   Chironomid Capers Saturday, March 17th :
Coordinator: Robin La Rue

"Chironomid Capers" is a Club outing at Pass Lake when Chironomids are the main diet of the Rainbow and Brown trout there. This is also the first day of the Fish Census.

  Members gather at the launch ramp early in the morning for club provided coffee and Cookies, and then head-out onto the lake with their favorite Chironomid flies. More information will be available at the march General Meeting.


April Fools March 31st
Coordinator: Tim Cooley and the Board

"April Fools" is a Club outing at Pass Lake.  Chironomids are still the food item on the trout diet.  and this is the last day of the Fish Census.
   Members are reminded that a parking permit is necessary!  We meet at the launch ramp and once again try our hand at catching and releasing fish.
     Some claim that there is a skill to it, while others claim luck.  A good time is had by all sharing fishing stories when everyone returns to the launch ramp for a Club sponsored lunch.
Coordinator:  The Fidalgo Fly Fishers Board.
