Rondy: McCloud River Walk & Wade
Dates: October 15-17, 2019 although DATES COULD CHANGE DUE TO CONSERVANCY PASSES
Leader: Gavan Hennessy mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Number of anglers (excluding leader): 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
