Big Water Fall Primer Symposium 8/25/14


Big Water Fall Season Primer – presented by Lance Gray & Jon Baiocchi

Fall is just around the corner and all of Northern California’s major river systems will come alive with the arrival of the Salmon, along with the Steelhead which means high protein diet for local rainbows. The Yuba, American, Feather, Sacramento, Klamath and the Trinity Rivers will once again see many anglers that aren't prepared for the “Big Water”.


The “Big Water Fall Season Primer” is simply a Fall fly fishing symposium that is based on what anglers will be facing in the next upcoming months. Lance and I have had many people ask us about what gear we use during the Fall season. Others, ask how we approach the rivers we fish. With all these questions, Lance and I felt that having this on the water clinic would help many of our day to day guest get primed and ready to go for the Fall.



The blueprint for the symposium is basic – we want you to bring your single or double hand rods, lines and all your cold weather gear and let us help you tune it up. We will have our own personal gear for you to see; rods, reels, lines, waders, boots, jackets, rigs and flies. To assist you, we will have all the Rio’s Short Skagit lines, Versileaders, MOWs for fine tuning double hand rods, single handed lines like the Rio Indicator Line and everything in between for you to try out. We want you to walk away with the knowledge and the equipment list that you need to make the upcoming season the best.



During the clinic Lance and I will cover the following subjects – Tactics for “Big Water” success.

Wading Big Water – wading safety.
Entomology - matching the bugs to the flies that will be on the menu for Fall
Egg Protein – rigging single beads and matching the egg drop throughout the season.
Indicator Rigging – rigging the indicator system to fish in different depths of water.
Swinging - using double handed rods and matching the right line to the right rod.
Selective Trout – stalking selective trout and steelhead. 


This one day clinic will be held August 25, 2014 from 7am – 2pm at Hammon Grove located on the banks of the Yuba River. The symposium will be limited to 10 guests. Rigging and entomology handouts, a river side lunch and drinks are all included. We will also have maps for guest that wish to fish after the clinic on their own. Cost per person is just $85.00. Please contact Lance (lancegrayandcompany.com) or myself (baiocchistroutfitters.com) if you're interested in attending. Thanks - J.
