Lance Gray and myself came up with the concept of an event that would raise awareness and conservation measures of the Lower Yuba River, a 100% wild fishery of Chinook salmon, steelhead, and resident trout. As guides who profit of the river we wanted to give back by getting fellow guides, anglers, conservation groups and businesses in the fly fishing industry together.
The event was a huge success with a little over 80 members from the public showing much interest in talking and learning from all the exhibitors. It was a really good time despite near triple digit temperatures.
