The Kelsey Bass Ranch fishout is on April 8 - a one day fishout to the Central Valley. For a comprehensive look at the fishout and for Jeff Lorelli's contact information see the fishout template in the File Sharing menu above.
And then later in April we are going to the Crosby Lodge and fishing Pyramid Lake - April 20 - 23. Walt McIntyre is looking for a full house for this fishout. That way we have the enire Crosby Lodge all to Flycasters. This is always a great trip - Thursday night everyone arrives and we have a pot-luck style dinner in the large tent. Everyone brings something to share and we all make plans for fishing the next day -
Friday morning breakfast in the tent - make yourself a lunch - fish all day ... and come back Friday evening to dinner provided by Crosby Lodge .... wash up and go back fishing until dark --- Repeat for Saturday --- Sunday morning breakfast in the tent - make yourself a lunch - and then fish some more and go home whenever you're ready.
Members who have already been up to Pyramid Lake say the fishing is spectacular - with some very large fish to be caught and released. All this for only $160 --- see the fishout template in the File Sharing menu above -
