    YUBA RIVER Private Water FISHOUT

    Registration opens Mon. Dec. 6

    The University of California Regents have granted us access to their private water.  This PFF fishout is a great opportunity to fish for 2 days with other members of the club. Sausage or hot dog style lunch will be provided on Saturday. Be sure to bring plenty of water for this event. The private section has a nice covered picnic area with tables and BBQ's. Private restrooms are next to the parking area.

    $55 total per member for 2 days of fishing. 

    This event will be limited to 12 attendees

    Unit Skwala, Pat's Rubber Legs flies by Frank Cavaliere


    We are timing this fishout to put us on river when the Lower Yuba's famed Skwala Stoneflies start to hatch.  These are huge flies for this time of year (1/2 - 7/8" long) and Yuba's wild rainbows will key on both nymphs and adults.  It is one of the most anticipated hatches of all Central Valley tailwaters.

    Note: Given the time of year, we will closely monitor the weather and river flows.  If this area experiences storms (wouldn't that be nice!) that increase flows or make the water too turbid to fish, PFF will work with UC Regents to reschedule the trip.  The fishmasters will be in contact with all attendees should that occur.

    Anglers can also use RFFO 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.

    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, 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. If you are in need of a Fly Box you can contact Rob Directly 775-742-1754. or e-mail
