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:  Eastern Sierra Backpack

    Dates:  August 19-25, 2018 although DATES COULD CHANGE DUE TO SNOWPACK  

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

    Number of anglers:  3

    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 3 experienced backpackers (4 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, Aug 19, 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:  McKenzie River

    Dates:  September 13-15, 2018  

    Leader:  Libby Wolfensperger  415-515-4231 mailto:elwolfensperger@me.com

    Number of anglers:  7

    Description:  The favorite fishery of many Deep Canyon Outfitter guides, the McKenzie River originates high in the Cascade Mountains exiting Clear Lake and travels 85 miles to its confluence with the Willamette. It flows through sharp rock and dense Douglas Fir forests creating a unique rainbow trout fishery.

    Rich in both fly fishing and white water boating history, the McKenzie is a great choice for all levels of angler. The sections of the river where our guides focus their fishing efforts are routinely stocked with rainbow trout throughout the spring, summer, and fall to supplement the beautiful native Redbands. You will be floating the river in McKenzie style drift boats, specifically design for fishing white water.

    After your productive day of fishing your guides will take you to a beautiful lodge right on the river where mouthwatering meals will compliment the already great day. The lodge, with showers and comfortable accommodations offers a level of sophistication to these fishing trips. Kick your feet up and enjoy a cocktail on the McKenzie with Deep Canyon Outfitters! 

    Our guides will be http://www.deepcanyonoutfitters.com/

    There will be a pre-meeting to discuss more logistics, gear, carpools, etc. (date tbd).

    Suggested Gear:  4-5 wt single handed fly rods, with floating lines

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $1,091.50  

    Other expenses will be guide gratuities, transportation, and lodging the nights before and after the trip. 

    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:  Klamath River Steelhead

    Dates:  September 19-23, 2018  

    Leader:  Don Forbes  415-717-2312  mailto:don.forbes@yahoo.com  

    Number of anglers:  7

    Description:  The Klamath is a beautiful river in a really wild section of California.  We will be staying in cabins at the Spey Gee resort, which is located about 1/4 mile below the Weitchpec Bridge, and the confluence of the Trinity River. From the resort there are a lot of options:  you can fish the water directly below the cabins, or drive a short distance up to the lower Trinity and fish the pools, just before it spills into the Klamath. You can also head upstream towards Orleans (14 mi) fishing Big Bar and in the town of Orleans which has some great fly water. From the cabins, you can drive 10 miles downriver to Young's Bar, and just beyond that Notchko. This is some of the best fly fishing water anywhere and we usually have the river to ourselves.  You'll have the option of walking & wading, or using a kayak or pontoon boat. We will have kayaks for four anglers, or anyone can bring their own kayak or pontoon boat. There will be a pre-meeting (TBD) this summer to discuss these options, as well as logistics, lodging, gear, etc.  

    Spey Gee Resort is http://klamathriveradventures.com/

    Suggested Gear:  This is a cast, swing, mend, and hang-on Rondy!  Long casts are a plus, but you'll find fish within 50 feet. Either 6-8 wt single hand rods, or 4-7wt spey rods, with floating lines, are recommended. Waders, boots with felt or studded soles, and wading staffs are a must!  It's slippery.  Don't forget to get a 2018 Steelhead card in addition to your California fishing license.

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $25  

    Other expenses will be transportation, lodging and food.  Cost per angler will be approx $70 a night for lodging. I will ask for volunteers to cook a meal on one of the nights. That option is much better than any of the local fare (very so-so) and even then would be 14 miles away.  

    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:  Nicaragua

    Dates:  Week of October 1, 2018  

    Leader:  Nick Strelchuk 415-505-3276  mailto:strelch@aol.com

    Number of anglers:  5

    Description:  The Rio San Juan begins its 110 mile journey to the Caribbean Ocean at the bottom of Lake Nicaragua. Along the way, Jungle Rivers pour into the San Juan. At the mouth of the San Juan where it flows into the Caribbean lies a beautiful fishing and eco-tourism resort, The Rio Indio Lodge. Built by local artisans, under the watchful eye of co-owner Dr. Alfredo Lopez, the lodge has for 2 years running (2015 and 2016) won the Trip Advisor Award of Excellence.

    The GGACC Rondy Program is for the first time offering an opportunity to fish the renowned Rio San Juan. The trip to the lodge, located in Nicaragua, departs from San Jose, Costa Rica.  We’ll be fishing in the Caribbean, on the San Juan River, the Indio River, in jungle lagoons and streams for Tarpon, Snook, Machaca and Rainbow Bass to mention a few of the main species.  The trip is for 6 days – 5 nights and includes 4 full days of guided fishing.  

    The trip will consist of 5 club members plus our leader Nick Strelchuk who has visited this lodge multiple times.  At 6 members total we will have the lodge to ourselves.  Here is a sample itinerary schedule which is roughly what we will be doing.

    Monday, Oct 1, 2018:  Arrive San Juan, Costa Rica. Airport pickup and overnight in San Jose.

    Tuesday, Oct 2:  6AM pickup for transfer to Lodge via a 30-minute chartered flight.          

    Fish Oct 2, 3, 4, 5.  Four full days of fishing, customized to your desires.

    Saturday Oct 6: Early morning charter flight back to San Jose for your flight home.

    See Rio Indio Lodge at http://therioindiolodge.com/

    TripAdvisor also has good information and reviews of Rio Indio Lodge

    Suggested Gear:  A 12 wt or heavier rod is advised when going for large tarpon. The snook, which can go over 20 pounds, can be fished with an 8 wt. There is lots of really fun mangrove fishing to do for snook and baby tarpon. The 8 wt would also work for the Machaca and Guapote although, for the sporting among you, a 6 wt will work.  Fast sinking lines for the large tarpon, intermediate sinking and floating lines for the other species  are suggested.

    There are 2 classes of boats at the lodge: Smaller river/lagoon fishing boats and larger 25 foot ocean capable boats for when the ocean does not safely allow you to fish the area around the mouth using the smaller boats.  All fishing is done from boats.

    A full packing list of suggested gear to bring will be provided for those going on the trip.

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $2900 (normally $3350) per angler - or $1395 (normally $1580) per non-angler. (This special pricing has been made available to the GGACC Rondy Program).  Included are:  Your first night’s stay in San Jose, all transfers, including the charter flight to and from the lodge, all meals, daily laundry service, plus a complementary rum and coke bar. For non-anglers, all eco tours and activities are included at no additional cost to you.

    Not included are: Your flight to and from Costa Rica, custom fees, tips, and personal expenses.  (Travelocity has round trip flights listed - as of January 2018 - from as low as $392 to $878. Southwest Airlines flies to Costa Rica.)

    We are asking that members who are interested in going to pay $25 now to register that interest.  If we get enough anglers to make the Rondy happen, we will ask anglers to book directly with the Rio Indio Lodge.  If we do not get enough interest the $25 will be refunded.

    Rio Indio Lodge's Cancellation Policy is as follows:  A deposit of 30% to 50%, depending on service, is required upon booking. The balance is due 90 days prior to scheduled arrival at Rio Indio Lodge. Deposits, less a handling fee of $250 per person, will be refunded in cancellations of 90 days or more from scheduled arrival date. In cancellations of 30 days to 89 days from scheduled arrival date, 50% of deposit will be retained. There will be no refund of any monies for “no shows” or cancellations received less than 30 days prior to arrival. In the event of a cancellation, and a substitute client is provided, no charges will apply.

    Rondy:  McCloud River Walk & Wade

    Dates:  October 2-3, 2018 although DATES COULD CHANGE DUE TO CONSERVANCY PASSES 

    Leader:  Robert Sorenson  510-325-8402  mailto:r.sorenson@comcast.net

    Number of anglers:  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:  Deschutes River #2

    Dates:  October 8-10, 2018  

    Leader:  Mike Souter 415-971-7561 mailto:mks@luminae-souter.com 

    Number of anglers:  7

    Description:  This Rondy, for 7 experienced anglers, is a 3-day guided float and wade fishing adventure on the lower Deschutes River in central Oregon, where we will fish for native summer Steelhead and "Red side" Rainbow Trout.  Guides will take us through miles of both calm and white water and scenic canyons where we will periodically take out to wade-fish streamers, nymphs, or dry flies, depending on the conditions (no fishing from the drift boats). 

    The trip will both begin and end in Bend, Oregon, at the Confluence Fly Shop, where we will meet our guides, get licenses and boat passes, pick up some flies, and park our cars (guides will shuttle us from the shop and back). We will put in near Madras (about an hour north of Bend) and then take out 3 days later near Maupin.  Our guides will be http://www.deepcanyonoutfitters.com/

    Bend, OR, is about an 8-1/2 hour drive from San Francisco. There is an airport in nearby Redmond for those who prefer to fly.  We should plan on arriving a day early and staying over the night after the Rondy.

    There will be a pre-meeting to discuss more logistics, gear, carpools, etc. (date tbd).

    Suggested Gear:  5-7 wt single-handed fly rods with floating lines, studded boots, wading staff, and a PFD (personal flotation device)*. Anglers must also supply their own sleeping bags, pillow, personal items, liquor, flies, and Oregon fishing license and boater's pass. Guides will supply tents, sleeping pads and cots. (*Note that wading on the Deschutes can be tricky due to the large angular basalt rocks.)  

    There will be a dedicated gear boat that will haul our gear, set up camp, and cook great meals. Personal items that are only needed in camp can be packed in a large dry bag to be supplied by the guides and transported in the gear boat.  Bring your own small dry bag (or waterproof pack) with a change of clothes, rain jacket, fleece, and any small personal items that you may want to keep handy in your boat.  

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $1,091.50  

    Other expenses will be guide gratuities, trasportation to and from Bend, and lodging the nights before and after the trip. 

    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:  Putah Creek Walk & Wade #1

    Dates:  October 13, 2018  

    Leader:  Patrick McDermott  415-793-0074  mailto:patmacster.fishing@gmail.com 

    Number of anglers:  6

    Description:  Putah Creek is a catch and release tailwater fishery located about 1-1/2 hours from San Francisco.  It is the closest wild trout fishery to the Bay Area and has some of the largest wild Rainbow trout in California, where 30+ inch fish are caught every year.  The plan for this rondy is to show you how, where, and when to fish this technical fishery.  This is not usually a dry fly venue, but rather a place where large trout like to eat very small nymphs on light tippets.

    After meeting at Putah Creek, there will be a short stream-side talk by the guide regarding how to hand-tie your own tapered leader for Putah Creek. You will then be split into three groups and will rotate through three different sections of the stream. Each of the sections will have a mentor or guide to show you how to fish that area.

    http://www.napavalleyflyguides.com/

    Suggested Gear:  5 or 6 wt, 9' or 9-1/2' fly rods with floating fly lines.  3, 4 & 5x tippet (2x will be supplied), split shot, indicators, wading staff (mandatory as some of the wading is difficult), sturdy waders, wading boots (felt soles with studs are recommended), rain jacket, plenty of water, and your lunch.

    We recommend purchasing at least two each of the following fly selection: Two-Bit Hooker size 16-18, Bead head Pheasant Tail Nymph 16-18, Zebra Midge 20-22, and any Soft Hackles 16-18.  

    Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $75
