Our August Speaker is Katie Osborn, the recipient of the Bill Carnazzo Fellowship award in fisheries science sponsored by Granite Bay Flycasters at Humboldt State University. Katie is a graduate of UC Davis and is currently finishing her masters degree at HSU.
For the past five years she has worked with juvenile fishes in estuaries, at the critical interface of marine and freshwater fisheries, which serve as migration corridors for anadromous fishes, nursery areas for flatfish and rockfish, and as seasonal feeding grounds for a diversity of marine species. Her lengthy study focused primarily on the Mad River Estuary where she documented for the first time which fishes are there and when, and also studied their diet to link fish populations to their invertebrate prey.
It’s been a hot summer and with the heat comes the snow melt which has our rivers running fast and the sierra lakes are mostly at 100% capacity. Remember water temperatures are also very cold. DF&W has started fish plants throughout the sierra lakes.
Our fishmasters have been busy organizing a great variety of fishouts over the next 2 months. Check out this list for August with further details on the website. Signups will be available at the August 10 general meeting so get yourself a partner and go fishing!

Of course, fishouts don’t happen by themselves and we always have a need for fishout leaders. So, if you have a favorite fishing water, please consider stepping up and lead a fishout. It’s not difficult and there is plenty of help from experienced leaders to organize one. Contact me if you’re interested.

“Three-fourths of the Earth’s surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.”
