Our December speaker, Steve Day, is from the Golden Trout Pack Station.
Steve is native to the region and spent his early childhood and young adult life learning how to hunt and fish. He took his first pack trip into the Golden Trout Wilderness to Summit Lake in 1990, fresh out of high school. From that trip on, he knew he wanted to run a packstation.
Steve spent his early years rodeoing and riding bulls, but slowed down eventually to successfully start and operate a landscaping business while running a small cattle operation and a 10-acre orange grove on the side. Steve now manages the pack station May-October and continues to run cattle in the off season. The one thing Steve loves more than riding trails on his trusty pony, is fishing the Kern.
In the presentation, Steve will cover some history and background on the Golden Trout Wilderness as well as the three heritage and native species you can catch on his trips: the Little Kern Golden, Volcano Creek Golden and Kern River Rainbow. He incorporates years of knowledge and experience on best areas in the fishery, water conditions, flies, gear and much more. He also covers what to expect on a pack trip, what kind of trips he offers and holds a Q & A at the end for any questions.
