All of us here at “The Spot” were truly saddened today with the news of the passing of Stan Beringhele. An amazing fly tier but beyond that a terrific person. He will be missed.
Is the 201 class on the Owens happening this weekend?
For those of you wondering about where the California DFW Inland Trout Angling Regulation Simplification proposals are heading, I have an update as of the beginning of June. On the morning of June 6, I received a text message from Mammoth fly fishing guide Harry Blackburn informing me that he had a chat with CDFW Environmental Program Manager Roger Bloom. Harry informed me that DFW is listening to the numerous voices of concern that they received regarding the proposal changes. They received over 5,000 solicited comments during the open period of online submission. Roger also received a lot of phone calls during March and April from concerned sportsmen and sportswomen. Harry informed me that Roger believes change – whatever form that may be, unbeknownst to anyone yet – would happen at 2021 at the earliest. I called Roger Bloom myself to clarify. I had a lengthy, good conversation with him. He told me that they are compartmentalizing the various 5,000 submitted comments into identifiable groups of representation. They sorted through the data, and identified sources of comments, then grouped those sources together. It was obvious to DFW which comments came from outfitters, guides, spin anglers, fly anglers, etc. “We had a special folder for inflammatory remarks,” Roger jokingly told me. No doubt DFW stuck their neck out when they rolled out the possibility of revolutionary changes to trout fisheries across the State of California. I joked with Roger that it was like he put on a deer costume, and ran around the woods during deer season opener. He replied that the vast majority of submitted concerns were rationale and on target. Roger informed me that DFW is analyzing the grouped data to find consistency across all groups. That will likely drive any change to inland trout fisheries that occurs. They will not collect any fish census data until they have an idea of what changes may take place. He told me, “There is no purpose in spending the resources taking a fish count of Hot Creek, for example, if we keep Hot Creek fly only.” Valid point. As a guide myself, I asked what becomes of the data collected from guides on the Guide License Daily Trip Logs. He would like to see those logs become computer driven so they can at least look at that data across the state - but this is beyond his decision making. It comes more from enforcement. As they sift through all the data, Roger believes change won’t come down the pipeline until March 2021. What I gathered from conversation with Roger is that DFW is listening to the thousands of concerns, and has decided to take a breather before continuing further. I’d expect some change. No one knows what that will look like yet though. At the time of my conversation with Roger, he informed me that Mono County District Supervisor John Peters is hosting a Town Hall Meeting at the Bridgeport Memorial Hall in Bridgeport on Wednesday, June 19, at 6PM. Roger will be there with DFW staff to field questions per the direction reg changes are going. DFW is sending a new fisheries biologist to the Eastern Sierra - Russell Black. Mr. Black will work with current DFW Field Biologist Jim Erdman. DFW feels that they need a bigger presence of representation in the Eastern Sierra. I agree. Former City of Bishop Councilmember and current Chairperson of the Inyo County Fish and Wildlife Commission Joe Pecsi informed me that three California State Assembly members sent a letter to DFW expressing strong opposition to the proposed changes. The City of Bishop and Inyo County Board of Supervisors also expressed opposition. Groups from outside the Eastern Sierra region, such as the Pasadena Casting Club, also took an official stance against the proposed changes. DFW is all ears open. This is great news. I will keep you abreast of new information when I learn of it. No decisions have been made yet. Keep voicing your concerns if you have them.

A series: Plankton is a small creature in the microscope, and these small creatures are the
food source of fish. The A series is developed from the perspective of bionics. It has 3D
invisibility and camouflages itself in nature. This line greatly reduces the fish's It is
also alert and has the characteristics of resistance to seawater corrosion.
🎥 We are excited for the International Fly Fishing Film Festival coming to Pasadena tomorrow and Ventura on Thursday.

Hasta pronto!
Excellent customer service & very
knowledgeable. Outfitted us to go
on fly fishing trip & we were extremely
pleased. Family trip to Eastern Sierra at
spot at 9000 feet. Help from Fishermen's Spot
made our trip a success. BTW this was in celebration
of 80th birthday. Never too old to fish! Yeah for
Fishermen's Spot & TU!
Ok so I have tried fishing the LA river several times and the only carp I caught were two on the first day a couple years ago. I am tired of standing in the river like an as***le getting skunked. Who has some tips or is planning on going there in the near future.
New Zealand has the biggest trout on the planet, some over 40 lbs, all wild rainbows, browns and King salmon, all centered around the small town of Twizel, south island!
Open year round, 24 hours, use fly, spin or even bait! See monsters like this jumping out right in front of you!
Miles of canals, lakes and streams in this area loaded with fish of dreams! No guide needed, no expensive lodges, just fly to Christchurch, grab a cheap rental and drive 3 hours to Twizel, get a license and a map at a fly shop and go fishin!
