Presidents Message
Hello Everyone!
By the time this message is published we will have
provided another pancake breakfast for the City of Riverside’s
Annual Family Fishing Derby at the lake in Fairmont Park.
This year the City registered over 1000 people to fish Saturday
morning, June 13th. We had enough breakfast sausage to serve
650 of them, and kept serving pancakes long after that. For
the second year in a row the local “Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf”
donated hot coffee. And “Bass Pro Shops” once again donated
fishing gear to award the kids participating in the derby A
GREAT BIG THANKS TO ALL OF CLUB VOLUNTEERS
that showed up to help with the event! Providing the pancake
breakfast every year is the club’s way of saying THANK YOU
to the City of Riverside for the support they’ve given our club
year after year!
For those that may not be aware, Club Treasurer Mike
Wright is resigning this month, and has probably attended his last meeting with the club. Mike is looking forward to
moving to Texas, to be closer to family. I’m sure I speak for all our members that know Mike Wright, when I wish
him the best of luck wherever his life’s adventures take him! Deep Creek Fly Fishers will miss you!
Over the last couple of months Mike has been training George Plescher to assume the duties of Club Treasurer,
and I’m confident that George will do a great job as well. At July’s meeting be sure to say Hi to George and thank
him for taking on this most important position on our board of director’s.
Summer is in full swing and I hope you all have plans to fish some of your favorite places. When making your
fishing plans everyone needs to be mindful of the drought California and other western states are experiencing. Our
June speaker Joe Contaldi of Performance Anglers in Mammoth Lakes reminded all of us of the low water conditions
already present in the East Walker River and other waters in the eastern Sierras, and how damaging it can be to fish
these waters under such conditions. Please check with fly shops, guides, or the CA Dept. of Fish & Wildlife (CA
DF&W) on conditions of the waters that you are planning to fish the remainder of this year.
Here are a couple of recent drought related “News Alerts” from the CA DF&W:
Drought Prompts Fish Evacuation at American River and Nimbus Hatcheries:
With a fourth year of extreme drought conditions reducing the cold water supply available, the California
Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is moving fish out of the American River and Nimbus hatcheries for the
second year in a row. Read more at:
https://cdfgnews.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/drought-prompts-fish-evacuation-at-american-river-and-nimbushatcheries/
Emergency Fishery Closure Evaluation Process Adopted; Careful Angling Can Help Prevent Closures:
The California Fish and Game Commission recently adopted emergency regulations that grant the California
Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) authority to temporarily close fisheries experiencing degraded
environmental conditions that may affect fish populations. CDFW’s temporary authority will commence upon
approval of the regulations by the Office of Administrative Law and will remain in effect for 180 days. Read more at:

Pancake Breakfast at the City’s Family Fishing Derby
On Saturday June 13th Deep Creek Fly Fishers
prepared a pancake breakfast for participants of the 13th
annual City of Riverside Family Fishing Derby @ the
lake inside Fairmont Park.
City staff told me that they registered over 1000
people to fish this year. We bought enough breakfast
sausages to feed 650 of those folks, and were still
serving pancakes long after that. The Coffee Bean & Tea
Leaf located in downtown Riverside provided hot coffee
for the second year in a row, and Bass Pro Shops once
again donated fishing gear which was awarded as prizes
to the kids that caught the biggest fish in their age group
ranging from 5-16 years old.
This is a really fun event that we do every year as a
way of thanking the City of Riverside for all the support
they give our club year after year. THANKS to all the
club members that came out early on a Saturday morning
to help out!

My day with Trout in Classroom
On Saturday May 9, I got to spend part of my day observing our Trout in the Classroom program help
4th graders from schools in Moreno Valley release their trout into Lytle Creek. The kids along with their
teachers, parents and other family members arrived around 9am that morning at the Applewhite Day Use
Area where Doug Spieske, Bill Reeves, Jerry Searcy, and Gary Applebee where there to greet them. The
teachers broke the kids up into four separate groups to learn about stream entomology with live bugs for the
kids to see and touch, the different species of trout and where they live, casting a fly rod, and last but not
least they got to release the trout they had raised into the creek.
I could see that all the activities involved were enjoyed not only by the kids, but their teachers, and
family too! Congratulations to all the club members involved in this wonderful program. Keep up the good
work!! (More pictures on Page 14)

Fly of the Month
Carrot Nymph:
RUBE CROSS
Translated by CARL WUEBBEN
Rube Cross remains a legendary fly tier among catskill
anglers. Living from 1896 to 1958, his flies and tying methods
are still discussed and emulated. Although he was better known
for his sparsely tied dry flies, like all master anglers, cross also
tied and fished nymphs. The original name for the fly was the
Carrot Ant Black Nymph, which was more commonly called
the Carrot Nymph. Orange bodied wet flies have always been
favorite patterns and the Carrot Nymph is an easy-to-tie pattern that is a good choice if you want to experiment
with an orange nymph or wet fly. Leave the full hackle collar if you’d like to tie it a dry fly, or trim the hackle
on the top and bottom to create a pattern with the profile of a nymph.
PATTERN
Hook– Mustad 9671 or equivalent, size #14 to #12
Thread – Black 6/0
Tail – Brown hackle fibers
Abdomen– Carrot floss (orange) or dubbing
Thorax – Black chenille (Standard)
Hackle – Dun hen soft hackle, clipped on the top and
bottom
HOW TO TIE
1- Debarb hook – mount in the vise – Start the thread at about half way down the shank and make a thread base
to the bend of the hook, now tie in your tail (one hook shank long) using about four or five brown hackle
fibers and wrap the butt ends down on the shank with close wraps so your abdomen will be very smooth then
bring your thread back to the rear of the hook shank. Clip off your tag ends of the hackle fibers
2- Tie in your floss then with close wraps bring your thread
forward to a little past mid shank . Tie off and clip off
the tag end of the floss. TIP= Twist the floss a bit to keep
it together and you won’t have any gaps when you wrap it
forward
3- Now tie in some black chenille and wrap forward to about
one and a half an eyelets space from the eye of the hook.
Tie off and clip off the tag end of chenille.
4- Select a hen feather with fibers one and a half the gape
size and tie it in front of the chenille, then wrap it forward
8
Fly of the Month (Cont.)
about two or three times and tie off and clip your tag end off
( leave enough space behind the hook eye to make a small
head).
5- Make a small head – whip finish and clip your thread. Add a
little head cement to the thread head – then trim the hackle
on the top and bottom leaving the fibers hanging to the side.
Try it in different color bodies also
TIE UP A DOZEN OR TWO – AND GO FISHING

Early Season Golden Trout Trip
years old, and once he gets on the water, I often do
not see him again until after last light. He is a fishing
machine.
This past Memorial Day holiday, I found myself
with a very rare weekend off from my job at the
White River Fly Shop at Bass Pro Shops in Rancho
Cucamonga. I almost always work either a Saturday,
Sunday, or both. I’m not complaining, mind you; those
are the busiest days and that’s the way I like it. Getting
paid to hang out in a fly shop helping fly fishers is the
next best thing to being on the water.
I got off from work on Friday, May 22, at 1:30
PM. This gave me time to get home, load our gear, and
head out the door as soon as Joan and Paul came home
from their jobs.
We stopped at a motel in Ridgecrest overnight,
and headed out for the Golden Trout Wilderness on
Saturday morning. (In my younger days, I would have
driven all the way to the trailhead Friday and set up
camp at midnight so I could be on the water as early
as possible the next day. But, as I have gotten older,
I have learned the fish will still be there even if I get
there a little later.)
We accessed the Golden Trout Wilderness
by taking the road to Kennedy Meadows (called
Ninemile Canyon road), off Highway 395 just north
of Pearsonville. We stopped at the Kennedy Meadows
General Store, which was recently featured in the
movie “Wild,” to fill up water bottles and take a
bathroom break. I especially enjoyed the rustic men’s
room, consisting of only a urinal, wide open to public
view, covered only by a pair of saloon style swinging
doors.
But at any rate, here it was a long weekend coming
up and by a fluke of the schedule I had most of it off.
So I decided this would be a good time to make my
annual trek for my favorite fish, the California state
fish, the Golden Trout. Normally, one does not even
think about fishing for goldens until July, when the high
country starts to thaw out from snow and ice. However,
with this being a dry year, along with the fact that many
of the Golden Trout Wilderness waters are at relatively
lower elevations (6,000-8,000’ as opposed to 10,00012,000’ in other locations) I decided to give it a go in
late May.
My wife, Joan and son, Paul, age 20, came along.
Joan does not fish, but she does enjoy the outdoors,
mostly with hiking and photography. And, as a school
principal and former classroom teacher, she has been
involved in the Trout in the Classroom program for
several years. Paul has been flyfishing since he was 6
The Kennedy Meadows General Store, being
located right on the Pacific Crest Trail, is a wellknown stopping point for PCT through-hikers, hiking
from the Mexican border to Canada. We saw a handful
of hikers, but it is still early in the season and most of
the hikers are further south in the San Jacinto and San
Bernardino Mountains at this point. Mid-June is when
the store really starts to bustle.
We continued on, taking Hwy 22S05 from the
store to the Blackrock Ranger Station, then north

Early Season Golden Trout Trip (Cont.)
Golden Trout Wilderness, “large” is relative. Golden
trout in general are fairly small, due to the high
elevation, lack of a long growing season, etc. By
large here, I mean 8-10”.)
I began experimenting with different nymph,
and then dry, patterns, and found most everything
I used to be productive. Flies used included Hares
Ear, Bird’s Nest and Zug Bug nymphs, and a foam
ladybug pattern on top. Most were a size 16 or so.
Most fish caught were goldens; brilliant yellow
flanks with bright orange stripes and bellies. They
are the most beautiful fish in the world in my
opinion and almost appear as if they would glow in
the dark. Some fish caught appeared as if they might
be golden/rainbow hybrids, a little more spotted that
a typical golden and slightly less brilliant. I’m not a
biologist or taxonomist, so I can’t be sure.
on Hwy 21S03 to its dead end at the Blackrock
trailhead, which is the southeast entrance to the
Golden Trout Wilderness. The Blackrock trailhead
features a one-night only free campground for
backcountry hikers. From the trailhead, hikers can
access Casa Vieja Meadows (our destination) with
a downhill hike of about 2 miles. From there, trails
lead in all directions to other locations within the
Golden Trout Wilderness, but Casa Vieja Meadows
was as far as we were going today. (“Casa Vieja”
means “old house,” and there is in fact an old house
in the meadow, marked as a historic landmark.)
I noticed a mayfly hatch occurring in the
afternoon, a PMD in about a size 16. So I decided
to match the hatch with an Adams and then a yellow
Humpy, finding those to be effective also. The best
action would occur when a slight wind would kick
up. When this would happen, I would deliberately
hold my fly just above the water, letting the wind
blow it around back and forth, just like a hovering
We started on the trail at about 11:00 AM and
arrived at the meadow after a little over a half
hour of hiking. Upon arrival, Joan set up her chair
I purchased for her for this trip, an REI Flexlite
backpacker’s chair. I might add that for those
fishermen (and women) with non-fishing spouses,
this chair is an excellent investment. It is compact
and packable, weighing less than 2 lbs. Just set up
anywhere, insert non-fishing spouse with book,
camera, whatever else they need, and then fish away.
Paul and I proceeded to start fishing, Paul
starting with a Bird’s Nest nymph and I with a
Hare’s Ear nymph. I should mention here that the
body of water running through the meadow is the
headwaters of Ninemile Creek, a tributary of the
North Fork Kern River. It is so named because it
enters the Kern about 9 miles from the junction
of the Little Kern and Kern Rivers, accessed
from the Forks of the Kern Trailhead. In Casa
Vieja Meadows, Ninemile Creek is a very small,
meandering meadow stream only 2-3’ across in most
places.
Paul and I eventually determined that the
most productive spots were the deeper pools and
undercuts, which contained the larger fish. (In the

surprising due to the dry winter. The 4WD portion
was about 7 miles and took a little over an hour
to negotiate, but our stock Jeep handled it with no
problems. We followed the signs that said “River
Campsites” and eventually found an excellent sight:
about 100 yards from the river (the upper portion
of the South Fork Kern River), adjacent to a large
pile of small boulders that made a perfect place to
set stove, cookware, etc., pre-existing fire rings, and
which offered a commanding view of the meadow
and surrounding mountains, including 12,123’
Olancha Peak off in the distance. Paul and I hustled
down to the river, saw it was loaded with fish, and
knew we had picked a winner. As a bonus, there were
no other campers within about a quarter mile; there
were a few others here and there but it was definitely
uncrowded.
insect. At times I could actually see the trout in the
water following it around. After teasing the trout like
this for a few seconds, I would let the fly touch down
on the water. Often as many as three trout would rush
the fly, bumping heads as they tried to grab it. All that
was missing was the Three Stooges head-bumping
sound effects.
At about 3:30 PM we noticed clouds were
gathering overhead and it looked like a thunderstorm
could be in the works. By this time I had caught 37
trout, and I asked Paul how he had done. He said he
had caught 40. I said, “Let me catch up to you and we’ll
head back.” I quickly caught 3 more and had my nice
round total of 40 for the day. We then headed back up
the trail to the car. It took closer to an hour to hike back
out, as we were now going uphill. (There is about 740’
elevation gain/loss on the trail; the trailhead is approx.
9000 feet with the meadow being approx. 8300 feet.)
As it was getting later, I didn’t do anymore
fishing that evening, as I had to be responsible and
get our camp set up, dinner cooked, dishes washed,
etc. Like I said earlier, I have learned that the fish
will still be there tomorrow.
After spending a chilly night, with temps in
the 30’s, we got up the next morning and had a
traditional camp breakfast of bacon, eggs, and coffee.
Nothing like camp coffee! Since the early morning
was still very cold, I was not really in a hurry to start
fishing. In early season stream fishing, the trout get a
little more active when the sun gets a little higher and
the bugs start moving.
We had initially considered camping at the
trailhead for the night, but it was only 4:30 by now
with still a lot of daylight left. The thunderstorm never
did materialize. Just down the road from us was the
Monache Meadows Jeep Road. I didn’t know this
about Joan until we bought a Jeep Wrangler 3 years
ago, but Joan LOVES 4WD roads. She doesn’t drive
them, just wants to ride on them with me and sightsee.
So she said she wanted to explore the Monache
Meadows Road.
At about 9:30, the sun was sufficiently high
enough over the mountains for us to start peeling off
layers and start fishing. Though the temperature was
still in the low 50’s, at the high altitude it felt more
like 70. I started with a Western Coachman and Paul
tied on a Purple Haze, which is basically an Adams
Parachute tied purple instead of gray.
I had heard of the excellent fishing at Monache
Meadows, but never had the occasion to go there. I
had read the road doesn’t usually open until June, so I
didn’t know if the road would be open early this year or
not. But we decided to take the road as far as we could
go, and if it was closed, oh well.
As it turned out, the road was open, not really
12
Early Season Golden Trout Trip (Cont.)
Once again, we found very aggressive and hungry
trout. Any well-placed fly in a pocket or current seam
generally produced an immediate take. I eventually
lost my Western Coachman on a snag, and tied on
Renegade. That worked just as well, and when I lost
that, switched to a Sierra Bright Dot, again just as
effective. After about 3 hours fishing, I had a total of
25 fish. 10 of them were brown trout, the rest a golden/
rainbow hybrid which exists in this portion of the
South Fork Kern. They may be hybrids, but they were
every bit as colorful as the pure goldens, and most
appeared more golden than rainbow.
So, rather than going east through Kennedy
Meadows the way we came in, we went west on
Hwy 22S05 (also known as Sherman Pass Road),
which takes you over the pass from the South Fork
Kern watershed to the North Fork Kern watershed.
I found Paul at the campsite, seated on the
aforementioned rock pile with the commanding view,
reading his Bible and school textbooks. Paul said he
had caught 4 fish, then decided to do some homework.
Paul is studying to be a pastor and is preparing for
seminary. The quiet location and breathtaking scenery
had inspired him to just commune with God for a
while. Can’t say I blame him.
Driving along the North Fork Kern (typically
just called the Kern), we saw HORDES of campers
all along the river for the holiday weekend.
Whitewater rafting on the Kern is usually in prime
form at this time, but not this year. While the Kern is
in decent shape for fishing right now, it is too low for
rafting. The normal whitewater raft outfitters have
switched to inner tube rentals, which was in vogue
this weekend. Looks like fun I suppose, but I was
glad for our uncrowded, serene little spot we had
camped at.
So we finished the morning with 110 fish between
us over the last two days. Not bad. It was time to move
out, as Joan wanted to do some more 4WD exploring.
She is out of control when it comes to Jeeping.
After enjoying our meal at the general store,
we headed for home. I would have liked to stay
around for another day, but I had to be back at work
on Monday afternoon. On the way home, Joan
remarked to me that we could do a trip like this on
any given weekend, not just a holiday weekend.
And it’s true. Those of us in the Inland Empire
area are fortunate to be so close to good fishing for
the California state fish, the Golden Trout. If you
haven’t taken advantage of this opportunity yet, I
encourage you to.
After touring the various roads in the Monache
Meadows area for a couple of hours, it was time head
for home. Rather, it was time to head for Kernville
and the Riverkern General Store, where I always stop
for my favorite meal after trip in the Golden Trout
Wilderness: a Suicide Sandwich. It is advertised on the
menu as being “for extreme hunger” and indeed it is.
Those of you who fish the Kern regularly are probably
familiar with this place; it’s located on Sierra Hwy (the
road that parallels the Kern) just a couple miles north
of Kernville downtown area.

SOUTHWEST COUNCIL FLY FISHING FAIRE 2015
October 16 - 18, 2015 / Bishop, CA
The 2015 Southwest Council Fly Fishing Faire will take place October 16-18 at the Tri-County Fairgrounds in
Bishop, CA. The new venue offers a tremendous increase in space for vendor displays, classes, entertainment, and
food.
While the schedule remains fluid, an exciting array of seminars, events, and classes for beginner and experienced
anglers alike will run throughout the weekend. Take in a high-country trout adventure, learn the basics of European
Style Nymphing and Tenkara, or become acquainted with the IFFF’s new fly tying award program, among many other
activities. As always, certified instructors will offer casting classes, and world-renowned tiers will once again hold a
series of fly tying programs.
For those family members in attendance who do not fish, a variety of classes will be offered on quilting, pastel
painting, and gardening for drought-tolerant plants.
