Our May DCFF meeting is still canceled, because of the closure by the City of Riverside for all their facilities as well as our Governor’s “Shelter at Home” policy that is still ongoing! Presently, we are planning to have the June 24th meeting using a Zoom meeting platform. We will send out an e-mail blast prior to that meeting for the meeting number and password. Our speaker for that meeting will be Steve Schulla who is the President of South West Council. He will be covering flyfishing education and benefits of being a member of the SWC as well as some fishing pics.
Hopefully, by July 22nd meeting we will be able to meet at our club house or use the Zoom platform for that meeting. Our speaker scheduled for that meeting is Lee Baermann / Fly Fishing the Surf. He has an excellent presentation for us!
Our August meeting at this time is John Sherman who we had to reschedule from this spring because of COVID 19.
I had previously asked our members back in January if any of them would like to have an outing at Lake Perris and many of you signed up for that. When the State Parks are re-opened, we will consider doing just that with those who are still interested. We will cover basic float tubing skills and equipment needed to fly fish local lakes. If you are still interested in doing that please send me your name, e-mail and phone number and I will be in touch with you in the near future. It seems that Lake Perris has just reopened recently, but access is limited. Carl and I checked it out this week to see about the possibilities for those interested!
Reminder: the month of February was the month that our members were suppose to have paid their membership dues for 2020, we presently as of this past week had only 70% of our membership paid up. So, if you forgot to pay your annual dues, please try to send your check to:
