    Image result for baum lake



    Join in for an early Spring fishout at Baum Lake in Burney Ca. Note: It will be cold, be sure to bring warm clothing!

    Easy directions Highway 5 to Redding then East on 299 for about 50 miles. About 5 hours form the Bay Area

    Anglers never need to wonder if they’re fishing in the right place. There are healthy populations of wild rainbows and browns, plus the lake receives generous allotments of hatchery fish throughout the traditional fishing season. The bounteous food supply even allows hatchery fish that elude capture long enough to grow to prodigious proportions. There is a five-fish limit at Baum Lake, any method of take is allowed (no hand grenades, please) and it’s open to fishing year-round.

    Meeting Place: Baum Lake boat ramp late Saturday Morning. We plan to fish as long as weather permits

    Gear 4,5,6 weight rods with your choice of floating and sinking lines. Bugs TBD

    Float tubes, pontoon or pram recommended.

    Skill Level Beginner to Expert

    Lodging: Shasta Pine Motel 530-335-2201, Charm/Green Gables 530-335-3300

    If you have questions please call Dan McMillan 650-678-7596

    See you there

    Two Day Pyramid Lake (NV) Fish-out
     April 8, 9 2018

    with Rob Anderson




    Equipment List and Agenda will be updated 2 weeks before the event.

    Experience level. intermediate to expert. 

    Agenda Overview:

    · We meet at the lake at a predetermined location. On the first day, we can also meet anglers unfamiliar with the lake at an easier place to find along the way. The guide(s) will be at the lake at day break unless other plans have been made due to weather. Anglers can show up at their convenience in the morning.


    · Breakfast is served at the fishing location on the beach around 8:30-9:00 am. Breakfast is a full hot meal along with coffee and juice.
    · After breakfast there may be a need to move fishing locations depending on the wind and the fish.
    · Lunch is served around 1:00 pm at the fishing location and ranges from homemade soup and sandwiches to burgers or wraps depending on the weather.
    · The guide(s) will stay with the group until late afternoon or later depending on the fishing.

    · Guide fees

    $245 including guide gratuity per angler for the two-day outing, with a 6-person minimum.
    · If the group reaches 9 anglers, then a 2nd guide will be hired for the first day and if the group gets to 12 anglers the 2nd guide will stay both days.

    What’s included:

    · Breakfast and lunch both days, including water, sports drinks, soft drinks and coffee
    · All necessary gear including ladders, rods and reels, waders, flies etc. It is a good idea if the anglers bring their own waders and rods if they have them.


    Accommodations:

    Last year the club stayed at the Nugget Casino and Resort.

    For Reservations please contact Jarre’ Payne Corporate sales manager at 775.356.3455 or 800.843.2427 Ext. 3455 or the hotel reservations desk and mention you are booking a corporate rate with PFF/Patrick Stauter and Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters as well. If you can call Jarre’ Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00 and use the reservations desk for last minute bookings.

    All you do is mention you are with Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters. There are several options for rooms including standard rooms, mini suites and two room suites. The rates at the Nugget are great and the location is perfect for fishing Pyramid. Free Airport Shuttle Service and Pick Up for Guided Trips as well.

    Anglers can also use our corporate account to get hotel rooms at a discounted rate at either the Silver Legacy

    (800-687-8733) or the Grand Sierra Resort (888-877-8944). When making reservations make sure you tell them you are booking your room under the corporate rate with Bucket List Fly Fishing. There is also camping at the lake if anglers have a hard-sided camper, RV etc. Days are long at the lake and the short 45-minute drive to Reno is recommended. Both hotels have 24-hour food, nice rooms and are a good choice after a lot of fishing at the lake. The rooms at the Grand Sierra are about $20 more a night but they offer a Junior Suite that has much more room for gear etc. for anglers sharing a room.

    Rob Anderson Bio

    Rob resides in Reno, Nevada and currently has his own fly fishing travel business, Bucket List Fly Fishing Adventures and is the lead guide and owner of Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters. Rob currently guides on the Truckee River in both California and Nevada, Pyramid Lake, Davis Lake, East Walker River, Frenchman’s and 4 different private waters. He regularly does speaking engagements on Pyramid Lake and other Northern Nevada and California waters and numerous “Bucket List” destinations around the world including an annual hosted trip to the Amazon for Peacock Bass. Rob is always willing and ready to educate fly fishing enthusiasts.

    Rob Anderson grew up in Virginia and was fishing from the time he can remember. At the age of 9, he learned to fly fish. From that point on, he fly-fished for bass and pan fish in Virginia as much as possible. After college, Rob pursued his other passion, golf, by working in that business for 15 years. During this time, he had headed west and settled in Lake Tahoe. In 1997, while still working in the golf industry, he was reintroduced to fly fishing by his friend Chris Evison. Chris taught him the art of fly fishing for trout in moving water. His love of the sport was reborn!

    In his free time from the golf business he regularly visited the Reno Fly Shop where he began learning how to tie flies (he is now a Signature Fly Designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants with over 20 patterns tied commercially). In the fall of 2001, the Reno Fly Shop offered Rob a part-time job which shortly thereafter, turned into a full-time position managing the retail store, private waters program and guide business until the Reno Fly Shop closed in 2010. The closing of the Reno Fly Shop resulted in Rob having more time and freedom in his pursuit of design, creativity and teaching in the Fly-Fishing industry.

    It was in 2003 that Rob pursued his interest in guiding at Pyramid Lake. Rob ultimately became the first non-tribal fly fishing guide at the Lake. Since that time has built a fly fishing specific website for Pyramid Lake, pyramidlakeflyfishing.com and runs the largest and most successful guide service there. Rob’s love of Pyramid Lake has also driven him to design Pyramid-specific flies which have increased the popularity of nymphing at the lake. Two of these flies are the Maholo Fly and the Maholo Midge which are sold at fly shops and retailers all over the West.

    Rob was able to incorporate his passion for food into the guiding experience through his private waters program and hosting larger group outings and clinics. This unique offering sets guide trips with Rob apart from all others. Rob has several programs designed for larger groups at popular fly fishing destinations like Pyramid Lake and Davis Lake. Lakeside Meals and guided fly fishing for parties of 10 or more are easy. Meals are usually gourmet and can be things like Biscuits and Gravy, Turkey Noodle Soup, Smoked Baby back ribs, Venison Burgers and much more.

    Whether you are a single angler looking to spend a half day on the water or a larger group looking for a unique fly fishing experience you will never forget, Rob is the man.

    To contact Rob you can email him at rob@bucketlistflyfishing.com or by phone at 775.742.1754

    Cost Per rod $180.00 . 8 rods minimum needed to signup to have a full BBQ option. 12 Rod Maximum for the is event

    INFORMATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE FOR 2018

    We will meet everyone at the Irvine Finch boat ramp in Hamilton City. Take I5 North to the second Orland Exit (HWY 32 to Chico). Go east on Hwy 32 ten miles to the town of Hamilton City. Go through town and before you get to the bridge, Irvine Finch boat ramp is on the right.

    Be ready to leave the ramp at Noon on Saturday. We will fish until 8pm or so.

     

    There will be snacks available through out the afternoon and dinner will be at 5:30-6:00PM. Dinner is a hearty BBQ chicken slow cooked in a barrel with green salad, fresh fruit, chips and salsa, dinner roll and cookies for dessert. We will have cold beverages available too.

     

    In addition to the check list,Dr. Shad Information.pdf the spey guys should bring 10 ft of T8 and T11 for their Skagit lines along with whatever lines they have. The shad can come closer and higher in the water column in the evening so bring your lighter lines too.

     Single hand guys can start with 30 ft of Type 4 shooting head with good quality running line ( Amnesia, Slick shooter, Varivas etc.).

     Shad can bite very light so a try to keep a tight line to the fly. After your cast slowly srtip in some line so you come tighter to your fly. You will feel more grabs if you do that.

     We will have flies for you to use if anyone needs them. 

     

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! 

     

    Thanks

    Link: http://www.stillwaterflyfishingadventures.com/private_water/digger_creek_ranch



    Here is a document by Bob Porter to give you an overview of the Property

    DIGGER CREEK RANCH

    This premier private water venue is nestled on the slopes of Mr. Lassen and with the record breaking snow pack that will provide chilly water all summer long, which is crucial for the trophy sized rainbows; with their beautiful coloring, and the gorgeous browns that inhabit the lakes.

    The ranch is perfect for every level of angler(s), heck while individual watercraft's and waders are not allowed, which is good. The lakes can be easily fished from shore making the trip even easier…just you, your partner(s), your rod and some flies. There are even nets available for your use. The lakes can accommodate up to 10 anglers per day, remember, when you book Digger Creek Ranch it is yours and yours only. There will not be any others while you and your party are there. You have complete privacy!!

    The lodge, which sleeps up to eight, includes a gourmet kitchen, restrooms, large living room, four bedrooms all with their own private bath along with satellite TV and a wraparound deck with a BBQ for your use. The property can be self-guided or you can have the services of one of our very knowledgeable guides to help you hook and net your fish of a life time!

    The upper lake is right outside the lodge and offers sight fishing with dry flies or indicator fishing.

    The second lake is a short drive down the property. This is a deep lake for streamer fishing and gets much less pressure.

    The lodge has 4 bedrooms with 4 ½ baths. There is a gourmet kitchen with several large tables. There is a firepit between the lake and the lodge. Gas and charcoal barbeques.

    5 wt rods are good with floating and sinking lines.

    Bugs TBD

    See you there

    We will make reservations for Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at the campground. We have several BBQ pits and have access to hot showers on the campground.

    Food and drink schedule: TBD at a later date
    ...

    Some of us will go up on Thursday afternoon to fish Friday and Saturday. If you don't like campgrounds there are reasonably priced lodging options nearby in Dunsmuir.
    Cost: $30/angler for food and supplies + campsite fee (depending on amount of tents)
