The goals of this trip are: 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 rondy has room for no more than 8 anglers.
This backpacking trip starts with a 5 mile hike down into the 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 & use a compass. There will be a pre-meeting to discuss needed gear and other logistics (date tbd).
Basic fly fishing skills are required. Not for the "Learn to Fly Fish" participants or beginners. The fee for this Rondy is $10. To sign up, go to the club events calendar for June, click on this Rondy & follow directions to register/pay.
