    Event Description: 

    This is the annual TVFF Club 3 night-3 day camping trip headquartered at Logger Campground, Stampede Reservoir with three days of fishing the Big Truckee, Little Truckee, and Milton Lake for rainbow and brown trout. It coincides with the peak of the multiple aquatic hatches in the area (see the hatch chart; Truckee hatch chart ), and will include river wading opportunities and a day of either float tube/pontoon/pram or bank fishing at Milton Lake. Fishing techniques to be used include traditional indicator nymphing, Euro nymphing, streamers, and dry fly techniques.

    Registration is expected to be large so the camping group will be split up to fish the various locations during each day as to not crowd each other. We will be fishing the Big Truckee at Glenshire, Boca, Hirschdale and downstream in the Farad area with access via a 2 mile riverside trail. We will also be splitting into smaller groups to fish the Little Truckee on the main river in three separate locations, as well as the Boca inlet and Cave Rock. I will be asking a few folks to be assistant Fishmeisters on the trip for each group, and we will be providing maps as well.  The third group each day will be at Milton Lake off highway 89 near Jackson Meadows. And then we'll play musical chairs and shift the groups to new locations each day with full reports that evening over beer and scotch around the campfire.

    On this first evening, July 25th we may plan to have a local guide join us over dinner to discuss where, how to fish, and current flies that are working in the areas at that particular time. It should be a great kickoff for 3-4 full days of fishing in the area since we won't be going in "blind" to the conditions.  If so, there may be a slight incremental charge to cover the cost of the guide stopping by (maybe $10-20).

    Hatches during this period are profuse and varied.  You may want to stop in Mountain Hardware in Truckee (an excellent selection of local guide tied flies) to check on their excellent reports and  superb fly selection, as well as anything else you may need for the week.  IN addition there is a new fly shop in Truckee, but I have not been able to verify their offerings or helpfulness.

    Cost: 

    Cash price: You may pay by check or cash directly to the Club Treasurer within two weeks of registration and not pay the credit card surcharge of 3.0% if you desire. If you do pay cash you will be put into "Pending Registration" until your payment is received within the two weeks. Late payments will require you to register once again if there is space still available. The cost for this trip is $40 for TVFF members and $85 for non-members and guests that includes an annual membership to TVFF.  

    Credit Card price: Price of $41.20 includes the payment by credit card with the 3.0% surcharge. Guest cost is $86.20 for non-members and guests that includes an annual membership to TVFF.

    Fishmeister:  Rob Farris, RFFarris@comcast.net. (925)286-5502.

    Accommodations and Food:  

    Campsite Reservations: You should make your reservations now. We have reserved a campsite for TVFF  in Logger Campground (site #57) as our general staging and dinner area. The Club's  campsite can accommodate 4 tents and 2 non RV vehicles (extra vehicles cost +$5/day), so we are offering those reserved sites to the first 4 TVFF anglers that have signed up that are not bringing up their RV/motor homes.

    For those not on the list above or bringing an RV/Motorhome, you may want to secure a campsite at Logger Campground. Our site is located in the loop close to the kiosk check-in station and restrooms. Campsites are $23/night for singles and $49/night for doubles. 

    This campground on Stampede Reservoir (just above the Little Truckee) is quite popular and fills up quickly, so you should make your reservations as soon as possible to secure a site. The reservation site is listed below, as are the maps availability links.

    Each individual is responsible for their own food, however we are planning for a group potluck the first evening with a local guide joining us for dinner to fill us in on current conditions, gear, flies, etc.  Requested menu offerings will be distributed later.

    Gear and Tackle Recommendations:

    Rod & line weights/types: 4, 5 or 6 weight rods, reels and floating lines

    Leaders and tippet: Fishing style dependent, but normally I fish a 9’ 4X leader and adjust with added tippet of up to 4-6’ of 5 or 6X for the dry flies.  The Truckee is home to large browns so if you plan on throwing some streamer meat you'll want a 5 or 6 weight rod as the current flow can require a stouter rod.  Lake fishing will be dependent upon your style as well, but a 5 or 6 weight rod will normally suffice.

    Other gear: Standard waders, boots, wading staff (for the Truckee), watercraft are allowed on Milton only with no motors, and normal fishing wear.

    Flies: Flies to match hatches above and we will send out a more current list as we get closer to the dates and better understand how the weather and water are impacting the hatches.

    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.

    If an event/trip is fully registered and closed to registration, you may still sign up on the Wait List to be notified if there are any cancellations.  In such a case of registering provisionally on the Wait List, you do not have to pay until such time that you clear the Wait List and are confirmed for participation.

     Event Description: All participants are required to have had the COVID vaccine at least 2 weeks before trip.

    Fishing Montana and Yellowstone National   Park for Cutthroat, Rainbows, and Browns.   We will be fishing the Madison, the   Beaverhead, the Ruby River and others in the area.  We will choose where to fish to ensure that each day is successful.  We will be walking in, wading (wet it’s warm enough) and have the option of many different sections of the river to fish.

    The trip includes lodging from Saturday night to the following Saturday morning. It also includes all meals, licenses and flies for the trip and pickup and drop off at the airport (West Yellowstone) if needed. This is a non-guided trip but Jim fishes with the group each day to make sure everyone is having a good time and catching fish.  

    This is a wading trip into occasionally fast waters so not for the tentative wader.

    Any questions at all or if others who have gone before have some good insights to share, do not hesitate to email or call.

    Cost:  Cost:  $1,700 per person including all food, drinks, lodging, license, flies & hosted by Jim Roberts. The trip includes all meals with dinners at the house and lunches on the river.  The food is great and plentiful and no one will go hungry.  A 50% deposit is required to hold the trip and total payment is due by July 1, 2021. Make checks out to TVFF and please send to our PO Box 2358, Livermore, CA  94550.  If you have to cancel Jim will do his best to find a replacement and if one cannot be found he will refund 50% of your deposit.  Additional costs: air or surface transportation to Montana.  Fly Delta Airlines into and out of West Yellowstone airport and is approximately 20 minutes from the house.   Transportation to and from the airport in Montana is provided.  Generally, everyone flies together unless you want to spend additional time in the area.  As you make your reservations, please send me your info so that I can coordinate pickup times at the airport.

    Driving:

    Should you decide to drive and I have in past years, here are the driving directions to the house. The address is 20 Manor Way in West Yellowstone. It does not show up on some GPS so here are the driving directions. 80 East to 93 North. Go through Twin Falls and the go east on 84/86 to Pocatello. Go North on 15. Take 20 to West Yellowstone. Go north on 191 towards Bozeman. About 15 miles out of West Yellowstone turn left on 287. Go about 10 miles and you will see Mountain Lookout Bar and Grill on the right. The house is just across the street.  The house is fully equipped so no need to bring towels or bedding.  The house has WIFI and it works very well if you need to stay in touch.

    Fishmeister:  Marty Loomis, mjloomis@comcast.net, (510) 514-4703

    Accommodations and Food:  All lodging and food is provided.

    Montana License Requirements:

    Use this link to get your Montana license on-line. 

    https://app.mt.gov/als/index/index.html

    I would recommend that you do it prior to arriving in Montana otherwise you will go down to the local marina and deal with their slow internet connection.   Jim will reimburse you for the cost.  If you remember your ALS number from past years, on-line goes real fast, if not, just email Montana Fish & Game and they should be able to find it for you.  That’s what I did a couple years ago.  We will need an additional license if we fish in the park but that will be done at one of the local fly shops.

    Gear and Tackle Recommendations: 

    Sunglasses

    Camera (there will be critters)

    Wading staff (some of the wading can be pretty damn tough)

    Waders and boots (no felt), most wet wade on past trips. (not me)

    Hat

    The weather is usually in the 70s but it can rain any day so bring a jacket.

    Water Bottle

    Rod & line weights/types: 

    5 or 6 weight rods with 9-10’ lengths and floating lines are the recommended setup, as are high stick nymphing approaches.  If you wish to fish streamers a sinking line will work well. Fly’s are provided by Jim.  We will mostly be high sticking during the week.  Basic stuff like Princes, Adams. It's not too complicated up there. Jim has a specific way to rig rods so don’t bother with pre-rigging.

    TVFF 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, by July 7, 2021 (sent to the TVFF Treasurer) whatever fee is described for that particular Event (trip) at the time of registration.

     Event Description: All participants are required to have had the COVID vaccine at least 2 weeks before trip.

     Fishing Montana and Yellowstone National   Park for Cutthroat, Rainbows, and Browns.   We will be fishing the Madison, the   Beaverhead, the Ruby River and others in the area.  We will choose where to fish to ensure that each day is successful.  We will be walking in, wading (wet it’s warm enough) and have the option of many different sections of the river to fish.

    The trip includes lodging from Saturday night to the following Saturday morning. It also includes all meals, licenses and flies for the trip and pickup and drop off at the airport (West Yellowstone) if needed. This is a non-guided trip but Jim fishes with the group each day to make sure everyone is having a good time and catching fish.  

    This is a wading trip into occasionally fast waters so not for the tentative wader.

    Any questions at all or if others who have gone before have some good insights to share, do not hesitate to email or call.

    Cost:  Cost:  $1,700 per person including all food, drinks, lodging, license, flies & hosted by Jim Roberts. The trip includes all meals with dinners at the house and lunches on the river.  The food is great and plentiful and no one will go hungry.  A 50% deposit is required to hold the trip and total payment is due by July  7, 2021. Make checks out to TVFF and please send to our PO Box 2358, Livermore, CA  94550.  If you have to cancel Jim will do his best to find a replacement and if one cannot be found he will refund 50% of your deposit.  Additional costs: air or surface transportation to Montana.  Fly Delta Airlines into and out of West Yellowstone airport and is approximately 20 minutes from the house.   Transportation to and from the airport in Montana is provided.  Generally, everyone flies together unless you want to spend additional time in the area.  As you make your reservations, please send me your info so that I can coordinate pickup times at the airport.

    Driving:

    Should you decide to drive and I have in past years, here are the driving directions to the house. The address is 20 Manor Way in West Yellowstone. It does not show up on some GPS so here are the driving directions. 80 East to 93 North. Go through Twin Falls and the go east on 84/86 to Pocatello. Go North on 15. Take 20 to West Yellowstone. Go north on 191 towards Bozeman. About 15 miles out of West Yellowstone turn left on 287. Go about 10 miles and you will see Mountain Lookout Bar and Grill on the right. The house is just across the street.  The house is fully equipped so no need to bring towels or bedding.  The house has WIFI and it works very well if you need to stay in touch.

    Fishmeister:  Marty Loomis, mjloomis@comcast.net, (510) 514-4703

    Accommodations and Food:  All lodging and food is provided.

    Montana License Requirements:

    Use this link to get your Montana license on-line. 

    https://app.mt.gov/als/index/index.html

    I would recommend that you do it prior to arriving in Montana otherwise you will go down to the local marina and deal with their slow internet connection.   Jim will reimburse you for the cost.  If you remember your ALS number from past years, on-line goes real fast, if not, just email Montana Fish & Game and they should be able to find it for you.  That’s what I did a couple years ago.  We will need an additional license if we fish in the park but that will be done at one of the local fly shops.

    Gear and Tackle Recommendations: 

    Sunglasses

    Camera (there will be critters)

    Wading staff (some of the wading can be pretty damn tough)

    Waders and boots (no felt), most wet wade on past trips. (not me)

    Hat

    The weather is usually in the 70s but it can rain any day so bring a jacket.

    Water Bottle

    Rod & line weights/types: 

    5 or 6 weight rods with 9-10’ lengths and floating lines are the recommended setup, as are high stick nymphing approaches.  If you wish to fish streamers a sinking line will work well. Fly’s are provided by Jim.  We will mostly be high sticking during the week.  Basic stuff like Princes, Adams. It's not too complicated up there. Jim has a specific way to rig rods so don’t bother with pre-rigging.

    TVFF Cancellation Policy:

    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.

    If an event/trip is fully registered and closed to registration, you may still sign up on the Wait List to be notified if there are any cancellations.  In such a case of registering provisionally on the Wait List, you do not have to pay until such time that you clear the Wait List and are confirmed for participation.

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
