August 14th, Oak Grove Nature Center
It’s all about the bugs. The August membership meeting will feature a multimedia show about the most frequently found insects in the Sierras that trout love to eat. Have you ever approached new water, be it a lake or stream and wondered, “Where do I start?” If it’s in the Sierras you’re probably targeting trout. And most trout are insectivores. (They eat insects). So, a basic knowledge of the most common marine insects can be a great help. If it’s a stream, you’ll probably want to wade in and turn a few rocks. If it’s a lake, you’ll want to find the “littoral zone” (where the plants grow) and see if you can find any hatches or surfacing fish. Even if you are unlucky enough to be skunked when doing your basic stream or lake research, a knowledge of the likelihood of finding certain types of “bugs” in the water will help. The program will be presented by the club’s president, Jerry Neuburger and will feature, a PowerPoint presentation of both photos and videos of common Sierra insects and where and when to find them. Handouts will be available as well. The program will take place at the NATURE CENTER, Oak Grove Park, on August 14 at 7:00pm. For those new DFF members who have never been to the park, just mention at the gate that you are a DFF member and you’ll be admitted without a fee. The Nature Center is just to the right of the admission booth. Historically, this meeting draws only a portion of our regular membership so no raffle or refreshments will be offered. Remember, if you haven't paid your dues, you can do so at this meeting and be part of the early bird raffle for the $100 gift certificate from Sportsman’s Warehouse.
