MONTHLY OUTING
July15-17, 2016
Edison Lake
Saturday Dinner at Vermillian Resort


This weekend is the July outing to Edison Lake. Specifically the Mono Creek Campground, a mile or so below Edison. I reserved two spots that will accommodate 12 or so campers. There is no fee for you club members for the camp spots. The club is picking up the reservations!!

This event was cancelled last year due to a lack of water. That is not a problem this year! All of the area streams are running strong for this time of year. It should be great! Local streams to fish include the San Joaquin River near Mono Hot Springs, Bear Creek and Bear Diversion Dam, Mono Creek, Jackass Meadows and the San Joaquin River near Florence Lake. You can also bring a float tube, or pontoon boat, and fish Edison Lake, Florence Lake, Ward Lake or Portal Fore bay. There are lots of options! The scenery is spectacular in this area.

The reservations at Mono Creek Campground are made for Friday night and Saturday night. The plan is to prepare your own meals..........except for Saturday night when the group will head to the Vermilion Resort on the shores of Lake Edison for a fantastic meal prepared by their staff.

Be prepared for all types of weather . I doubt it'll snow. But serious rain, hail, lightning and high winds are all possible. It's the high Sierra! Hopefully it'll be a normal July weekend and the temps will be in the high 70's, low 80's.

If you plan on attending, please let me know so I have a ballpark idea on who's coming! Thanks!!

Who We Are

Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation is the oldest fly fishing club west of the Mississippi River. Fresno Fly Fishers is a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage and assist those who desire to learn more about the art of fly-fishing. Our club includes some of the finest fisherman, fly tier’s, fly casters, and professional guides in the Central Valley, and is comprised of people of all ages, from beginner to expert level.

Our Mission

We are a FEDERATION OF FLY FISHERS affiliated club, a national organization whose goal, like ours, is to promote the wonderful sport of fly-fishing as well as protect our natural resources. We promote catch and release, education, conservation, and above all, encourage and help those who desire to learn more about all aspects of fly-fishing.
Fly Fishers for Conservation (FFFC) was organized in 1961 by a group of devoted fly fishers deeply concerned with the preservation of trout and all game fish, their environment, and the quality of fishing. Our club has maintained two goals since that time: To foster and promote the sport of angling with artificial flies. To protect, conserve and increase our angling resources.
