Members,

As 2017 ends, I want to thank all those who helped make it High Country Fly Fisher’s best year yet.

Our 2017 lineup of trips included Sand Hollow Reservoir, the Green River, Washington Lake, Strawberry Reservoir, and Island Park, where Eric Luna caught this lunker (actually a bait fish if you go by the sign). eric

This year, our trips will focus on providing (a) opportunities for both moving water and stillwater fishing, (b) better outreach to attendees so that no one is left to fend for himself, and (c) venues that lend themselves to more socializing and better buddying up opportunities.

Our Stillwater group, through which its members arrange weekly outings and share fishing reports, has been joined by a new River and Stream group, which we hope will meet with equal success. Let us know if you would like to join either group.

Our Stillwater Group has gone down kicking and screaming, with a few of our heartiest fishing late into December. Here’s John Schultz with a 22” walleye taken from Starvation Reservoir taken December 19.

Our 2017 conservation and outreach programs included planting willows along Mud Creek at Strawberry Reservoir to protect its banks, a cleanup day at Strawberry, sponsoring several trout hatchling tanks through Trout Unlimited’s “Trout in the Classroom” program, and fishing and fly tying clinics.

We will have similar volunteer opportunities in 2018. Come on out and help. It’s a great way to get involved and make some friends.

Come check us out. We promise to welcome you and never question the size of the fish you claim to have caught.

Tight lines,
Dave Allison
