Date: February 11, but we will update based on water conditions.

Place: Hope to fish either the Upper Kings or the Merced, but again will update based on water levels.

March: "BBQ"

Hosted by Hank Urback and Bob Papazian. This is a fun outing and the rumor is that this year the big fish are back!

Date: March 11, but we will update based on water conditions.

Place: Kings river behind Avocado lake but again will update based on water levels.

Due to Heavy Rains, the trip was postponed until

Date: April 22, 2017


Unfortunately, the weather is not going to cooperate, as they are forecasting rain and strong winds for Saturday.
Rain and high winds will keep us of the water.
So we are postponing the Striper outing for a few weeks until Saturday, April 22.
If you are planning on attending

EMAIL me at lclabbe@comcast.net
I need a count to make sure that we have enough burgers for all attendees.
Also all attendees are requested to bring a small side dish like a salad, fruit, desert to share with others.

We will meet in the parking lot of the launch area.

"Still Water trout"

This is a favorite of many club members; usually, lots of fish for everyone who participates. Float tubes, kayaks or canoes are a must to get to the fish. All you have to do is find the right fly! Bring a lunch!

Date: May 13

Place: Hume Lake

"Float Tubing"

Another great fishery! You can fish from shore, but with the water levels, as high as they are you probably depend on your “roll cast”. This is a great place to use Float tubes, kayaks or canoes! There are many campsites available in the area. Bite is always better at sunrise or sunset; so come early and stay over!

Date: June 10

Place: Courtright or Wishon

"Woman's Outing"

This Outing will be hosted by Jack and Sue Leveque. This is always a fun day; we meet at “Big Meadow” a place that our club restored. The fish are small but eager. Many small meadow ponds connected together by an aquifer. It is best to use waders to get around. Mostly, short cast required!

Date: July 15 Moved to August 5 because of high water conditions…..

Place: Big Meadow

August: "Camping in the high Sierras"
We get the opportunity to fish streams, lakes and even little creeks. We will rent several campsites for both Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday Dinner at Vermillion resort; time for story-telling and setting plans for the next day.

Date: August 18 - 20

Place: Edison Lake and area

"High Mountain Adventure"

John Cameron will be hosting this outing. Make sure to bring lot of water and fowl weather gear. There are always fish to catch; mostly Brookies with a few Rainbows! Easy hike about 3 miles each way with a gradual change in elevation. If you plan on staying the night you’ll need a permit. You can also do the loop and hit 4 lakes and about 7 miles total.

Date: September 9

Place: Dinky Lakes
