The annual fly fishing film festival lands in Larkspur on March 10

Great photoraphy and sound.  Sort of like Warren Miller's ski movie for fly anglers! https://mailchi.mp/caltrout/if4-2020-announcement?e=50b7ea0d99

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!

April 7 and 8--Pyramid Lake  We are offering a new fishing opportunity for Pyramid Lake.  Guide Joseph Contaldi (Performance Anglers) and guide Doug Ouellette will be providing us a unique experience on the lake.  You get a custom ladder chair setup that comes with access to two 8 wt. rods: 1 sinking and 1 floating line, plus their custom tied Pyramid flies.  Hot fresh beach coffee brewing all day, shoreline gourmet meals breakfast and lunch, and cold bottled water!  All you have to do is show up and be ready to fish. This is concierge beach fishing at its best!  The cost is $225 per angler per day. Jeff Franzini is your host mailto:info@mttamflyfishers.org

May 1-3--Sugar Creek  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 info@mttamflyfishers.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 info@mttamflyfishers.org

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 info@mttamflyfishers.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.  info@mttamflyfishers.org
