Please come and join our monthly meeting Wednesday March 9 at Orvis, Bridgeport Village 7:00pm Jeff Helfrich will be presenting on fishing the Rogue River.
Come here Bernie Taylor present “Timing of the Salmon” at our monthly meeting October 14th, 2015. Bernie is a widely traveled lecturer and writer whose work has appeared in angling and popular magazines, and academic journals in more than a dozen countries. Bernie has found that all plants and animals have their own sense of timing. In his presentation, Bernie shows that the salmon have precisely timed movements, and that critical events such as spawning can be calculated to almost the day. The presentation goes beyond the right flies and tackle, delivering an extraordinary perspective on how these animals navigate time and space.
The SFM outing in September was to the Fall River again. The weather was warm and the sun gods were with us. The aspen trees along the banks were in full Fall colors. The fish were staying fairly deep and not many were rising. Nine women were on this trip. Five fish were caught. It was great fun. The Saturday night dinner was awesome with spaghetti, caprese salad, garlic bread and a wonderful carrot cake. Thanks to all that came and made this a memorable weekend.
What a great presentation by our own Lisa E at our September monthly meeting. Members got to be “guest flies” and the audience had to guess what fly they were. Willa was a ‘natural’. her wings were not upright and she was not part of the Stonefly family. She was a Salmon Fly.
Susan U was “an artificial”. With that said, she was a nymph;a general attractor.; a bead head and…………. she was a Wooly Bugger.
Christine B was an “artificial”. She was not an emerger; she was subsurface; she had no wings; she was weighted and…….she was a Copper John.
It was a very fun, educational meeting and thank you to our guest presenter, Lisa E.
Four members ventured to Lost Lake near the Nehalem River. It was a beautiful day on the lake. Christine knocked em’ dead again. Her prize fish of the day (and ever) on a fly was a 22 inch steelhead which was bright and shiny. Way to go, Christine!! Let’s see if she can beat this record on the Wilson in July.
