Lake Almanor is a large reservoir in northwestern Plumas County (northeastern CA). The reservoir has a capacity of 1,308,000 acre-feet and a maximum depth of 90 feet. Our leader John Anderson has been fishing at Lake Almanor for one week each year for the past 25 years and has caught more large trout fly fishing there than any other place west of Montana.
There is room for 8 fly fishers on this Rondy.
This Rondy is for experienced anglers ONLY and is NOT for current participants in the Learn to Fly Fish Program or other beginners.
The fishing can be done either wading from shore or with your private watercraft (from float tube to motor boat). PFD's are required!
We will be stripping streamers & soft hackles, fishing dry flies, and drifting nymphs at the mouths of the Hamilton Branch and Feather Rivers. Bring 6-8 wt fly rods, with both floating and sinking fly lines.
Lodging options are camping, motels, or renting a house. This will be determined by the group going on the Rondy. There will be a pre-meeting a month or two before the Rondy (tbd). Carpooling options will be discussed at the pre-meeting.
The cost for the Rondy is a non-refundable $25 fee, plus the cost of travel, lodging, and meals.
