Event Description: Sunday November 21, 2021
This is the annual TVFF Club Fall Striper outing on Sunday, November 21st. This is for members who have a boat and their member guest. Others can contact me and I’ll put you in contact with any one who has room in their boat for another angler.
These fish are great fun on a fly rod.
This is a great opportunity to experience hard pulling, double digit freshwater fish on fly gear. We will fish the Southern bays of Discovery Bay in the AM and after lunch move to the sloughs and canals around the area. Plan to launch out of Orwood Resort by 7:00AM. You should arrive at least ½ hour earlier in order to set up and get your boat in the water. We will head South about one mile to the Kellogg Creek entrance of Discovery Bay. This is an all-safe 5 mph area and it works well for both small and larger size watercraft.
The outing will take place dependent on weather. If we’re rained out it will be rescheduled. Plan on a cold morning and the possibility of morning fog for a few hours.
We will provide more information as we get closer to the outing and we can get more specific as the stripers keep moving in, which usually starts around mid to late September. It is looking like a good season this year with lots of stripers being caught out in the ocean and bay!
Cost: $25 plus, $15 launch fee and your gas and food

Accommodations and Food: Responsible for your own food (Suggest hot soup )
Gear and Tackle Recommendations:
EQUIPMENT: Equipment: 8, 9 or 10 wt. rods with Hi-Speed / High Density shooting heads. Lead core heads, Teeny 300-400, Rio Outbound or SA Custom Tip Express lines trimmed to match the rod all work well. The integrated style lines and tungsten heads are easier to cast than lead core. Your leader is simply 5-6 ft of 15 - 20 lb mono (Maxima).
FLIES: Flies that simulate baitfish patterns such as 3-5 inch Clouser Minnows, Flashtail Whistlers, Deceivers, etc. work well. The 2/0 chartreuse and white Clouser is a standard. Take a look at at Dan Blanton’s Board for what is currently happening.
