A timely event since the Yuba River (a day trip away) is a premier dry fly fishery in the winter!
Clay Hash of Fly Fishing Traditions has been fishing the Lower Yuba for over 35 years. Fly Fishing Traditions is an educational guide service focusing on improving the skills of every angler. Fly Fishing Traditions offers floating full day clinics on the Lower Yuba River to help improve nymphing, dry fly techniques or Spey techniques. Clay has also worked with various fly fishing clubs to provide workshop on the Lower Yuba River. These workshops are offered for groups of 6-8 anglers.
Clay has been President of the Gold Country Fly Fishers of Grass Valley for 3 years and is currently the past President for the Gold Country Fly Fishers of Grass Valley. Clay is currently serving as Vice President of Communications for the Northern California Council of Fly Fishing International.
Clay currently teaches fly fishing courses through Fly Fishing Traditions,
The program, "The Lower Yuba Through the Seasons” will cover fly fishing tactics associated with the 5 seasons of the Yuba. My defined 5 seasons are;
(1) The Fall – September, October and November
(2) The Winter – December and January
(3) The Early Spring
(4) The late Spring and Early Summer
(5) The Summer
It will cover the insect hatches for each of the seasons as well as providing information on fishing techniques and fly patterns to match the hatch. This information is applicable for most Northern California rivers and streams. A handout will be provided listing the information covered in the presentation.
