    Event Description: 

    This is the annual TVFF Club 3 night-4 day camping trip at Logger Campground, Stampede Reservoir with four days of fishing the Big Truckee, Little Truckee, and Milton Lake for rainbow and brown trout. It coincides with the peak of the multiple aquatic hatches in the area, and will include river wading opportunities and a day of either float tube or bank fishing at Milton Lake. Fishing techniques to be used include traditional indicator nymphing, Euro nymphing, streamers, and dry fly techniques.

    Registration is expected to be large so the camping group will be split up to fish the various locations during each day as to not crowd each other. We will be fishing the Big Truckee at Glenshire, Boca, Hirschdale and downstream in the Farad area with access via a 2 mile riverside trail. We will also be splitting into smaller groups to fish the Little Truckee on the main river in three separate locations, as well as the Boca inlet and Cave Rock. I will be asking a few folks to be assistant Fishmeisters on the trip for each group, and we will be providing maps as well.  The third group each day will be at Milton Lake off highway 89 near Jackson Meadows. And then we'll play musical chairs and shift the groups to new locations each day with full reports that evening over beer and scotch around the campfire.

    On this first evening, July 24th we may plan to have a local guide join us over dinner to discuss where, how to fish, and current flies that are working in the areas at that particular time. It should be a great kickoff for 3-4 full days of fishing in the area since we won't be going in "blind" to the conditions.  If so, there may be a slight incremental charge to cover the cost of the guide stopping by.

    Hatches during this period should include: Blue Wing Olives, Midges, March Browns, Red Quills, Mahogany duns, Green Drakes, Pale Morning Duns, Little Green Drakes (Flavilinia), Golden Stones, Little Yellow Stones, Spotted Sedge Caddis, Green Sedge Caddis, Saddlecase Maker Caddis, Micro Caddis, and the usual crawfish and baitfish (streamers) so a lot to prepare for. You may want to stop in Mountain Hardware in Truckee (an excellent selection of local guide tied flies) to check on their excellent reports and  superb fly selection, as well as anything else you may need for the week.

    Cost: 

    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 $40 for TVFF members and $85 for non-members and guests that includes an annual membership to TVFF.  

    Credit Card price: Price of $41.20 includes the payment by credit card with the 3.0% surcharge. Guest cost is $86.20 for non-members and guests that includes an annual membership to TVFF.

    Fishmeister:  Rob Farris, RFFarris@comcast.net. (925)286-5502.

    Accommodations and Food:  

    Campsite Reservations: You should make your reservations now. We have reserved a double campsites for TVFF  in Logger Campground (site #53) as our general staging and dinner area. The Club's double campsite can accommodate 4 tents and 2 non RV vehicles (extra vehicles cost +$5/day), so we are offering those reserved sites to the first 6 TVFF anglers that have signed up that are not bringing up their RV/motor homes.

    For those not on the list above or bringing an RV/Motorhome, you may want to secure a campsite at Logger Campground. Our site is located in the loop close to the kiosk check-in station and restrooms. Campsites are $23/night for singles and $49/night for doubles. 

    This campground on Stampede Reservoir (just above the Little Truckee) is quite popular and fills up quickly, so you should make your reservations as soon as possible to secure a site. The reservation site is listed below, as are the maps availability links.

    Each individual is responsible for their own food, however we are planning for a group potluck the first evening with a local guide joining us for dinner to fill us in on current conditions, gear, flies, etc.

    Gear and Tackle Recommendations:

    Rod & line weights/types: 4, 5 or 6 weight rods, reels and floating lines

    Leaders and tippet: Fishing style dependent but normally I fish a 9’ 4X leader and adjust with added tippet of up to 4-6’ of 5 or 6X for the dry flies.  The Truckee is home to large browns so if you plan on throwing some streamers you'll want a 5 or 6 weight rod as the current flow can require a stouter rod.  Lake fishing will be dependent upon your style as well.

    Other gear: Standard waders, boots, wading staff (for the Truckee), float tubes only allowed on Milton with no motors, and normal fishing wear.

    Flies: Flies to match hatches above and we will send out a more current list as we get closer to the dates and better understand how the weather and water are impacting the hatches.

    Current Fishing Reports (Mountain Hardware-Truckee):

    BIG TRUCKEE: Flows on the Truckee River are still in great shape. Water temperatures have been on the rise with these warmer days. Best times to fish are the early mornings, with the water temperatures being their coolest due to overnight cooling. Success is being had nymphing in the faster riffles. Fish are in these waters because they need the oxygen provided in this type of water. You can still get some fish by skating your caddis dries, but nymphing is still the best producer. Steamers are also a good bet in these faster riffles too. Ask the guys at the shop how to best fish theses, and don't forget about those crayfish patterns. It's busy out there on the water, so give your fellow angler plenty of space and don't crowd them. Release your trout as quick as possible and try not to handle them if at all possible. These high temperatures really stress out the fish. Try and be off the water by noon to help minimize the stress on them.

      

    LITTLE TRUCKEE RIVER: NO BAIT!!! NO SCENTED LURES!!! PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHER ANGLERS AND THEIR SPACE! PLEASE DON’T FISH ONE SPOT FOR TO LONG. CATCH & RELEASE PLEASE!!!

    FLOWS: 98.1 CFS!

    LITTLE TRUCKEE: The flows on the Little Truckee River remain at 95 CFS, at these flows anglers will have to be stealthy if they want a shot at these fish. Cox tippet, long leaders (12 FT) and accurate fly selection are all a necessity. As with most everywhere; fishing here will be best in the mornings and evenings. However, being a tailwater the water temps have remained relatively stead in the mid-60's.

    Event Description:    This event has been cancelled.

    Have you ever wanted to fish Alaska? I am sponsoring a Tag Along Fishing Trip to Prince of Wales Island in South East Alaska. The trip will be at Mike and Sarah Warner's, Coffman Cove Adventures. We will plan to arrive at Prince of Wales on August 28th and depart on September 5th.


    Mike is holding seven spots open for us until after the March meeting. If interested sign up on line or call me and bring a $700 check (no credit cards) made out to TVFF to the next meeting.

    Coffman Cove is located near two dozen rivers within 5-90 minutes from the cabins and each offers something different to anglers. Depending on the river, we will be fishing for Coho, Pink or some Sockeye Salmon or Sea Run Cutthroat, Rainbow or Dolly Varden Trout. Each fishing group will have a private cabin(s) with full access to the amenities of the dining cabin.

    The down payment cost of $700 is required at the next meeting (with the remaining $700 final payment due at the lodge), and includes the package below, with the group use of a vehicle (fuel paid for by guest). This is a great trip for people looking for amazing river action.  

    During the time we are there, it is expected that the rivers will have Coho, Pinks and some Sockeye Salmon as well as Sea Run Cutthroats, Rainbows and Dolly Varden Trout.

    Included in this package:

    • 7 nights lodging/6 days fishing
    • 3 home-style meals per day with a sack lunch
    • Fish cleaning and packaging with 2 fish boxes for transportation
    • Use of a vehicle
    • Transportation from the ferry or any float plane base on the island

    NOT INCLUDED:

    • Transportation to and from Prince of Wales Island
    • Alcoholic beverages or soda
    • Fishing licenses
    • Vehicle fuel
    • Extra fish boxes $35

    Cabins - During your stay with Mike and Sarah you will be staying in one of two clean comfortable two bedroom cabins. The Squirrels Nest and the Robins Nest both offer a private bathroom, two bedrooms, and a living area for relaxing or gear storage. A queen bed or full/twin bunks provide sleeping arrangements based on the makeup of your party. Coffman Cove Adventures can accommodate up to 7 guests in the 2 cabins but can have groups of up to 9 if all are in one party. Both cabins overlook a beautiful Southeast Alaska muskeg which has regular visits by deer, mink, marten, and eagles. All linens are provided and laundry facilities are available in the Dining Cabin. Cabins also have DirectTV and wireless internet.

    Dining Cabin - Breakfasts and dinners are served in the Dining Cabin. A sack lunch is also provided for your day of adventure on Prince of Wales. Breakfast will be served at the time of your choosing. For those on the run, quick meals such as oatmeal, cereal, fruit or toast are provided. For those who enjoy a hearty breakfast, we will provide a filling ‘farmer style’ breakfast. Dinner is also cooked around your schedule including fabulous home-style meals and desserts. Only one rule: no diets at Coffman Cove Adventures!

    Event Description: Interest Only until Finalized

    Image result for deschutes riverImage result for metolius river

    This is a six day trip to Central Oregon to fish key productive waters in the area, under the guidance and suggestions of Dave and Mary Ann Dozer (previous Club presenters and local residents). We will be concentrating on fishing the Bend area as well as staying in the same locale for the entire time.

    This event is for "registration of interest only" and does not require any financial obligations until such time as the trip details are settled, and there are no cancellation penalties until that time. Please register for the trip and choose the appropriate option that you are interested in for camping in the area, or sharing a local AirBNB/VRBO property. Once final details are settled the event will transition to a paid event where cancellation policies are in effect.

    The key areas of focus for fishing, as recommended by the Dozers are:

    1. East Lake – Located about 40 miles east of Bend. Probably the most consistent lake fishery in the Bend area, with some very nice brown trout fishing with chironomids, terrestrials, and streamers. Browns are typically in the 15” to 22” range.  It’s possible to bank fish but fishing is primarily done from float tubes and drift boats.  

    Optional Activity:  

    The cost for one day of guided lake fishing from a drift boat:  $500 for 2 people, or another local stream can be fished without guide services.

    2. Metolius River – Located about 12 miles west of Sisters (and 25 miles West of Bend). This is a beautiful spring creek fishery with great access and a renowned highly technical fishery for Browns, Rainbows, Whitefish, and famous Bull Trout.  The Metolius has great stonefly, caddis, and mayfly hatches but can tend to be a “Intermediate/advanced” fishery…lots of educated fish. The Metolius fishes well all season but the most notable hatches are in May (green drakes), June and July (golden stoneflies), and September (green drakes and little yellow stoneflies).  Guiding is not allowed on the Metolius River.

    3. Crooked River – Near the town of Prineville (40 miles east of Bend). A great tailwater fishery with primarily rainbows and whitefish. Tends to be more of a nymphing fishery than a dry fly fishery. Most fish are in the 8” to 15” range. This is fantastic water for EuroNymphing…mostly small nymphs in the #18 or #20 range.  Very good access for about 8 miles below the dam. This is relatively easy to figure out how to fish this water if you know anything about nymph fishing.  The key to this water is to know what flies to fish. The Crooked River probably has the highest fish count/mile of any of the local waters. The river would be fished on your own, or in concert with the clinic offered below.

    Optional activity:

    Mary Ann Dozer has offered a EuroNymphing Clinic on the Crooked River with a half day of on-the-water instruction and a half day of fishing on your own to polish up what has been learned. So, each person only pays for half of the standard guide costs. A typical example would be for 4 people, two people would be instructed in the morning (and fish on their own in the afternoon) and two people would be instructed in the afternoon (and fish on their own in the morning). So, the total cost would only be $450 for all 4 people.

    4. Lower Deschutes River – Located north of Bend about 30 miles and a premier Western River. The main stretch where you would fish is near the town of Madras.  While there is some, but limited bank access (some areas in a protected Indian reservation) for walking/hiking however this is primarily a drift boat fishery. This part of the river is larger water and wading can be a little challenging. Although this is a drift boat water, no fishing is allowed from a boat…fishing is only allowed from the bank. So, fishing is drift down a ways, get out and bank fish, then drift down further and get out again. This is great one day drift from Warm Springs to Trout Creek. The lower Deschutes is famous for its Salmon Fly hatch in May, but has great golden stonefly and caddis hatches as well. Fish are typically in the 10” to 20” range. June and September fishing can be especially good for some of the larger rainbows. Cost for a one day float on the Lower Deschutes River: $550 for 2 people.

    We are also planning a hosted BBQ and bamboo shop tour by the Dozers one night. Dave offered to host ,but depending on how much we use their guided services we may want to contribute to the food and drinks served.

    Cost:  

    The following costs are all inclusive estimates based on one guided float trip on the Deschutes River.  

    Total all inclusive estimated costs for the trip are $900 including guide fees for just the Deschutes river float trip, group meals, shared rooms (less if the group selects the camping option),  and estimated food expenses. 

    The Club will collect two payments for the deposit of about $200 by April 30, and a final payment of approximately $400 around August 1, 2019. The approximate remaining costs of $200 for individual meals, guide tips, and beverages will be paid separately by each individual as incurred.

    Cash price: Not applicable until final details are determined. 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%. If you do pay by cash or check, 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. For TVFF members, the Club managed cost for this trip is $______. For non-members and guests, the cost is $______ and includes a 12-month TVFF membership.

    Credit Card price: Not applicable until final details are determined. Member cost is $_______ including the 3% credit card fee. For non-members and guests, the cost is $_______ and includes a 12-month TVFF membership.

    Fishmeister: Todd Hyrn, thyrn@westernstatedesign.com, (562)755-0982

    Accommodations and Food: 

    Lodging will consist of either camping or an AriBNB/VRBO property depending on the level of interest for each alternative. Please register according to your preference.

    Gear and Tackle Recommendations:

    Rod & line weights/types: 4, 5, and 6/7 (Deschutes River only) weight rods, reels and floating and intermediate sinking lines

    Leaders and tippet: Fishing style dependent but usually a 9’ 4X leader and adjust with added tippet of up to 4-6’ of 5 or 6X for the small 18-24 dry flies. Overcast weather will also improve the steamer fishing with stronger and shorter leaders as usual.

    Other gear: Wading gear with potential changes of clothing based upon weather.

    Flies: Flies to match existing conditions and hatches.  We will send out a more current list as we get closer to the dates and better understand how the weather and water are impacting the hatches.

Outing Basic Requirements

Membership:  You must be a TVFF member with a signed Liability Waiver on file to attend an outing.

Personal Flotation Device Requirements: In addition, “Each participant shall wear a Coast Guard approved protective safety flotation device (PFD/SFD) at all times while boarding, disembarking or on board the watercraft” and those Outings where participants use owned, rented or loaned watercraft such as, but not limited to, boats, canoes, kayaks, prams, pontoon boats and float tubes.

The requirement applies to participants in any Guided Float Trip, and is also strongly recommended if you are wading challenging waters.

Guest Requirements

TVFF welcomes guests on many of its outings throughout the year. If you plan on inviting a guest please contact your Fishmeister who will advise you of any additional requirements for guests. Note that ALL guests must sign the Club’s Liability Waiver in order to attend an outing. The waiver is available on the website Member’s Page, and must be signed and sent one week in advance of the Outing to the Club’s Treasurer at TVFF, P.O. Box 2358, Livermore, CA 94551.

TVFF 2019 Event Individual 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.

Effective Date:

This policy is effective October 3, 2019.
