The trip to the Viejas Casino was a great success, with 42 members attending. Rumor has it that a few came home with more than they went with.
The Holiday/Awards Banquet was held at the Rancho Bernardo Country Club. With Ken Harrison being the MC and KT Taylor, Betty Allen and Anitra Gehrke doing the coordinating, it was a nice kickoff to the holiday season with lots of fun and laughter.
On December 15th we had the first Fishing Challenge of the season held at Lake Wohlford. Great weather, good turnout and nice fish, for more check out the Fresh Water section of this letter. Local lakes are currently being stocked with trout every other week. Now is a good time to give them a try. Don’t forget your 2017 fishing license.
The Escondido Trout Derby at Lake Dixon was a huge success. With as many as 8 fish over 12 pounds and on the last day the new lake record was caught weighing 16.41 pounds.
