CANCELLED - Fly Fishing Skills Building - Fly Fishing Putah Creek

  • 14 Mar 2020
  • 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
  • Angler's Lodge


THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR THIS DATE.  The GGACC Board of Directors have decided to cancel this event in consideration of the City of San Francisco and Recreation & Parks Dept. guidelines to not hold large gatherings in Golden Gate Park to possibly prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Cost: free.  This event is open to the public to register. 

This Skills Building program is designed to enhance one's practical knowledge of the sport and to assist all fly fishers wishing to become more successful when out on the lakes and streams. Varying topics are presented by an experienced fly fisher with extensive knowledge about the specific topic.  

Unless there will be no program offered in a particular month, this event is typically held on the 2nd Saturday of each month following the free public casting lessons that month. Attendance may be limited to the maximum seating available for a particular program, so please register in advance of the event. 

In the March 14th Skills Building session, we will explore "Fly Fishing Putah Creek - Times, Tools, and Tactics."  The presenter is Robert George, a long time Northern California fly fishing guide and owner of the Bend Company Guide Service which specializes in Putah Creek, recently designated a California Wild Trout Stream, meaning that only single hook artificial lures are allowed (eg., fly fishing). Robert will discuss the best times and locations for pursuing rainbow trout in this tailwater stream which fishes year round outside of spawning season (Dec.1 - March 1).  Flies for fishing above and below the surface will be discussed along with strategies and techniques for presenting them. Come learn the latest tips on enjoying this beautiful and conveniently close trout stream.

All participants are requested to register for this event beforehand (whether or not there is any limit shown on the registration for this event) in order to gauge the expected size of the audience.
