The President's Line...
I just returned from the International Sportsman’s Expo in Sacramento. Lots of things to see, many new products coming soon. The buzz of the show was, of course the recent rains and the possibility of more on the way to fill up all those empty lakes and aquafers in the north state. For the first time in several years, I’m seeing the ski racks on vehicles instead of bike racks.
We’re very fortunate here in Redding that our main fisheries, the Sacramento an Trinity Rivers which were off color for a few days, clear up quickly, we don’t have to wait long to fish them.
At the time of this writing, more storms are predicted for the first week in Feb. and hopefully will bring more snow to pack our mountains and insure a good runoff this year. The down side off all the rain is that our clubhouse has been put on hold until the site is dry enough to allow the crane to bring in the trusses for the roof. As soon as we get them and inclose the building, we can get started finishing the project.
Our program for the February Monthly Meeting will feature Andrew Harris from Confluence Outfitters and Eagle Canyon Trophy Trout Lakes, his presentation will be on the Pit River. This is one of the best wild trout streams in the state and will cover the river from its’ source all the way to Lake Shasta. The meeting will be on Wed, February 10th at 6:00 pm for social hour with the meeting to follow at 6:30pm.
Intermediate Fly Tying will be on February 10th, at Half Time Pizza in Palo Cedro. See Jim Gunderson for details. See you the 10th.
