Sunriver Anglers Monthly Meeting
When: January 4, 2023, 4:30 – Doors open at 4:00
Speaker: Phil Fischer
Fly Fishing Central Oregon Stillwaters
In January the Sunriver Anglers welcome one of its own as the featured speaker for its monthly meeting. Phil Fischer, fly tier extraordinaire, will lead the club on a tour of the stillwaters of central Oregon. The stillwaters, more commonly known as lakes or reservoirs, range along the eastern slopes of the Cascades from the California border in the south to the Washington border to the north.
Phil is an avid fly tier, fly fisherman, photographer and author who lives in Sunriver and is very active in the Sunriver Anglers. He was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and has fly fished extensively throughout the Western United States and numerous international destinations. He regularly demonstrates fly tying and fly patterns at several West Coast shows and often speaks at fly clubs in Oregon and Northern California.
Phil will take the club on a journey throughout the lakes in this area and shared his insights on these waters, including the best times to visit, specific locations, major hatch periods and the most successful tactics for fly fishing these waters. He will share his beautiful photography to explore Hosmer, East and Davis Lakes as well as Wickiup and Crane Prairie reservoirs.
The Anglers are returning to the SHARC for their monthly meetings with a new schedule. Our meetings will occur on the first Wednesday of the month and begin at 4:30.
