Rondy: Putah Creek Walk & Wade #1
Dates: October 13, 2018
Leader: Patrick McDermott 415-793-0074 mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
The following are helpful links:
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
