September 18 Speaker Frank Day

Frank Day works at The Fly Fishing Shop in Welches as a Guide and Fly Manager. He began fly fishing at a very early age.

Frank now lives in Government Camp, Oregon, fishing a variety of watersheds. He is most commonly found on the local waters of Mt. Hood. He specializes in trout fishing on the local streams and high mountain lakes, but is equally at home swinging a sculpin on a light spey set-up on the Deschutes.

Nick Wheeler from Royal Treatment will be CFF’s guest speaker Tuesday, June 19th.

American Shad are called the little tarpon of the Columbia River. This silver-sided finned friend is one of the most underrated game fish of the Pacific Northwest. With returns in the millions and eager to eat a swung fly what’s not to like?

Nick’s presentation will include a brief history of this patriotic fish, explain how it got to the west coast, and go through recommended tackle, techniques, and potential spots to catch these fish. American Shad are known for putting up a fierce fight and do not give up easily. Be careful, like popcorn, these fish can be addictive and will keep you coming back for more.

Nick Wheeler has been fly fishing for Shad for over 15 years and working in the fishing industry just as long. Growing up in Northern California on the banks of the Russian River chasing Steelhead and Shad had been his favorite pastime. Living just feet away from the best Shad run on the Russian he was lucky enough to spend most days of the season on the water. Now living in Vancouver Washington and working at Royal Treatment in West Linn Oregon, he spends his time targeting as many species as possible (trout, salmon, steelhead and even carp), but every year he still devotes the entire month of June to chasing American Shad.

Michole Jensen of www.Kayakflyangler.com will be CFF’s guest speaker Tuesday, December 19th.

Kayak fishing is one of the fastest growing sports and fly fishing from a kayak continues to follow along with that popularity. Kayaks represent a new element of fly fishing that has as many opportunities as there is water to fish.
