The Spokane Fly Fishers meet on the second Wednesday, September – April, of every month at 7 pm at:
ST. FRANCIS SCHOOL
1104 W. HEROY
APRIL 12TH, 2017 MEETING
For those of you wondering if we are having an Extravaganza Meeting we aren’t. However we are haveing a meeting that has the meat and potatoes portion of past Extravaganzas, so don’t miss our next Spokane Fly Fishers Meeting on Wednesday, April 12th, where both lake and river fishing opportunities will be addressed and fill your fishing information plate!
We have two speakers scheduled: First, Sean Visintainer, owner of Silverbow Fly Shop, will cover fishing on the pristine Idaho Rivers of Kelly Creek and the North Fork of the Clearwater, followed by Randall
Osborne, Region 2 Fish Biologist for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, reporting about lake plants and lake fishing opportunities in Spokane, Lincoln and Whitman Counties.
Sean will lead off the evening speaking about two treasured rivers in our area: Kelly Creek and the North Fork of the Clearwater. As is typical of slide presentations by Sean, his report will include access, time of year to fish, where to camp and, most importantly, how to fish these fabled waters, including expected fly hatches, fly selection and successful fly fishing techniques. Randy will follow up with a detailed report and slide presentation about lake plant numbers, water levels and fishing conditions, and recommendations on which lowland lakes are likely to produce good numbers of fish this year.
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, so jot down anything you would specifically like to know, and bring those to the meeting. Chances are, if you want to know, others do, too. These speakers are noted for their expertise and knowledge of these fishing habitats and are expected to give you a bit of a fishing “edge” this year.
