 2017 Stillwater Clinic  Davis Lake

Dates: June 9-11

           June 16-19


Davis Lake is well known for its prolific Damsel hatch. Anglers come from all over the West to fish Davis during the Damsel hatch each year. We have also gotten to experience a great Hexagenia Mayfly hatch as well. We will be spending the weekend sharing some of our secrets on how to fish Davis Lake and also teaching angler’s techniques to use on stillwaters anywhere. We will cover everything from early morning Sight fishing the shoreline to deep water Nymphing in the middle of the day. Davis Lake is the perfect venue to sharpen your Stillwater skills and practice some of our advanced techniques.

John Baiocchi and Rob Anderson have been fishing and teaching anglers advanced Stillwater techniques for over 15 years. John is well known in the Sierras for his expertise on advanced Stillwater techniques. Both Rob and John do seminars at shows and fly club meetings and Rob is a commercial fly and product designer also managed the Reno Fly Shop for years and specializes in hosting outings and teaching large groups. Rob is also a gourmet cook.

The clinic will be a 2 day fishing event and will cover advanced Stillwater techniques, proper rigging, shore line wading as well as float tube, pontoon boat and small pram techniques. There will be lots and lots of free time to practice and catch some of these big beautiful Rainbows at Davis Lake. Space is limited to 12 anglers.

Pyramid Lake Float Tube Weekend

Pyramid Lake has long been known for its huge Lahontan Cutthroat Trout and its peculiarity of anglers standing in a lake fishing from ladders. Although “Ladder Fishing” is still the most popular way to fish Pyramid Lake, the introduction of the Pilot Peak strain of Cutthroat Trout in 2006 has helped put float tubing back on the map at the lake. The Pilot Peaks tend to chase bait near shore in both early fall and late spring. Due to this, they have broadened our effective fishing season when the old Summit Lake strain are hanging out in much deeper water.

Over the last two years we have had some great fishing at the lake from pontoon boats and float tubes in October/November and again in May and early June. So this May we are going to give anglers an opportunity to learn how we fish for giant Lahontans in warmer water later in the season. We will cover a wide variety of topics including gear, safety, techniques, location and how to use the lake and the varying weather conditions to your advantage.


Come join us for a really fun weekend on the lake and get a chance to catch a fish of a lifetime.
