The speaker for our december meeting was Brian Endlich. He spoke on the
fishing the Trinity River for steelhead. He recommended the swing method
both with and without indicators. As a bonus he discussed the different
types of spey and switch rods and the specialized lines and heads for
these rods. He brought sample flies and I was most interested in the
'tube' flies. The fly is tied on a short piece coffee stirrer size tube.
This allow the fly tippet to pass through the fly and the hook to trail
the fly. So, hook size and style can be changed to fit conditions.
Thank You Brian!
Many club members are at the club annual outing in Bridgeport. This area
offers several lakes, two rivers(streams anywhere but california), and
many small mountain streams. The weather seems cooperative so it should
be a great event. If you want to drive up for one day, the group is at
Robinson Creek campground. Passes are open for 88 and 108 snd no snow to
make driving difficult.
The delta water temperature is still warm so black bass are active and
some stripers are coming in. Jerry Neuberger reports fishing topwater in
early mornings and doing well.
If you have suggestions for outings contact Steve Von Berg or attend one
of the directors meetings.
