A day of Shad fishing on the Sacramento River intended for 12 anglers with single hand rods(included switch rods cast overhead). This is a day trip.
We will meet in Hamilton City at the Irving Finch boat launch (http://www.dbw.ca.gov/maps/facilityinfo.asp?facilityID=974). Pay the day parking fee. Boats will depart by 7:00 am on Wednesday.
Gear--The single hand rods should be 6-8wt & stiff enough to throw 30 ft shooting heads. Carry Type 2-6 shooting heads. leaders are relatively short, 6-7 ft in length. The fish are not leader shy so you can go with 10-12# tippet.If you bring just one line, make it a type 4.The guides will have shad flies if you need them.
Bring waders, boots, hats, polarized sun glasses, sunscreen, layered clothing and rain gear. Hot temperatures or high water could change the dates of this Rondy.
Lunch & water will be provided by the guides (http://orlandoutfitters.com). Bring your own snacks.
You need the ability to cast a 30 ft shooting head. Anglers will be expected to rotate positions when wading so everyone can catch fish.
The cost for the Rondy is $160, plus gratuities. To sign up, just go to the club events calendar, click on this Rondy & follow the directions to register/pay.
