2016 Highland Lakes Outing

Written by

July 27 & 30

Fishmaster This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 209-418-9945 

Rendezvous Point:  Highland Lakes, Upper Lake, which is the first lake you’ll come to. We’ll meet at the north end at 8AM on both days.

Lodging:  The only lodging in the area would be the campsites at and around the lakes. Be aware that the campsites are on a first come bases and fill up quickly on the weekends.

Dining:  There are no restaurants or other dining facilities in the area. Bring your own food and beverages as needed. I will have a BBQ grill available for your use.

May 20-22 was not a good weekend to fish Lake Davis, but we went anyway.  Five courageous souls from Amador Flyfishers (John Rogers, Bob Parkyn, Dennis Larson, Gary Slade, and Ron Calvert) battled mother nature to catch a few fish.

Overall fishing was slow and tough, but I would still put it down as a good trip. Our basecamp was the nearby Lake Davis Resort, where each night we thawed out and dried out over potluck meals and good stories. The weather was a harsh and memorable anomaly for late May. Daily temperatures bounced around in the 30's-40's on Friday and Saturday, warming up a bit on Sunday. Each day the mornings started off nice enough, but soon the winds picked up to 10-20 mph, bringing in SNOW on Friday and Saturday. Oh yeah, it was a full moon this past weekend too.  We noticed there weren't many other (crazy) people at the lake, but we didn't take that hint either.

The day dawned bright and clear with little wind as Team AFF assembled at Wino Beach for the 2016 AFF Pyramid Lake outing. In other words, horrible fishing conditions for Pyramid Lake, which fishes best with cloudy, even inclement, weather and the wind from the east. Present were members Ken
Brown, Ron Calvert, Don Mittelstaedt, Charlie Moore, Fishmaster Gary Slade, Gary Swager, and guests Jim Andrews and Ted Morrison.
