Barrett Lake Outing

Last Update: 05/22/2022

San Diego Fly Fishers is going to Barrett!


On Friday June 24th our club will have exclusive use of the lake – SDFF members, friends and affiliate fly fishers! Each participant must pay the entry fee! To sign up, scroll down to the register/pay button.


You will pay $40 for entry to fish from your kayak or float tube.  You must also pay $40 for entry if you are fishing with someone who has already rented a boat, but .....  All 15 rental boats for this event have been reserved, no more will be made available.


It is especially important to specify the name of the person attending, especially if the payment will be coming from the credit card or Paypal account of a different person.  You will receive confirmation of registration by email.  Reservations are final and cannot be cancelled.  There will be no refunds if the named attendee does not arrive to check in on time. 


We will meet at the main gate at Barrett starting at 6am, where you will be checked in and sign a waiver (scroll down for directions and picture of the lake). At 7 am the gates will open and we will all go in to the lake as a group, and the gate will be closed behind us. Do Not Be Late! We have the lake to ourselves for a maximum of 8 hours, so everyone has to be off the lake by 3pm. You can leave earlier if you wish, you just have to get out of your vehicle at the gate and open it, closing it behind you.  


As you know, Barrett is a fantastic Bass and Bluegill fishery, with normally high fish counts for anglers. All flies will need to be barbless, as this is a catch and release only lake (and yes, you can get cited for using barbed hooks). Poppers work awesome in the morning, followed by black woolybuggers as the sun gets high in the sky.
