The President's Line...
Summer is over; Trout fishing is picking up everywhere, Bass are starting to begin their fall grab, Steelhead are moving up our inland waterways and lakes, streams and rivers are coming alive. Now that the heat is gone, we’re back in business and we begin our fall season with outings, classes, and presentations.
The monthly meeting will be on Wed. October 14th at 6:30pm Park Marina Events Center, 1800 Park Marina Drive, Redding (map), see you there.
Our guest speaker for October will be Doug Ouilette, Pyramid Lake guide. The lake is located just outside of Sparks, Nevada. Doug’s program is entitled “Pyramid Lake — Land of the Giants“. This will be a primer for an outing in March or April of next year. You’ll be amazed at the size of the Cutthroat Trout caught every year from the shore, some over 20 lbs.
Our beginner tying class will start on Tues. Oct. 13th at 6:30pm and will be held every Tues. for 6 weeks.
Our intermediate class is held monthly on the 1st Wed. of every month, at 6:30pm.
We’re starting our monthly Sat. tying beginning on Oct.10th. This class will be held on the 2nd Sat. of every month and will run all year long. Classes start at 9am. All tying classes are held at our classroom on Buenaventura Blvd.
This is also club membership renewal time. Watch for the notice soon. We’re announcing an “early bird” discount this year, renew your membership in Oct. or Nov. and pay $35.00. Family membership will be $40.00. This is $5.00 off the regular price.
Last months outing to Manzanita Lake was attended by 11 members. The weather was a little cool, a little windy and the fishing a little less than hot, maybe warm, or maybe luke warm or maybe slightly over room temperature. Not too many fish were landed but everyone had fun. We owe thanks to Jess Hoopes for a great lunch of dogs, chips, potato salad and some really great homemade beans.
Our next outing will be on Sat. October 17th, at Baum Lake. We’ll have more info and a signup sheet at the next meeting on Oct. 14.
The initial phase of construction on the clubhouse building will start this month, we’ll have an up to date report at the regular meeting on Wed. October 14th at 6:30pm.
Don’t forget, this is your club, if there’s anything you’d like to see or have us do, let us know.
