OUTINGS

 

By popular request, we have reserved the Yuba River for exclusive use of our club on March 12 and 13, 2022. We can have up to 20 members on this private stretch of river that weekend. 

There is lodging to be had in Yuba City as well as in Grass Valley. 

The sooner you sign up for this trip, the less likely you are to be #21, waiting at home hoping someone else opts out. 

This is a link to the water we will be fishing that weekend. Take a look at it, and sign up. Cost is just $50 per person for both days. Link

Past year’s  outings

 

The outing to First Dinkey Lake was a success. Luckily for us, the smoke from wildfires had not yet polluted the air, the weather cooperated, and fish were caught in a beautiful High Sierra setting.    Here are a  few pictures:

More Past outings
January outing Sycamore Island:  We went to Trout Pond on January 25.  Trout Pond  is a new one for the club. Sycamore Island does not open to the public until February, so we had the place to ourselves. 
Thanks to Sarah Parkes and Bill Tuell of the Sycamore Island park for making this outing possible. I think most of us came away knowing about a new place to fish close to home.
Address to Sycamore Island:  39664 Avenue 7 1/2, Madera, CA
