Listen to - A Line from your President

 

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

I hope everyone is doing well and getting out more. Good news continues to build as California recently went from the worst state for Covid numbers in the country to the number one in fewest cases. We are moving closer and closer to pre-covid normal as many club members begin to take back charge of their lives. So many of us being vaccinated greatly opens opportunities like these: some small groups of club members have begun to take non-club sponsored camping trips, we had our second trout challenge of the year, more offshore fishing opportunities are opening through our affiliation with the Oceanside Club, trout season in the Sierras has opened, and the Club’s on-shore fishing program continues to be going strong. Club sponsored camping trips to June Lake and Jalama Beach will also be taking place this Fall.

The State, barring any setbacks, has announced that they plan to let most businesses re-open by June 15. If the City follows suit, we may be able to resume meetings and activities sometime this summer.

To help reach this goal, I encourage anyone who has not been vaccinated yet to do so. The closer we move to herd immunity the sooner this nightmare will be over.

Ken Harrison participated in opening day in the Sierras and will be starting a monthly update on fishing in the Sierras starting in this month’s newsletter. He will be giving us a firsthand account of fishing conditions from his new home in Bishop.

The Rotary Club of Escondido recently contacted Ron Parker about putting together a donation for a fund raiser for their sponsored youth events, like providing the Kiddy Ponds for Dixon Lake’s trout derbies. Ron spoke to Bill Varney and Gerry Graf about putting together a beginner’s basket for someone starting out learning to shore fish. Without hesitation Bill Varney donated a beginner’s kit, including his book, and Jerry Graff donated fishing gear. I would like to commend all three for their efforts to put this together. I would also like to give a shout out to one of our members, Paul Poitras, who earlier in the year donated several nice rod and reel combinations for our youth programs.

Monique and I wish all of you a safe and healthy May, and a Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s and Grandmother’s in our Club.
