Fish and Friends at the 2013 Trout Bout
by Bob Fujimura November 16. 2013, Oak Grove Park -- Delta Fly Fishers members gathered at the Boat House at Oak Grove Park on Saturday to volunteer their help to run the San Joaquin County Parks and Recreation’s Trout Bout.This annual event provides urban trout fishing opportunities and designed to help introduce fishing to children and their families.Delta Fly Fishers have partnered with the County as their commitment to the public and have provided food services, fly tying demonstrations, and helped run the fishing contest.
Twenty-three members arrived as earlier as 5:30 in the morning to set up the canteen and help register the contestants.The number of anglers was lower than recent years probably due to less publicity on this event.In contrast, club participation was high and everyone enjoyed the socializing and sharing fishing stories.The cold temperatures caused an early run on hot drinks and donuts.This year’s we served hot dogs from Alpine Meats – we could tell the difference in quality.The chili-cheese nachos were a big hit and great value sold out quickly.
Dan McDaniel brought his granddaughter Andrea who helped as part of her high school’s community service project.Other members who attended this event were: President Marty Kjelson, John Highsmith, Jim Rich, Steve Von Berg, Jason Stapleton, Ron Forbes, Joe Balderston, Sam Thompson, Earl Summers, John Keagy, Harvey Hamlow, Mike Sansone, Larry Schmidt, Grady Lee, Walt Kotecki, Ed Sill, Bruce and Sallye Rollans, Bob and Jean Fujimura, and our newest member Tate McKenzie.Our group was led by Charlie Reames – many thanks to them and all of our members who volunteered their time.
