Gate Closure Time Change
During the winter months, the Granite Bay State Park will close and lock its entrance gate at 7:00 pm. Our general meetings at the Club House will be affected by this policy, so please be sure to be inside the park before 7:00 pm, or you will miss the meeting.

Phil White is a California native and an outdoor aficionado. His youth was spent in the outdoors fishing, hunting, hiking and, ever the optimist, panning for gold. During his twenties, he quickly made his way up the ranks and into a career of fly fishing. Later he formed his own independent fly fishing guide service, Fish Habit Outfitters, located in Old Fair Oaks just a few hundred yards from the American River and provides guiding services throughout California.
His guiding focus is mainly on the American River and, since the winter steelhead run is fast approaching, this will be his program’s timely topic. He’ll be covering general fishing tactics and rigging; also, flies, access, gear and local knowledge. Basically, everything to help you be successful on the American or any other steelhead river.
Greetings to all.
How about those speakers we’ve had these last two months? Thanks to our program chairman, Ed Lloyd, we have received great information about what’s happening and how to fish our local rivers.
What’s up next!
Eric Palmer’s clinic on “All about Leaders” is scheduled for November 21, 2017.
Jim Holmes’ fly tying jam is also scheduled for November 21, 2017 at the same time in the activity center. This is a real two-fer. Learn how to make a leader and what to tie on it, all in one night.
There are two fishouts remaining for 2017:
• Veterans Day Delta fishout – November 11 at Discovery Bay, hosted by Doug Kytonen.
• Trinity River Steelhead fishout – Weaverville/Douglas City will be December 3-5, hosted by Corley Phillips.
Information on both of these is in this issue of The Leader with full details on the website.
Get ready for the annual Chili Cookoff and Swap Meet coming your way December 2nd. See John Hogg’s article here in The Leader.
Don’t forget to bring your spouse/friend and your finest cooking to our Holiday potluck dinner. That is our regular meeting night of December 14th with usual club matters kept to a minimum and a time to socialize with fellow club members. It’s a wonderful way to wrap up the year and one you won’t want to miss.
Reach out, find a partner and go fishing!
