Event Description: Weekend only
Weekend only fishing the traditional Lake Almanor Hexagenia hatch in the late afternoon and evenings. Early and mid day fishing of local small creeks while awaiting the late, sundown hatches. This is a very exciting hatch and surface explosion of both large brown trout and bass just as the sun sets, so it is a frantic one hour period of time, with pre-hatch deep nymph fishing earlier in the afternoon.
We will meet up either early and drive or carpool up together, or meet up and fish at the Lake later in the day based on individual schedules. If you do not have the necesary Heagenia flies (both nymphs and dries) you should consider a stop in Chico at the FishFirst shop on the way up. They are very knowledgeable and have a good selection of flies. Fish First! 766 Mangrove Ave, Chico, CA 95929. 530.343.8300. email@example.com
This is primarily a float trip at the Lake for the Hex hatch and wading the high elevation small streams around Lake Almanor during the day. Please access local fishing reports for more information and suggestions.
Fishmeister: Chris McCann
Cost and Accommodations:
This is a full club trip so everyone will be responsible for their own accommodations, either in local hotels or a campsite. Last year Chris reserved a single campsite that accommodated four of us and this site will be updated with where we will be camping as soon as it is determined, and if a decision has been made regarding a larger group campsite, depending upon the number of registrants (additional cost required).
Cash price: You may pay by check or cash directly to the Club Treasurer within two weeks of registration and not pay the credit card surcharge of 3.0% if you desire. If you do pay cash you will be put into "Pending Registration" until your payment is received within the two weeks. Late payments will require you to register once again if there is space still available. The cost for this trip is $25 for TVFF members and $70 for non-members and guests that includes an annual membership to TVFF.
Credit Card price: Price of $25.75 includes the payment by credit card with the 3.0% surcharge. Guest cost is $70.75 for non-members and guests that includes an annual membership to TVFF.
We will meet up and carpool or drive individually from Pleasanton, or meet up at the Lake depending on individual schedules. It is approximately a five hour drive via I-5/Highway 36.
TVFF Cancellation Policy:
To sign-up for a TVFF Event that is currently open for registration and chargeable (as set by the Fishmeister), you must both register and pay online, or via check or cash, within two weeks of registering (sent to the TVFF Treasurer) whatever fee is described for that particular Event (trip) at the time of registration. There may be multiple payments required before the trip is actually taken (usually in the case of expensive trips), but it is necessary that you do make payment in the above timely fashion for the initial amount to secure your position on the trip. However, please note that you are still responsible for the entire amount of the trip if you should need to cancel.
Once you are registered, there are no refunds for chargeable Events and trips. In the situation that a member is, for any reason unable to attend, they may resell their registration slot to another TVFF member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists). New participants must come first from the waitlist in the order they signed up. The member cancelling is fully and solely responsible for contacting potential members to replace them and notifying the appropriate Fishmeister.
If an event/trip is fully registered and closed to registration, you may still sign up on the Wait List to be notified if there are any cancellations. In such a case of registering provisionally on the Wait List, you do not have to pay until such time that you clear the Wait List and are confirmed for participation.
