Windy Day Lake closures
If the lake is closed due to heavy wind, or I decide it’s unsafe to go out after we booked a day to fish due to bad conditions, I have developed a mutually beneficial policy of taking a $100 deposit to cover my trip and time costs for that day. However, the $100 deposit will be credited back on the next trip you take, as an incentive to book another trip on a good day.
Millerton Striper Trips – Custom Only
Due to drought conditions for the last few years-I will only be doing a few special striper trips to Millerton depending on the current conditions at the time requested. Rates for Millerton trips will be on a custom trip rate basis only. If interested please contact Roger for specific information.
Millerton American shad Trips -Custom Only
(Flyfishing and Conventional Tackle)
Since water flows are key to the American shad spawning runs, trips will have to be scheduled as the water flows at Millerton in the spring develop from the snowpack. Shad are a fish that usually spawn at Millerton in the upper river from May to July-so access to the river area depending on the water levels and early flows is critical to any good fishing. Making sure these constantly changing conditions are optimum is the key to catching these schooling silver torpedos. Flyfishermen are welcome.
“Catch and Release” – I promote conserving the fisheries with safe and gentle “catch and release” practices-but we always try to get some good pictures and measurements before a quick return to the water! However, I also encourage anglers to take home the occasional badly damaged fish we catch rather than wasting it! It must be over 18 inches to keep.
The striper limit in California is 2 fish over 18 inches per angler.
**Anglers provide their own fishing licenses. Children under 16 don’t need a fishing license.
