Yuba Fest 2018
You are invited to Yuba Fest, which will take place Oct. 13, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Sycamore Ranch County Park on the Lower Yuba River. Yuba Fest will showcase fly fishing guides, fly clubs, fly shops, environmental groups, and state agencies that all are working hard to make the Lower Yuba River and her watershed the best that it can be. Yuba Fest is all about giving back to the river that has provided wonderful memories to us all. The Lower Yuba River is wonderful place to recreate, fly fish, drift, and hike. We want to protect it for future generations. The key to the Lower Yuba’s success and future is educating all who love the river. We are hoping that Yuba Fest will become an annual event for years to come.
Admission to Yuba Fest is free to all who would like to participate! We will have workshops to learn about fly fishing and to enhance your fly fishing skills. Our “Fly Fishing for Kids” element will include fly casting, fly tying, and lessons about the bugs that trout eat. Yuba Fest is for those individuals who recreate, fly fish, protect, and enhance the Lower Yuba River. Yuba Fest is co-hosted by Fly Fishing Traditions, the Gold Country Fly Fishers, and The Reel Anglers Fly Shop.
I will be providing an entomology class for both the kids and adults, and also technical rigging for “Tight Line” nymphing, and for dry flies. I will also be offering a Dry Fly Workshop on Sunday the 14th from 10am to 2pm in conjunction with the Yuba Fest. A special price of $40 per angler (all proceeds go to Gold Country Fly Fishers conservation fund) will get you an informative handout, rigging supplies, and complete instruction. Limited to 6 anglers on a first come, first serve basis. Contact me in person at the Yuba Fest on the 13th to sign up.
I hope you can make the Yuba Fest! See you there!
