We have some terrific trips and programs coming up for you. If you are interested in one or more of our trips, now is the time to let us know!
THE APRIL 7 & 8 PYRAMID LAKE TRIP IS CANCELLED. The Paiute Tribe, which controls the lake, has shut down fishing with no reopen date.
May 1-3--Sugar Creek
This trip is subject to cancellation for Covid 19 reasons. Watch this space for updates.
Sugar Creek Ranch property's unique 114 acre landscape was dug up from the adjacent Scott River during the gold mining days. This cold, gin-clear water provides ideal habitat for the large rainbow trout that call these lakes home. Sugar Creek itself winds through the property. Set at 3,000 feet, the ranch remains relatively cool in the summer and the climate and fishing is simply majestic during the spring. Sugar Creek Ranch is located at the confluence of Sugar Creek and the Scott River in the Scott Valley of Northern California's Siskiyou County. Private water--about $140 per day. A cabin is available to share. For more information contact Jeff Franzini at firstname.lastname@example.org
May 18-20. Wild Horse Reserve is back for a second year. This is a guided trip to please all stillwater anglers. Eastern Nevada has some of the most prolific Stillwater Fisheries in the West. Most of them are still relatively unknown and have very little fishing pressure. The outing costs $225 per angler for a 2 ½ day experience covering Stillwater techniques, proper rigging, and shore line wading as well as float tube, pontoon boat and small pram techniques. There will be lots of free time to practice and catch some big trout and bass. Jeff Franzini is your host and contact for this one. Contact Jeff at email@example.com
June 3 and 6. Shad with Frank Duarte is in its 7th year for the club. Frank takes five anglers on his jet boat up the Yuba. You will fish where others cannot get in, and the scenery is beautiful. This should be a great year given the early spring we've had. Cost is about $200 per angler. Reservations are required--contact Jeff Franzini firstname.lastname@example.org for more!
June 21-27--Montana's Missouri River The club's premier annual trip to America's premier dry fly river. Guided fishing for 3 days; two days on your own. Meals, lodging and guide fees all for about $1,500. Roy's your host. email@example.com

WRONG PLACE, WRONG MINE
In spite of a deeply flawed permitting process, the United States Army Corps of Engineers is on track to finish their review of the proposed Pebble Mine before the end of the year. If approved, the mine would put Bristol Bay—the greatest intact salmon ecosystem in North America—at risk. The Corps has heard from us, the United States Senate has heard from us, and now it's time for the White House to hear from us. We signed Save Bristol Bay's petition telling President Trump to deny the permit, and we think you should too!
