    Updated 9/14/2018

    The McCloud is a true California gem, the best California has to offer, and a world recognized fishery. Early fall is great times to fish this river. Personally, 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 any time. Please note that this 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, at times, can be a very challenging, too.  It is important to know your limitations and also slow down a little while hiking and wading.

    There is a special surprise this year for Grizzly Peak Fly Fishers.

    Please contact me if you have any questions.

    Enjoy, Todd

    • Sinbad Creek near Pleasanton

    We'll spend Saturday, October 13th helping The Alameda Creek Alliance map and collect data along Sinbad Creek, a tributary of Alameda Creek.  This involves walking the creek channel (dry that time of year) collecting data on the type of banks, opportunities to plant trees, culverts, stormwater outfalls, and invasive plants.  We'll also tackle several trash hotspots. 

    Grizzly Peak will provide snacks and water that morning.  Afterward, we'll enjoy a deli picnic.  

    Details to follow.

    • Ah-Di-Nah

    Updated 1/1/2018

    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 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.

    Tight Lines!

    GPFF Holiday Dinner 
     Tuesday December 11th

          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.

    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.

    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
