The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable; a perpetual series of occasions for hope.
- John Buchan
We are hoping to host a movie night May 6th from 6 to 8 at the Lodi Police Station Community room if CDC guidelines permit.
Join us for popcorn and water as we watch the Fly Highway. We will all be pitching in to order some dinner too!
All are welcome!
Jon Baiocchi Outings
You asked for it! We arranged it! So many participants of the December tying day asked for a follow up outing with Jon on one of the lakes he presented on at the tying day. We have arranged a summer outing and a fall outing.
The outings are limited to 6 participants. Cost is $150 per angler. Fee is only refundable if the outing is cancelled. You can transfer it to another angler if you are unable to attend. Make your reservation by clicking the link below!
Only 4 openings left for the June outing!
Only one opening left for the October outing!
One Fly Contest on May 9
Come out and participate in a friendly stillwater fishing tournament between our club and the Calaveras Fly Fishers. Our CFF hosts will arrange with CDFW to stock White Pines Lakes with plenty of hatchery rainbow trout prior to this event. A sign up sheet for this event will be available at DFF club events until the deadline for RSVP Calaveras Fly Fishers on May 4. Club members who cannot sign up in person can contact Bob Fujimura via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rules for the competition, directions, and suggested fishing gear will be sent to each person on the sign up sheet prior to the event. We'll also have a pre-event informational meeting for members who are new attendees on Wednesday evening April 29. Registration or lunch fees will be paid on the day of the event on May 9th. DFF participants must have a current liability waver on file and use a PFD if they fish from a personal watercraft.
Eastern NV Stillwater Outing - May 18-23
Bob and Jean Fujimura will host DFF members to fish some noteworthy reservoirs and lakes in Northeastern Nevada. They have experienced annually some awesome fishing days for trophy rainbow trout and smallmouth bass, and 2019 was no exception. Bob and Jean will be returning to Wildhorse State Park and have made the arrangement with guide Rob Anderson to extend his mostly closed (to his valued clients) two-day outing to DFF members during May 18-19. The price is $250 and includes most meals. This paid guided option is not a requirement for joining the DFF club outing but is highly recommended if you are not familiar with fishing the lakes in this area.
The club outing will focus primarily on Wildhorse Reservoir which has received over 126,000 hatchery trout over the last 12 months. There are several other lake and stream fishing opportunities available to members who attend. This outing is geared toward intermediate level fishers with some experience with stillwater fishing from a boat or personal watercraft. Contact Bob Fujimura at email@example.com to sign up and for information on this outing. Bob will send more details to members on the sign-up list and offer a pre-outing organizational meeting with the participants in early May.
