Members,

Our November meeting is in just a day or two and things have changed significantly since our last meeting. The first snow has fallen, rivers have dropped from their higher summer flows and temperatures have cooled down. The cooler and nastier weather should bring out the BWO’s in the afternoons. Try nymphing with BWO patterns and midges in the morning and streamers on the darker ends of the daylight. The browns are gearing up for the spawn, so keep an eye out for redds and walk around them. With the upcoming spawn, the browns will be more aggressive and all the fish in the river will be looking for eggs, so an egg pattern would be a good option as well!

We just held our last Project Healing Waters outing for the year on October 23rd. Thank you to all who were able to come out and lend a hand. We have an upcoming project for November. We will be replacing and/or repairing the walkovers on the Weber River. Jack Campbell has done all the initial leg work to see which walkovers need work and to partner with the Utah DWR for materials. We will be meeting to construct, transport and erect the walkovers at several locations. Look for an email in the next few days with dates and times when you can help out.

Our program for November features Greg Loomis of Silver Creek Outfitters. Greg will be bringing a knowledge fly fishing the Sun Valley area to share with all of us. This area includes Silver Creek, the Big Wood River, and the Big Lost River, just to name a few. Silver Creek is legendary and many fisherman travel great distances to be challenged by the large, finicky browns and rainbows that inhabit this spring creek. Come out and see what the Sun Valley/ Ketchum Idaho area has to offer!

Mark your calendars! The Christmas Party is December 5th!

Tight Lines,
Mike
