November 19th General Meeting

Our next General Meeting will be Wednesday, November 19th at 7:00 pm at the Edmonds Senior Center south of the Edmonds Ferry Dock in Edmonds, WA.

Our speaker will be Mike Jablinski of All Season Charters who will captain the Annie A for our blackmouth fishing trip in December. (See more information below.) Mike will explain where we will be fishing, what type of gear you will need if you bring your own gear and general fishing tips for fishing blackmouth. Even if you are not going on the trip but plan on doing some fishing on your own this winter, you will find his talk informative.

In addition, this will serve as our annual meeting for election of board members. If you are interested in serving on the board, please contact Gary McConaghy at (206) 354-0877 to get your name on the ballot. The requirement is you must be a member for at least a year and willing to commit to monthly board meetings. We encourage you to step forward to serve on the board.

Blackmouth Fishing Trip

We have arranged for a full charter fishing trip on Sunday, December 14th at 6:30 am on the Annie A from All Season Charters in Edmonds. The charge for the day of fishing will be $50/member - this is a discounted fee thanks to an offset from the Board of Directors. This includes gear, if you need it, bait and coffee. We are limited to the first 23 that sign-up and pay their money at the General Meeting on November 19th at 7:00 pm. There will also be a $5 entry fee each for the two contests: First Fish and Biggest Fish. You are welcome to bring a lunch as well as beer or wine to enjoy on the water.

You will need a fishing license and we encourage you to pick one up ahead of time at either the All Season Charters’ office by Arnies restaurant or any other license retailer. We will meet at the charter office at 6:30 am. The boat will leave promptly at 7:00 am and return around noon.

General Meeting, June 25th at 7pm

Come join us at the Edmonds Senior Center as we welcome back Leland Miyawaki on Wednesday, June 25th at 7 pm.When he isn’t working part-time at Orvis in Bellevue, you can find Leland fishing and guiding on the local Puget Sound and British Columbia beaches. As Leland says, “fishermen usually focus only on salmon and steelhead when they think about fishing in the saltwater of Western Washington, but you can fish for native trout all-year round with a fly rod. It’s a great opportunity and a uniquely Northwest experience.”
He’ll discuss his surface fly the “Miyawaki Beach Popper” that he uses to catch those wild coastal cutthroat trout and he’ll even tie flies. Hope to see as many as possible show up for this special presentation. We will have a fly rod raffle to participate in as well.

Willlow Creek Hatchery Open House and June 25th General Meeting

We will again be hosting our Annual Open House in conjunction with the Edmond's Waterfront Festival May 31 and June 1 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We will have our kids fishing pond ready for your young anglers to try their luck, hatchery tours and feeding the young salmon in the rearing pond. We will also have a raffle for kids fishing gear and maybe even a nice fly rod for the more experienced. Please plan to attend with your kids and grandkids and if you are so inclined we also could use some volunteers to work each day with helping the kids fish, cleaning, setup and take down. If interested in volunteering let Gary McConaghy know at 206-354-0877.
For our June 25th General Meeting we are very excited to have back Leland Miyawaki from Orvis in Bellevue to talk about beach fly fishing in the Puget Sound. Leland always gives a great presentation and has a lot of wonderful information about being able to fish in the sound even if you don't have a boat. More about his presentation latter but wanted you to be aware and mark your calendars to attend.
