Outings & Events Calendar

Welcome to the club's calendar. We encourage all members and their guests to join us for any of our outings; however we do require that each guest sign the club's liability release. Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly meetings.

Outing Basic Requirements

Membership:  You must be a TVFF member with a signed Liability Waiver on file to attend an outing.

Personal Flotation Device Requirements: In addition, “Each participant shall wear a Coast Guard approved protective safety flotation device (PFD/SFD) at all times while boarding, disembarking or on board the watercraft” and those Outings where participants use owned, rented or loaned watercraft such as, but not limited to, boats, canoes, kayaks, prams, pontoon boats and float tubes.

The requirement applies to participants in any Guided Float Trip, and is also strongly recommended if you are wading challenging waters.

Guest Requirements

TVFF welcomes guests on many of its outings throughout the year. If you plan on inviting a guest please contact your Fishmeister who will advise you of any additional requirements for guests. Note that ALL guests must sign the Club’s Liability Waiver in order to attend an outing. The waiver is available on the website Member’s Page, and must be signed and sent one week in advance of the Outing to the Club’s Treasurer at TVFF, P.O. Box 2358, Livermore, CA 94551.

Cancellation Policy

To sign-up for a TVFF Event  that is currently open for registration and chargeable (as set by the Fishmeister), you must both register and pay online, or via check or cash, within two weeks of registering (sent to the TVFF Treasurer) whatever fee is described for that particular Event (trip) at the time of registration. There may be multiple payments required before the trip is actually taken (usually in the case of expensive trips), but it is necessary that you do make payment in the above timely fashion for the initial amount to secure your position on the trip.  However, please note that you are still responsible for the entire amount of the trip if you should need to cancel. 

Once you are registered, there are no refunds for chargeable Events and trips.  In the situation that a member is, for any reason unable to attend, they may resell their registration slot to another TVFF member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  New participants must come first from the waitlist in the order they signed up.  The member cancelling is fully and solely responsible for contacting potential members to replace them and notifying the appropriate Fishmeister.

Effective Date: October 3, 2019

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Protocol

TVFF Outings Policy as of September 20, 2020

As a Club, the Tri-Valley Fly Fishers have developed and agreed to a set of required guidelines, protocols and rules in order to help direct our members on how to stay safe for one-day outings, multi-day outings, or individual “Tag-Alongs”.

These protocols were developed by the TVFF Board of Directors with input from other local clubs, which included a member virologist, various safety committees, and member experts. We feel that these protocols and guidelines are consistent with public health information and experts. These protocols are assured, observed, and enforced by outing leaders as well as members themselves. Extra masks, spray disinfectant and sanitizer are available from the outing leaders.

Please note that the Tri-Valley Fly Fishers accepts no liability for inadequate protection or the transmission of Covid-19 among members or guests. Therefore, each member should review the following protocols that the Club subscribes to and make an individual decision of whether to participate in an activity or not, based upon their individual circumstances and requirements for personal and family member safety.

TVFF Outings protocols are as follows:

  • If you are sick with cold/flu symptoms then we ask you to please stay home
  • All attendees should drive up and back alone unless you are in a mutually agreed social bubble where both parties have been tested negative and agreed to the risk (such as family members)
  • On all outings the Club will have available and use an infrared thermometer for temperature checks
  • We believe in social distancing and require that all members keep a full fly rod distance of at least 6’ distance between parties
  • We ask that all parties wear masks if within 6’ even if only briefly. Note that the CDC has not recommended the use of buffs or gaiters as the material is not thick enough for adequate protection.
  • Everyone will be responsible for making, bringing, and consuming their own separate food and drinks
  • When camping all members and guests are required to use separate camping tents, or rooms when hotels are arranged
  • Please handle your own gear (and your own fish!) only. No sharing for doctored fish pictures.
  • In the event that there are common surfaces (i.e., car surfaces, door handles, etc.) please wipe them down with sanitizer or hand wipes
  • All attendees should wash and sanitize their hands frequently
