    McCloud - May 25-29, 2018 (Fri-Tue). Skill level: Intermediate to advanced, but you must be in good physical shape, and comfortable in moving water and on slick rocks.
    Todd Pond, fishmaster, toddpond@ymail.com, (cell) 510-520-4485. 


    The McCloud is a true California gem, the best California has to offer. The spring is a great time to fish this river, If we are lucky, we may get to fish the salmon fly hatch.


    I know the river very well. I plan on camping at Ah-Di-Na if there are spots available, if not, I will be in the over-flow camping area. This trip is weather/river condition permitting and may get canceled at anytime. Please note, that is river is located in an isolated canyon, down a dirt road, 7 miles. Most cars have no problem driving to Ah-Di-Na, although a truck or SUV is better. Also, most of the river has a nice trail to hike on, but please be aware that the hiking is not easy due to rocks, inclines and vegetation. Wading can be a little challenging, too.  It is important to know your limitations and also slow down a little while hiking and wading. This trip is open for all levels of anglers from beginner to pro.


    NOTE: This outing is located far from medical services, in a remote canyon where wading is difficult and injuries are not uncommon. This outing is a fun trip that will test (and hopefully improve) your angling skills, but it is not recommended for beginning anglers, those with limited wading skills, or people with health and fitness issues.


    Please contact me if you have any questions.
    Enjoy, Todd

    North Fork of the Yuba River - June 1-3, 2018 (Fri-Sun). Skill level - beginner to intermediate. Camping and lodging nearby. Fishmaster: Adam Williamson


    It's fun to fish under foliage on the banks and work the weird riffles between Downieville and Sierra City.


    GPFF strongly encourages car pooling. Contact Adam to coordinate rides, or, more generally, if you have questions.

    Look here a few weeks before the trip for the fishout sheet.

    East Walker Pick-up Trip June 8-10 (Fri-Sun) - Todd Pond



    Come fish the East Walker June 9th and 10th. I am planning on fishing the Nevada side Saturday, and California Sunday. I know this river well. The East Walker is a world famous fishery that is known to harbor some beautiful rainbows and browns. It is one of the more difficult places to fish. Roll casting 30-60sf, perfect drifts with tiny flies, reading the water, accurate casting, and presenting streamers in the right place, are  the keys to success. When executed properly,  the rewards are dumbfounding. Come test your skills!  Even though advanced fly fishing skills will help your success rate, they are not mandatory for catching fish. All levels are welcomed, although basic casting, rigging, and wading skills go along way. Most likely, I will be camping in  Nevada Friday night, and getting a hotel, in Bridgeport, Saturday night. This trip is weather/river condition permitting, limited to 5 anglers, and may be canceled at any time, for any reason. Waders, and wading staffs are recommend, due to, at times, difficult wading. Also note, this is located in a very rural area, no cell phone coverage, and altitude around 6500-5500.  Do not hesitate to contact
    me, for question, recommend flies, and meeting places.


    Enjoy, Todd

    Smith River - June 25-29 (Mon-Fri). Skill level - intermediate. I expect to be camping, but there are motels in the area. Fish master - Rich Miller


    Fish the beautiful Smith River for sea-run cutthroat and resident cutthroat and rainbow trout.


    By the end of June, the flows in the Smith are typically down near their summer lows and the regular season has opened, making the main forks of the Smith as well as all the tributaries available for fishing.  The water is still cold enough for the fish to feed actively during the day and the wading is easy.  There is excellent road access to the main stem and the lower portions of the middle and south forks, and smaller roads follow the upper middle fork and many fine tributary streams.


    GPFF strongly encourages car pooling. Contact Rich to coordinate rides, or, more generally, if you have questions.  Look here for the fishout sheet a few weeks before the trip.

    Tuolumne Area Streams - July 29 - Aug 2, 2018 (Sun-Thu) Skill level - beginner to intermediate. Group camp at Saddlebag Lake Campground. Fishmaster - Dan Zimmerlin.


    This is our traditional Tuolumne Meadows trip, but we were only able to obtain camp sites at Saddlebag Lake, which is quite attractive in its own way, and hardly any further from  the streams.


    High Sierra fishing. Streams in the area include the west slope Upper Tuolumne River and its Dana and Lyell Fork tributaries, and the east slope Mine and Lee Vining Creeks. There are a number of accessible dammed lakes and many natural high mountain lakes for those willing to hike.


    GPFF strongly encourages car pooling. Contact Dan to coordinate rides, or, more generally, if you have questions.  The group camp allows parking for only 10 cars.  These spaces will be allotted first to cars with 3 occupants, then 2, then 1.  There is overflow parking at a modest distance if we exceed the 10 car limit.

    Look here a few weeks before the trip for the Fishout Sheet, which will contain final details, fishing and flow information.

    McCloud River - Our annual October Caddis outing.October 25-28, 2018 (Th-Su). Skill level - Intermediate to advanced(difficult terrain). Ah-Di-Nah Campground. Fishmaster - Kirston Koths.


    The McCloud River is absolutely beautiful this time of year. And the fish love the big caddis flies that should be hatching, especially the migrating (big!) browns. Just cast near a the edges and watch your fly explode!

    NOTE: This outing is located far from medical services, in a remote canyon where wading is difficult and injuries are not uncommon. This outing is a fun trip that will test (and hopefully improve) your angling skills, but it is not recommended for beginning anglers, those with limited wading skills, or people with health and fitness issues.


    We will have a potluck dinner on Saturday night after sunset, followed by a campfire gathering with special activities.


    GPFF strongly encourages car pooling. Contact the fishmaster at koths@sbcglobal.net to coordinate rides, or, more generally, if you have questions.


    Look here for the fishout sheet a few weeks before the trip. Here are maps of the Conservancy, the river from the dam to Ah-Di-Nah, and the upper river loop.

    GPFF Holiday Dinner 
     Wednesday December 12th

          Our Holiday Dinner will be held on the regular Wednesday night meeting in December, beginning at 6:00pm. This is a well attended informal evening and a chance to get to know other club members. Please consider inviting someone you do not know well to sit at your table.

    The chair person for this event is Linda Friedman. Since parties are not organized on a wing and a prayer, GPFF needs your help.  If you can volunteer, please choose one of the options when registering on the website. Most volunteer spots are full, but we need a few more for clean-up. Please volunteer.

    HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
    GPFF supplies turkey, salmon and ham. Soft Drinks & beer, at the regular donation, will be available. You may bring your own wine.

    You will be asked to bring either an appetizer, salad, side, or dessert dish. This will be determined after sign ups are complete.

    HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
    Register on the website!
    You must RSVP by December 9th.

    Non club members are welcome to attend. We just need to know how many tables to set up and the number of people to plan for.



    Thank You
