The first full weekend of October - October 7 - 8 - Flycasters will be fishing for Striped Bass close to home at the O'Neill Forebay, San Luis Reservoir. Jim Knecht is the fishmaster and he has arranged for overnight camping the night of October 7th. The Forebay and San Luis Reservoir are home to world class Striper fishing. There are strict regulations regarding water craft so be sure to contact Jim Knecht for more information and to sign up.
Then October 19 - 22 Bill Hubbard is the fishmaster for the trip to Davis Lake - early fall is prime time for this northern California stillwater. There are still a few spots open so contact Bill Hubbard for details and sign ups -
Then in November you have the chance to go back-to-back on two great Steelhead fishouts -- Frank Eldredge leads the Klamath River fishout November 2 -5, and Jim Isaacson is fishmaster for the Trinity River fishout which is adjacent/overlap on November 5 - 8. Space is limited so contact Frank and Jim for details.
