    INFORMATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE FOR 2018

    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! 

     

    Thanks

     Wayne

    Here is a document by Bob Porter to give you an overview of the Property

    DIGGER CREEK RANCH

    This premier private water venue is nestled on the slopes of Mr. Lassen and with the record breaking snow pack that will provide chilly water all summer long, which is crucial for the trophy sized rainbows; with their beautiful coloring, and the gorgeous browns that inhabit the lakes.

    The ranch is perfect for every level of angler(s), heck while individual watercraft's and waders are not allowed, which is good. The lakes can be easily fished from shore making the trip even easier…just you, your partner(s), your rod and some flies. There are even nets available for your use. The lakes can accommodate up to 10 anglers per day, remember, when you book Digger Creek Ranch it is yours and yours only. There will not be any others while you and your party are there. You have complete privacy!!

    The lodge, which sleeps up to eight, includes a gourmet kitchen, restrooms, large living room, four bedrooms all with their own private bath along with satellite TV and a wraparound deck with a BBQ for your use. The property can be self-guided or you can have the services of one of our very knowledgeable guides to help you hook and net your fish of a life time!

    The upper lake is right outside the lodge and offers sight fishing with dry flies or indicator fishing.

    The second lake is a short drive down the property. This is a deep lake for streamer fishing and gets much less pressure.

    The lodge has 4 bedrooms with 4 ½ baths. There is a gourmet kitchen with several large tables. There is a firepit between the lake and the lodge. Gas and charcoal barbeques.

    5 wt rods are good with floating and sinking lines.

    Bugs TBD

    See you there

    Upper Sac & McCloud Weekend in Dunsmuir

    Fish Master: EJ Melzer

    Just like last year, we are planning to use the Castle Crags campsite and camp on the side of the river. Fish from your tent if you want.

    EJ will be doing a show and tell for European style nymphing and will be tying his specialty, the woven nymph, on Saturday. We try to reserve the max. amount of tags for the Nature Conservancy section on the McCloud for Friday for those that want to fish this beautiful stretch of river.

    We will make reservations for Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at the campground. We have several BBQ pits and have access to hot showers on the campground. Please contact Patrick Stauter 415-509-2731 By July 1st to confirm you will be camping so we can secure the sites needed. 

    Food and drink schedule: TBD at a later date
    ...

    Some of us will go up on Wednesday afternoon to fish Thursday, Friday and Saturday. If you don't like campgrounds there are reasonably priced lodging options nearby in Dunsmuir.
    Cost: $45 /angler for food and supplies + campsite fee (depending on amount of tents)

    Wyoming Golden Trout Horse Pack Trip: On Trail dates 31-July to 6-August 

    Return to the Days of Youth. Searching for Ultra-Large Golden_Trout. .

     Minimum Rods required 4

    Cost is $500 per person, not including airfare or driving time. Bob Porter is the contact  for additional information. He can be reached at 650-367-7628, email porterrecording@comcast.net 

    Bob Porter was born and raised in Wyoming ranch country near the town of Pinedale. As a kid he fondly remembers the bareback horse rides up the Rocky Mountain valleys to the top of the world. There along the continental divide he plied the alpine lakes with a cane rod and worms extracting 20” trout in liquid gold colors. Ahhh. . . Those are the days of remembered youth we all wish to repeat!

    Now Bob has proposed a return trip to re-visit those exciting, storied waters, of his youth. As planned it would be a 12 mile horseback ride, with saddle this time, up to a Wyoming lake at 10,800ft without a specific name. It should take about 6 hours by horse.  So one day inward, one day outward, and several days fly fishing and day hiking around streams and other nearby lakes makes it a  7 day high altitude camping trip. The flowers and scenery will be breath taking as one looks westward over the valley towards Pinedale. The cost of the horses is  $500 for each person if at least four people sign up. The horses would carry 70 lbs of gear for each person and provide a ride up to the lake. The horses would return in roughly a week to take us back down to the cars.  In-between, it is one-on-one with wiley mountain trout found in streams and nearby lakes. Success is defined by the scenery and stories to be told. Actual catching of fish depends on Bob’s memory, the weather, physical fitness level, and the skill of the fly fisherperson versus the size of the prize. Travel options to Wyoming, camping advice and extra equipment to borrow will be available and subjects of discussion prior to the trip.

    The horse reservation dates are fixed as above. Contact Bob or Gary if you are interested.

    The Truckee River will be on Saturday September 21, 2019 this year.  This will be prime time as the water starts cooling down a bit and the summer crowds are gone.

    We have two spacious houses available from members that can accommodate about 15 people on Friday and Saturday night.

    Many of us will arrive on Friday, but (very) early risers can drive up early on Saturday morning. Detailed logistics will follow as we get closer.  

    On Friday night we are welcome at EJ's place for food and drinks and on Saturday we will have a pot-luck at Rich Slade's house. The houses are a mile apart and situated in Tahoe Donner. The club will supply  the 3 B's, burgers, brats and beer. The members supply the salad, appetizers and deserts. 

    For connaisseurs Rich might prepare some pepper tequila shots.

    The Truckee and the Little Truckee are great rivers this time of year. Rods are typically 3-5 wt. Nymphing is consistently good, dries and streamers can be great or nothing depending on the day. Be prepared for all conditions. 

    Cost: $50
