    The East Carson fishout actually provides access to a host of streams and lakes including (drum roll please) the West Carson.

    The Indian Creek Campground is very nice, located right on a lake. The week after the Labor Day weekend the campground should be almost empty. For those of you who prefer something a little more luxurious there is Sorensen's just up the road.  Very nice place and a great place for an upscale dinner.

    This is all about trout fishing on relatively small water (of course, this year it may be a little different). So bring you 3-5wt, Tenkara or Czech rig.

    The river access ranges from very easy to challenging so there is something for everyone regardless of fitness or skill level - beginners are definitely welcome.

    I will plan on being in the Campground on Friday evening. The last time we did this outing we ate the majority of our meals in town but I am open to any suggestions.

    Two Day Float Tube and/or Pontoon boat Pyramid Lake (NV) Fish-out with with Rob Anderson
     October 8- 9th, 2017
    This is combined trip with GCCC. PFF needs 6 rods to fill the event.
    Signup deadline is September 15th 




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

    Experience level. intermediate to expert. 

    Fishmaster TBD

    Agenda Overview:

    Rob Anderson will lead a two-day guided Float Tube and or Pontoon trip at Pyramid Lake, Nevada.

    This lake has long been known for huge Lahontan Cutthroat Trout and its peculiarity of anglers standing in a lake fishing from ladders. Although "ladder fishing" is still the most popular way to fish Pyramid Lake, the introduction of the Pilot Peak strain of Cutthroat Trout in 2006 has helped put float tubing back on the map. The Pilot Peak fish tend to chase bait near shore in the fall. The last two years we have had some great fishing from float tubes and pontoon boats.

    We will be staying at a Reno, NV hotel (special rates) and carpooling from there to the lake. Breakfast and lunch are provided by Rob.

    Personal watercraft and a PFD shall be provided by each angler. All participants must have basic watercraft skills.


     a small tribal fishing permit is required and can be purchased on Rob's website (an NV fishing license is not required to fish this lake)


    Rob Anderson's website is: pyramidlakeflyfishing.com/group-and-club-outing

    • Truckee
    • 4
    The Truckee River fishout is back and will be on Saturday, November 4 this year. This will be prime time as the flows are great, the crowds are gone, the water is cool and the winter is (we hope) a few weeks away.

    We have two spacious houses available from members that can accommodate about 15 people on Friday and Saturday night. We will fish Saturday and some of the members will go out on Sunday. 

    Many of us will arrive on Friday afternoon or night, but early risers can drive up early on Saturday morning. Detailed logistics will follow as we get closer.  

    On Friday night we are welcome at EJ's place for food and drinks and on Saturday we will have a pot-luck at Rich Slade's house. The club will supply  the 3 B's, burgers, brats and beer.  The members supply the salad, appetizers and deserts.

    The Truckee and the Little Truckee are great rivers this time of year. Rods are typically 3-6 wt. Nymphing is consistently good, streamers are always a good bet and dries can be great or nothing depending on the day. Be prepared for all conditions. 

    Cost: $40 incl (most) food + drinks

    LUK Lake Fishout December 2 


    Rods Required: 6 to complete the reservation. LIMIT 10 RODS. Deadline to confirm November 30. Sign up now!!

    Experience level required: beginner to expert

     The cost is $135 per rod. 

    We are excited to be able to offer access to Luk Lake, formerly known as Coffee Cup Lake, a great wintertime and springtime rainbow trout destination and year 'round bass fishery.

    Lake Location:

    Luk Lake is a 65+ acre lake conveniently located just minutes from Interstate 5 in Corning, California, behind the Rolling Hills Casino. The lake's varied shoreline is lined with vegetation and flanked by the rolling golden hillsides of the Central Valley. Its low-elevation location keeps the lake waters (and outside air temperatures) moderate and comfortable throughout the winter and spring, providing ideal habitat for rainbow trout until the water temperatures grow too warm in the summertime. All year, however, Luk Lake exemplifies ideal bass habitat. It's not at all uncommon to land trophy sized bass, sunfish, and rainbow trout all in the same day at Luk Lake!


     Gear and Fly information :November through February:

    The winter season at Luk Lake is prime time to target its trophy-sized rainbow trout. Water temperatures remain ideal for trout feeding and active fish throughout these cooler months, and daytime temperatures are typically cool but comfortable for anglers, too. There's always a chance of wintry weather, so it can be a good idea to check the local forecasts before coming, but as long as it's not dumping inches of rain or extremely windy, the lake usually fishes great.

    The most consistent wintertime fishing is generally stripping leeches, woolly buggers, damselfly nymphs, or other streamer patterns on either floating, intermediate, or even full sinking lines. Still, it's not uncommon to observe cruising fish slurping emerging midges in the middle of the day, and Stillwater anglers with the patience to suspend midge larvae patterns under indicators frequently find this technique to be very effective. 4,5 and 6 weight rods recommended.

    There is a boat launch for anglers who choose to use their own float tubes. You are also welcome to launch your own small boats (14 feet long or less) if you prefer. Gas motors are not allowed, but electric trolling motors are acceptable. There are also boats available. Please contact the Redding Fly Shop to confirm 800-669-3474

    Luk Lake is over 65 acres in size, with numerous coves, peninsulas, and weed beds. The thick shoreline weeds provide ample cover and vegetation for the lake's resident bass and sunfish, and also provide food for cruising rainbow trout in the wintertime. Trout fishermen find that fishing small midge dry flies and midge clusters can be productive throughout the wintertime, as well as dead drifting midge patterns under indicators. Stripping small streamers and damselfly nymphs can be very productive, and also creates opportunities to catch bass. In the warmer months, fishing damselfly adults, dragonflies, frogs, mice, and bass poppers can all be productive for the lake's bigger bass.
