Listen to - A Line from your President


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

This month we will cross one more hurdle in our quest to return to normalcy. For the first time in nearly two years, we will be holding our monthly meeting at the Park Avenue Community Center (previously known as the Joslyn Senior Center). We will be meeting at our regular time of 9:30 AM on November 12. To help keep us safe, we must follow the Center’s Covid Protocol. EVERYONE WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK WHEN ENTERING THE CENTER AND DURING THE MEETING. I am looking forward to seeing you all again. This is an especially important meeting, because this is the meeting we will be voting to approve the 2022 Board of Directors. We will also be doing event sign-ups. So please make every effort to attend.

In past years, November brought the beginning of trout season to many of our local lakes. This year it appears that trout season will be arriving a little late to most lakes. Dixon Lake will be stocking 3,000 lbs. of trout on November 16. Poway doesn’t expect to stock until the end of November or the beginning of December, and Lake Wohlford will not be stocking until early December.

The Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve is stocking 3,000 lbs. of trout for this year’s trout season opener, just before our November campout. This will be the club’s first outing since the onset of the Covid pandemic. Our last trip to Santee was in 2019. We caught some nice rainbow and lightning trout on that outing, and we are hoping this year’s fishing will be even better. This is our closest camping venue and has some of the most accessible fishing of any location we go.

December 3 to 5 will be the Annual Dixon Lake Trout Derby. This fun and rewarding three day event will include the Kiddy Ponds on Saturday and Sunday. We still need to fill several slots during the event, and since the derby will be the first weekend in December, we need to fill these slots at the November meeting. Please see Ron Parker, Tony or Monique Smock to help with this event. Those who help out will receive a free boat rental and two permits.

For a great time, the annual Awards Banquet is December 8 at the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo. The beautiful Christmas decorations and tasty meal will put you in the holiday mood. See page 3 for the exciting details. For questions and to sign up for the banquet please contact Betty Allen or Karen Taylor. Monique and I hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving, and I want to remind you that we will not meet in December. The next meeting after our November meeting will be January 14 at the Park Avenue Community Center at 9:30 AM.
