Fishmaster:  Josh Wilkens,

Fish Species:  Going for striper, largemouth, small mouth, bluegill, white crappie, rainbow trout, and striper.

Equipment:  I’m bringing a 6 wt floating line for everything but stripers and 8 wt full sink for stripers down as far as 25 feet.  Fishing out of float tube.

Flies:   Clousers and buggers should be able to find one if not all species maybe.   Have some extra smelt patterns if  anybody just wants to try it.

 Day Fishing Fees:  Parking $6.

Watercraft launch fee: $5 for trailered boats; $3 for car-top, inflatable boats and float tubes. $2 for windsurf boards. Boat inspection: $4/cartop; $7/trailered.

Float tube Inspection:  Don’t bring kayak if you do make sure super dry and bring float tube just in case, they fail kayaks like 95% of time for me.    I learned to just float tube there.

Camping Fees:  $43 for tent campsite with reservation fees included, then $8 for additional vehicle, $5 fishing day pass, and #3 inspection. 2 vehicles and 8 people max per site.  There will be 8+ SCFF members planning to camp on Saturday night.    Mainly around campsite #16.  There is tap water and toilets.  Lot of additional information about the fishout on Google Groups.
