglers at Bailey Creek Lodge will enjoy easy access to Bailey Creek, which has open paths, shaded pools with native trout and very little streamside brush.

    The secondary waters of Rock Creek offer a more rugged terrain amid large rocks and trees – this one is for the more adventurous angler. In addition to Bailey Creek and Rock Creek, two trophy trout-filled lakes await you.

    LODGING information 32455 Battleview Dr, Manton, CA 96059

    The Lodge sits right above Bailey Creek literally steps away. This is a five bedroom, five bath beauty that you will find extremely comfortable. All rooms have a private bathroom and French doors opening up to a patio. You will find our accommodations very luxurious. The lodge has 5 bedrooms, 4 with double beds, 1 Master bedroom.

    FISHING INFORMATION

    Rules & Tips

    Although the property is private, we still operate under Fish & Game guidelines and regulations. Therefore, FISHING LICENSES ARE REQUIRED and must be displayed.

    All of the ranch fishing is fly fishing with BARBLESS HOOKS, catch and release only.

    PLEASE, NO HARD NYLON OR COTTON NETS!

    Hemostats and soft nylon nets will make it easier to land the bigger fish and release them quickly.

    Rods of 3-5 wt. are ideal. Leaders 7′ – 10′ tapered to 4x are ideal. With tippet spools of 4x, 5x and 6x, you can build leaders for stream or lake fishing and using streamer type flies that demand those heavier tippets of 3x and 4x to dry fly leaders then may require you to go all the way down to 6x or maybe even 7x. Normally, you will use the shorter leaders for the stream and those longer ones for the lakes.

    Hip waders with felt soles are perfect for the stream or for fishing from shore on the lakes. Chest waders are needed if you plan to float tube the lakes.

    BRING EACH FISH TO NET OR HAND AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

    DO NOT DRAG THE FISH UP ON THE BANKS OR HOLD THEM OVER LAND.

    KEEP THE FISH IN THE WATER WHILE DISENGAGING THE HOOK. USING A HEMOSTAT IS REALLY HELPFUL – YOU DON’T HAVE TO TOUCH THE FISH. JUST REACH DOWN, ENGAGE THE HOOK, AND WITH A QUICK TWIST, THE FISH IS RELEASED WITH NO HANDLING WHATSOEVER.

    WHEN TAKING PICTURES, HOLD THE FISH OVER WATER. KEEP THEM IN THE WATER UNTIL JUST BEFORE YOU HAVE THE PICTURE TAKEN, AND THEN TAKE ONLY 2-3 SECONDS TO SNAP THAT SHOT.

    In the lakes, expect to find damsel flies, various mayflies, midges and caddis, plus aquatic beetles and water boatmen. Around the edges, terrestrials (ants, beetles and grasshoppers) make their annual appearances. The streams will contain various mayflies, caddis, stoneflies and, of course, terrestrials. As a general rule expect larger flies to work best in early season and smaller flies to work best during the late season

    FOR THE LAKES

    Bring floating and sink tip or sinking lines (up to type III). You will need long leaders tapered to 5x or 6x for the dry activity, and a little shorter leader tapered to 3x to 4x for the wet activity. EXPECT A LOT OF ACTION USING EMERGING INSECTS JUST UNDERNEATH THE SURFACE. Many of our regulars fish some type of dry or emerger with a dropper, short or long, and a nymph or midge pupa attached. Expect midge activity to start in early spring and continue all year. Mayflies start in late spring and early summer. Terrestrials are effective most of the season, especially after early spring. Leeches, damsels and dragonfly patterns seem to work best from late spring on. A crystal bugger or leech with a nymph trailer can be deadly. You must experiment with various retrieves at different depths until you strike gold! Many lake fishermen have great success fishing a nymph of some kind at various depths underneath an indicator. Just let it sit there for a bit, patience is a virtue at this point, and then pull it slowly back for another cast.

    FOR THE STREAMS

    Shorter leaders tapered to 4x or 5x are more appropriate. Deer hair flies with short droppers or no droppers will produce. Nymphs of various sizes and colors should be in your box. Yellow Humpies, Stimulators and Elk Hair Caddis are high on our list for dries, but there are a number of other popular patterns, such as Parachute Adams, that will work well. Hanging a nymph underneath these high floaters can sometimes turn the trick. Black AP’s, PT’s Prince Nymphs and Golden Stones are some of the wet flies we would try first. Small nymph patterns will begin to be the best choice in the late summer and fall.

    Food and Beverage will be discussed at a Round Table April 2nd 

    Thanks

    Peter
