Members,

Our last meeting for the summer is June 3. I think we have a great program - Fishing the Yellowstone Back Country. A must see if you spend any time up in the Yellowstone area. Just because we don’t meet in the summer doesn’t mean we aren’t busy! Take a look at the calendar and you will see events throughout the summer. A Green River campout, 4th of July parade, and a campout/picnic up at Strawberry Reservoir are just a few of the activities. Plus, there will be other opportunities to fish and to volunteer. Get involved. You will learn more about places to fish, when to fish and what to fish with. If you are looking for a fishing partner, contact someone in the club. We always like to fish.

The fishing is getting better and better as the water warms. A few stone flies were seen in the air on the Lower Provo the other day and the summer bugs are imminent. I hear that PMD nymphs are starting to be effective, even though they haven’t started hatching. If you want to catch more fish, you need to know about the insects they eat. If you would like to learn more about entomology (for us, that means the study of the bugs in the river), we have a class by Steve Caldwell and Dave Tall on June 6. Check the calendar for details.

Tight lines,
Mike
