Listen to - A Line from your President

 

A Line from your President. . . . . . . . . . .

That light at the end at the tunnel I have referred to has now become a dazzling view of good times ahead as we emerge from the tunnel. With the number of vaccinated climbing, and the number of new COVID cases rapidly decreasing, the State will be ending nearly all mask and social distancing requirements as of June 15. For a large portion of the population, this will be the “breath of fresh air” that those of us who are fully vaccinated have already begun to feel.

As pointed out in a recent Kaiser Health News, “With a mix of relief and caution, older adults fully vaccinated against covid-19 are moving out into the world and resuming activities put on hold during the pandemic.” Many are making plans to see adult children and hug grandchildren they haven’t visited for months — or longer. Others are getting together with friends indoors, for the first time in a long time.

People are scheduling medical appointments that had been delayed and putting trips to destinations near and far on calendars. Simple things that felt unsafe pre-vaccination now feel possible: petting a neighbor’s dog, going for a walk in the park, stopping at a local hangout for a cup of coffee.

I am hopeful that the relaxing of restrictions may also mean that we will soon be able to resume monthly meetings at the recreation center, and that we will be able to resume Club sponsored fishing charters, Club picnics and our camping excursions.

For those that can’t wait to get out, the Sierra Fishing Season is going strong with many nice trout coming out from most locations. Nearly all parks and campgrounds are open.

Many in the Club were treated to some great Sierra fishing information from Ernie Cowan during our last zoom meeting. I would like to thank Ken Harrison for setting the meeting up, and Fariba Eghaneyan for hosting it. Though I unfortunately missed it, it was the best attended zoom meeting so far, and I have been told it was an excellent presentation.

For those who want to stay closer to home, the monthly shore fishing group always welcomes new attendees. Local charters are starting to pick up Bluefin Tuna, and half day boats are catching bottom fish and calicos. Local trout fishing is winding down for the season, but Largemouth Bass are very active. Bass can be found in the shallow waters along the shore. Senko worms have been a very hot bait. Monique and I are looking forward to seeing you all soon. Enjoy our return to normal and make this a summer to remember.
