Fly casters set fishout

by Rosemarie Middendorf

The High Sierra Fly Casters will hold the second fishout of the year on Saturday, March 24, at Indian Creek Reservoir, gathering for breakfast, hosted by the group, at Denny’s Restaurant in Minden at 8 a.m.

All members and their families, along with others interested in the sport of fly fishing or any who might like to have a try at it, are invited.

After breakfast, participants will car pool to Indian Creek Reservoir in Alpine County, Highway 89 south of Woodfords about 4 miles to the airport turnoff.

Current reports indicate good action on browns to 20 inches and rainbows to 17 inches. Fishing is good from either the bank or float tube. Current hot setup is reputed to be a black Wooly Bugger with either a Prince Nymph or Pheasant Tail dropper.

Advice and instruction will be offered by club members. Lunch will be provided at around 12:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories, including the most fish caught (and released), biggest fish and the recently-created Mike Matuska Small Fish Award. Other prizes may be awarded according to the whim of Fish Master Jim Norton.

Needed are warm clothing and a California license.

For information, call Norton at 782-2277 or 783-1914.
