Ray Mutter, Fishmaster
This is a great outing to catch wild trout at one of California's best wild fisheries and to socialize with other members and guests. I suggest you make hotel reservations in Burney, CA.
There are two motels that I recommend and they are all under one ownership and phone number (530) 335-3300.
The Charm Motel: fee $166.00 plus tax per night. Sleeps seven.
Green Gables Motel: (I have booked unit 47 (sleeps 5 to 8) This is a first come first serve basis. The fee including tax is $152.90 per night & will be split by the nights you stay. Once you sign up and wish to cancel you will be responsible for the cost of the three nights or get a replacement.
The Main office for the two motels is located at 37371 Main Street, Burney Falls, CA 96013.
If you prefer to camp, there is McArthur Park at Lake Britton and near Burney Creek, Cassell PG&E Camp Ground. These are centrally located to most of the good fishing areas. There is also Hat Creek Hereford Ranch Campground (530) 335-7171 (great campground – showers, camp on grass – but not located as close to fishing).
I will be heading up on Monday, May 6, and returning on Thursday, May 9, 2013. I invite any who can make it to come that day or any day/part of the week. Members are encouraged to bring non-members on this expedition. If anyone needs a ride or would just like to pair up or can drive, contact me so I can try to pair you up.
We will meet Tuesday morning at 6:45 at the Green Gables Motel unit 47 and then head out to Hat Creek Power House #2. We will also be making trips to Burney Creek and Cassell or you may go to any other waters that you wish to fish (Pit River #3 & 4, Upper Hat Creek, Carbon Bridge).
Wednesday, the group will dine at Art's Out Post Restaurant, just down the street from the Burney Motel and across the street from the Green Gables Motel, to share information and fishing stories.
Gear: 5-6 Wt. Rods, floating line with a tapered leader, nymphs-flash back pt, Hares ear, Caddis, Copper John size 18-20. Dry: Caddis, Little yellow Stone, and the Salmon Fly may be out then.
