Welcome

Welcome 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 the local Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing-Martinez, CA program.

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

Fly Fishing Baum Lake
with Andrew Harris

Speaker Andrew Harris 2016.02Baum Lake is a wide slow moving section of Hat Creek created by the Hat 2 Powerhouse dam. It is located near Burney and is a favorite destination for many fly anglers due to its large population of trout, year-round fishing, spring creek like qualities, and close proximity to other quality fisheries. Andrew will provide an in-depth examination of the Baum Lake fishery. Using aerial maps, he will show the different features of the lake and how best to fish them. His presentation includes access points, techniques, and effective fly patterns.

 

Andrew began his guiding career at Clearwater House on Hat Creek in 1997, guiding clients on the rivers surrounding Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen. He is the author of "Plumas National Forest Trout Fishing Guide" and is a frequent contributor to California Fly Fisher magazine. Andrew lives in Red Bluff, California. His current guide destinations include the Lower Sac for trout and stripers, the Trinity River for steelhead, and Battle Creek for dry fly fishing.
