Fly Fishing the Carson River Drainage with Steve Schalla

The speaker at the September meeting is Steve Schalla talking about the Carson River drainage. Steve says some consider the Carson River Drainage to be one of the premier fly fishing opportunities in the Sierra.

Steve Schalla grew up north of Santa Barbara fishing the coastal creeks between Goleta and Gaviota and the High Sierra. After completing a degree in forestry at Cal he established tree seedling businesses in California, Oregon, and Washington. In Oregon his seedling nursery was located on the famous Umpqua River and on the Lewis River in Washington.

After retiring from the seedling business Steve started a web site called Fly Fishing the Sierra about 14 years ago. He started by mapping key fishing areas within the Sierra showing their access, what type of fish inhabited the waters, hatch charts, and what flies to use. He’s also created fishing maps for the popular fly fishing destinations including the Kern River and the Owens river from Big Springs to Big Pine that are available at local fly shops. In the works are maps for the Carson and Walker drainages. Steve will bring samples of these maps to the club meeting.

This month's meeting is at:
