Our November 9th meeting
featured Robert Tamson's program on Fly Fishing
the Everglades. His presentation was very interesting, not just for the
fish porn, but for gorgous scenery and wildlife that doesn't appear in the travelogue videos.
Even though most of us will never get to go to the everglades his
presentation showed us how different fly fishing in that surreal envionment.
The November outing has been canceled due to weather predictions.
The Fall Trout Bout at Oak
Grove Park was a success. Weather was threatening but many people turned
out and had good conditions until about 11. As usual, most groups caught at
least one fish. Two brothers limited out, fishing with Senko rubber worms
and Powerworms. It’s not
always about soaking bait.
The Yuba ruver
outing quota has been filled. Fishmeister
Bob Fujimura is maintaining the list and has a waiting list if there are
any cancellations. Contact him if you would like to attend. This is a great secion of the river
that does not get a lot of pressure. Rainbows, browns, and steelhead
are large and feisty when they are in the mood to bite.
Our new officers for 2017 are President
-Jerry Neuberger, Vice-president -Cliff Hoover, Treasurer -Jason
Stapleton, Secretary Karen Keagy.
Information about department chairman and Board
members to follow.
December is Members’
Let the bragging begin!
On Wednesday December 14th the Delta Fly
Fishers will feature the fishing trips and adventures of club members from
2016. This year’s presentations will cover: What? Another state wild trout challenge, members
participate in Nevada’s Wild Fish Slam, trophy steelheading
in BC, trout fishing at Crane Prairie Reservoir and the surrounding lakes
in Oregon, kayaking the Pacific coastline in search of big rockfish, and
"what’s the big deal about permit fishing".
This promises to be an outstanding evening of exciting stories and
fish tales---some even true!
Remember, the December monthly meeting is our
annual members’ program night. This is your
chance to shine! You need not fish an exotic
location or catch giant fish to secure your place in history. Nor do you need to present professional quality
photos---a short talk about your past year's adventure (good or bad) is all
that is needed.
We still have space for other members to
participate and welcome you to join in! Please
call Al Smatsky at 368-9261.
The outing chairman and
interested members are making up the schedule for next year. If you have suggestions or are willing to be a fishmeister for one of the outings, contact Al Smatsky,
Jerry Neuberger, Bob Fujimara, or Steve Von Berg.
All help is greatly appreciated.
