Rondy: Upper Sacramento River Walk & Wade #2 The Dick Swanson Memorial
Dates: June 20-21, 2024
Leader: Mike Downing mailto:email@example.com
Number of anglers (including leader): 9
Description: This Rondy is a memorial for Dick, to acknowledge the truly kind human being he was, for the time and energy he gave so freely to the club, and the way he touched people with his gentle grace and soul. When you fish this river, stop and listen, and take in the beauty that’s around you; you’ll know more about Dick than any words can tell.
The Upper "Sac" is everything a freestone trout stream should be: It has riffles, pocket water, long runs, and deep pools. It is a wonderful "walk and wade" river that flows 37 miles from Lake Siskiyou to Shasta Lake. Rondy leader Mike Downing will lead 8 club anglers to show them good places to enter and fish the river. We will meet the first day at 7:00AM at the Ted Fay Fly Shop, located in downtown Dunsmuir. We will make a short drive to the river.
Suggested Gear: 4-5 wt single handed fly rods, with floating lines for dry flies and nymphing, 4X-6X leaders, 5X-7X tippet (Mono or Flourocarbon), split-shot, indicators, and flies. Full wading attire and staff. Weather is always changeable - Be prepared.
Cost: The fee for this Rondy is $25
Other expenses will include travel, lodging (there are several motels and campgrounds in the area - more information will be forthcoming), meals, and perhaps, the purchase of a few flies while in the fly shop (to help support the grateful owner Bob who personally ties most of his flies).
Cancellation Policy: There are no refunds. In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists). It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction. This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.
