Lower Colorado River Fly Fishing Adventures

Sean Says ...

My favorite way to fish the river out of Squaw Lake is primarily sight fishing.  It’s certainly not the only way I fish down there, but it’s definitely the most exciting.  I’ll describe the approach I take to find fish in gin clear water and how to sneak up on them to present the fly so that you can watch the eat.  The conditions down that way vary greatly so it’s not always possible but It’s constantly on my mind as I move from spot to spot through out my fishing day.   I’ll also spend time discussing the other ways we target fish you can’t see with emphasis on fast water deeper water techniques for hooking small mouth and striped bass.

About Sean ...

A Fly Fishing Family ...We are a family with over 60 years of fishing and boating experience. My grandfather was an amazing angler. He starting fishing daily in the late 40's after World War II. His love of the sport and the relaxation that fishing brings was contagious. He started us out fishing once we were old enough to walk in Cazadero, California.  Today, my sons and I fly fish every chance we get.  Come join us for a morning or afternoon you may never forget.

 

Fishing for us is more than a hobby, it's a way of life.

 

Would you like to be a 3rd Wednesday Speaker ???

Our programs chairperson Tim Huckaby says:

 

We have so much talent and expertise in the club that we have decided to augment our “normal” club meeting and presentation (every 1st Monday of the month) with a mostly club member presentation on the 3rd Wednesday of each month this year. Those of you that have joined the virtual club meetings you know we have had a lot of success. We sure have learned a lot and been entertained by some pillars of the fly fishing industry. Honestly, it has been easier for me to recruit speakers to do virtual presentations because I don’t take them out of their day jobs for stretches of travel to San Diego. We’ll continue our “normal” first Monday of the month meetings with “big name” speakers, virtually, until we can finally meet in person as a club again….which is not looking like any time soon. We have quite the lineup scheduled already for 2021. It’s not the same as meeting in person. I get that. I miss meeting in person too. But, the virtual thing is gonna’ have to do for while until the world gets ahead of the pandemic.

So…I’m on the hunt for you experts in the club that would be willing to do a virtual presentation and/or virtual Q&A for us on a 3rd Wednesday this year. Please contact me by email, programs@sandiegoflyfishers.com or my cell, 619-990-9200 to discuss. Don’t be surprised if I find you with a little help from other club members and proactively reach out to you for the ask.
