Registration is closed

This Rondy is scheduled for 7:00-5:00PM on Saturday, October 1, 2016 on the O'Neill Forebay at the San Luis Reservoir State Recreation Area off CA-152 east of Gilroy (before Los Banos). You also have the option of staying later that evening and fishing independently.

This is a wonderful Striped Bass fishery. It holds the record for the largest Striped Bass caught in California.

Bill Scharninghausen will guide this Rondy.  As a well known Northern California guide, Bill already guides our LTFF and Rondy surf outings.

Personal watercraft will be required for this Rondy and wearing a PFD will be mandatory.  The Forebay can be very windy so a good anchor may be important for safety also. 

This Rondy is for experienced anglers only-- beginners and LTFF program participants are NOT invited.

Gear required:  A float tube or pontoon boat, waders, at least one wading belt, PFD, 7-9wt fly rod, fast sinking shooting heads (Bill likes an integrated shooting head of 250-300 grains for a 7wt rod), 15-20# tippet, clousers or other striper flies, your own lunch and drinks. You don't need a lot of gear, keep it simple.

There are options for both camping and motels. More on the logistics later. The cost for this Rondy is $70.00. 

There will be a float tube clinic conducted by George Revel at the club ponds during late July/early August (date tbd).
