Crab Feed UpdateWelcome to the Diablo Valley Fly Fishermen club website. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the support and conservation of native fish and their environment. The members of DVFF promote the awareness, art and skills of fly fishing, fly tying, rod building, catch and release practices, and related activities.

The DVFF organization exists to serve its members through club activities and resources including a novice seminar, skills seminars, fishing outings, guest speakers at regular meetings, an online forum, a DVD lending library, Facebook page, and fund raising activities, such as our annual auction.

The club sponsors a scholarship for research in Fisheries Biology and/or Riparian or Limnetic Ecology by a student of the UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Center of Aquatic Biology and Aquaculture. The DVFF also supports a large Trout In the Classroom program and sponsors a local Project Healing Waters program.

Anyone interested in fly fishing is eligible and welcome to become a member of the DVFF.

The Heritage and Wild Trout Program
with Stephanie Hogan


Stephanie Hogan is in love with protecting California’s heritage trout species and, of course, fishing for them. She will share her experiences with the California Department of Fish & Wildlife's Wild and Heritage Trout Program, talk about how the DFW manages wild trout fisheries and will promote unique fishing opportunities found in California.

Stephanie is an Environmental Scientist with the DFW and has been working with the Heritage and Wild Trout Program for nearly 10 years. In that capacity, she enjoys and finds it rewarding to travel throughout California to oversee field surveys and manage these fisheries. A graduate of the College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Stephanie misses the rain of her home state of New York, but is happy to have found her way to California.
