Rendezvous (Rondy) Program

The GGACC's Rendezvous (or Rondy) Program offers group fishing trips (called "rondies") for those active club members who are already experienced fly fishers and wish to participate in these club-organized fishing trips for the companionship they offer and the opportunity to fish these venues.  Active club members are those who have already paid their club dues for the calendar year.  Experienced fly fishers are considered to be those who have done considerable fly fishing on their own without requiring guides or other necessary help.

Participants may include recent graduates of the "Learn to Fly Fish" Program, but not any current LTFF registered students or any other beginners. Unlike the LTFF Program's educational outings (called "fish-outs", to distinguish them from the rondies), the rondies are not mentored outings.  The rondy leaders have only organizational responsibilities for leading their groups, and not teaching duties.

To sign-up for a rondy that is currently open for registration (i.e., when the Register button shows on the Calendar Event description page), you must both register and pay online whatever fee is described for that particular rondy. You do not have to pay to sign up on a Wait List, which is automatically generated online whenever a rondy's maximum registration limit is reached (and the Register button disappears).  

There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.

See the links under this tab for the list of all Rondies currently shown on the club's calendar.

    Rondy:  North Fork Stanislaus River Backpack

    Dates:  July 19-21, 2018 although DATES COULD CHANGE DUE TO SNOWPACK  

    Leader:  John Anderson  mailto:john_anderson@lanset.com

    Number of anglers (excluding leader):  8

    Description:  

    The goals of this North Fork of the Stanislaus Backpacking Rondy are to:  Give anglers a chance to catch some beautiful wild Rainbow & Brown trout; fish in an area that gets very little pressure; backpack through some really gorgeous terrain; have fun together; sit around a campfire (five miles from the nearest road) and tell fish stories; and sleep on the hard ground -- unless you bring a pad! 

    This two-night backpacking trip starts Friday at 12 noon with a 5 mile hike down into the (North Fork) Stanislaus River Canyon. There are no hiking trails in this area that are maintained by the Forest Service, so anglers will have to do some bushwacking. The camp site is located on the river and overlooks a 100 yard pool that holds some nice trout. There is surplus fire wood, so we can have a camp fire. We will camp at the same site for two days. 

    This rondy does involve a challenging hike down a steep river canyon so participants should be experienced backpackers and be fit enough to climb out of a 1000' canyon with a pack. The hike in and out should take about 3 hours each way.

    Participants must bring their own gear and already know: How (and what) to pack for a weekend; how set up your own tent; how to cook outdoors; how use a water filter; and how to read a map and use a compass. There will be a pre-meeting to discuss the needed gear and other logistics (date tbd). 

    Suggested Gear:  2-5 wt single handed fly rods, with floating lines. 

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $25  

    Other expenses will include your own transportation and food/supplies. 

    Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.

    Dates:  September 8-14, 2019 although DATES COULD CHANGE DUE TO SNOWPACK  

    Leader:  William (Brad) Bradford  415-923-7601  mailto:bradford@realpropserv.com

    Number of anglers (excluding leader):  5

    Description:  This Eastern Sierra Rondy is a 5 night backpacking trip (away from home at least six nights) to fly fish a small watershed located out of Mammoth, CA. This rondy is limited to 5 experienced backpackers (6 including the leader). We will fish both lakes and creeks along a 20 mile loop and spend more than one night at one campsite. The fishing will be walk & wading on the streams and casting from the lake shores.

    The plan is to spend Sunday night, Sept 8th in Mammoth and then hit the trail. We will meet at the Mammoth Ranger Station first and then hike out of and return to the Devil's Post Pile Ranger Station.  This 20 mile loop has an elevation gain of about 2000' and tops out at about 9000' elevation. The first night campsite is about 2-3 miles in, where we camp on King Creek. Other days can be more uphill and longer. Pack light!

    You will need all the normal backpacking gear to take care of yourself on the trail.  We will share some gear such as stoves, water filters, etc.  Bring your favorite fly rod for fishing small rushing creeks, a pooling meadow, and deep-shored lakes. There will be opportunities to fish with dries, nymphs, and streamers.

    You must also be an experienced backpacker and have the ability to hike with your pack up to 6-8 miles daily on rough trails.  The leader is an experienced backpacker.  However, the expectation is that all participants in this rondy will be self sufficient.  There will be a pre-meeting to discuss logistics, gear, shared food, etc.  The date for this pre-meeting is tbd. 

    Suggested Gear:  2-5 wt single handed fly rods, with floating lines. 

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $25  

    Other expenses will include your transportation, food/supplies, and a small shuttle fee to the trailhead. 

    Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.

    Rondy:  Upper Sacramento River Walk & Wade #2

    Dates:  October 12-13, 2019  

    Leader:  Greg Someson  mailto:gregsomeson@hotmail.com

    Number of anglers (excluding leader):  8

    Description:  The Upper "Sac" is everything a freestone trout stream should be:  It has riffles, pocket water, long runs, and deep pools. It is a wonderful "walk and wade" river that flows 37 miles from Lake Siskiyou to Shasta Lake. Rondy leader Greg Someson will lead 8 club anglers to show them good places to enter and fish the river on October 12 and 13.  We will meet on October 12 at 7:00AM at the Ted Fay Fly Shop, located in downtown Dunsmuir.  We will make a short drive to the river.

    Suggested Gear:  4-5 wt single handed fly rods, with floating lines for dry flies and nymphing, 4X-6X leaders, 5X-7X tippet (Mono or Flourocarbon), split-shot, indicators, and flies. Full wading attire and staff.  Weather is always changeable - Be prepared.. 

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $25  

    Other expenses will include travel, lodging (there are several motels and campgrounds in the area - more information will be forthcoming), meals, and perhaps, the purchase of a few flies while in the fly shop (to help support the grateful owner Bob who personally ties most of his flies). 

    Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.

    Rondy:  McCloud River Walk & Wade

    Dates:  October 15-17, 2019 although DATES COULD CHANGE DUE TO CONSERVANCY PASSES 

    Leader:  Gavan Hennessy  mailto:hennessygavan@gmail.com

    Number of anglers (excluding leader):  4

    Description:  We will take 4 experienced anglers to the lower McCloud river at Ah-Di-Nah campground, to the Nature Conservancy, and Ash Camp.  Because of their incredible vigor and resilience, the McCloud River rainbow trout have been transplanted and established themselves in many of the greatest fly fishing locations in the world.  The famed October Caddis emergence may be underway then, and those who have witnessed clouds of these 1.5-inch-long flies laying eggs on the water in late afternoon will never forget it.  For dry-fly aficionados, the McCloud can be surprisingly good. Both high-sticking and long line nymphing also work very well. Targeting big Brown trout migrating up from Lake Shasta with large streamers is a real treat.

    This outing is not for anyone with serious medical conditions since the stream access and wading are difficult, and the location is far from medical services.  There is no cell phone reception in the McCloud River canyon. At this time of year the weather usually is very cool and could be wet.  Everyone will be staying at the Ah-Di-Nah campground.There will be a pre-meeting (date TBD).  

    Suggested Gear:  4-7 wt fly rods with the usual lines, leaders, etc., to fish dries, nymphs, and streamers.  You'll also need a wading staff, sturdy waders, studded boots, warm clothing, and a rain jacket.

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $25  

    Other expenses will include travel, food, and a small campground fee. 

    Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.

    Rondy:  East Walker River Walk & Wade

    Dates:  October 25-27, 2019  

    Leader:  Paul Kromhout  mailto:pkromhout@comcast.net

    Number of anglers (excluding leader):  7

    Description:  Walk & Wade the East Walker River below the Bridgeport Reservoir dam and across the Nevada border.  We'll fish the section immediately below the dam and continue downstream to the Rosachi section on the Nevada side.  Streamers, nymphs and dries will all be on the menu.  We'll be looking for Rainbows and big Browns.  The East Walker is a year-round stream and produces some very large fish.  This Rondy is unguided.  Paul will take you to a few different places on the river and demonstrate various rigs for pursuing these well-schooled trout.  This Autumn trip is intended to avoid the heat of Summer and miss the high flows of the early snowmelt months.  While more moderate flows mean potentially easier wading and, hopefully, more active fish, participants should be in robust condition for wading as the river bottom can be rocky and slippery. 

    We intend to camp either near the river or adjacent to the Bridgeport Reservoir.  There will be a nominal per car fee/per day for camping.  The East Walker is in the Eastern Sierra at about 6000 ft.  In late October, it will likely be cold at night and may be cold in the daytime, as well.  Participants should be prepared for cold and perhaps, wet, weather. 

    Supplies:  While we will certainly attempt to coordinate efforts, participants should plan to bring an independent supply of water, food and personal items.  The town of Bridgeport has a few stores, restaurants and motels and is a short drive from our fishing area.  Bridgeport is a 5 hour drive from San Francisco, depending on traffic and route.  Ken's Sporting Goods in Bridgeport is a go-to spot for everything, including Nevada fishing licenses ($19 for 1-day, approx. $7 each extra day; $81 for 365-day non-resident). 

    Suggested Gear:  Either 5wt or 6wt 9ft fly rod.  Either floating or DT line for nymphs and dries and a sink-tip line for streamers.  Waders, boots, wading staff, hat and glasses are a must.  Camping gear as required.  Our camping may take place on roads requiring high ground clearance.  Please plan to coordinate your drive with someone owning an appropriate vehicle.

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $25.00.  

    Other expenses expenses will include transportation, camping fees, meals/food, fishing licenses. 

    Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.

    Other expenses will be guide gratuities, transportation, lodging.  We also do an optional no-host dinner on Saturday night at the restaurant in Indian Creek Lodge for anyone who would like to attend.
