Rondy: Putah Creek Clinic
Dates: May 5, 2019
Leader: Patrick McDermott mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Number of anglers (excluding leader): 12
Description: This Rondy will be structured as a "clinic", where Patrick will share what he knows about his favorite local river. This is not a fishing trip (although you will have time to fish it on your own after the clinic). The plan is to meet at the river where Patrick will share techniques, tackle choices, and the various access points. After the talk, you will have time to fish on your own. We'll also meet for a BYOB lunch midday.
About Putah Creek: Putah 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 following are helpful links:
Suggested Gear: After the presentation, should you want to fish on your own, you will need: 5 or 6 wt, 9' or 9-1/2' fly rods with floating fly lines. 3, 4 & 5x tippet, 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. Patrick recommends the following flies: 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 $25
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.
