Fishing at Doc's Pond Sunday Afternoon, June 11th, East of Weeping Water

Schlichtemeier Reservoir, 9.6 Miles East of Weeping Water on Weeping Water Rd. North side

We're planning on an afternoon of fun, fishing at Dr Schlichtemeier's family pond which holds large bluegill, largemouth bass, crappie and gigantic grass carp.  The fishing is usually very good.  We'll have water and soft drinks to accompany whatever you bring for a potluck picnic.  We plan to have a charcoal grill available to grill whatever people wish to bring.  Fly fishing is not mandatory but we will have a few spare rods to share if you don't have one and wish to try.  All welcome, kids included!

If you email me at mvr1@earthlink.net, I'll send you a link to a Google Map of the exact site.

Board Meeting Tuesday May 23rd at the Wehrspahn Lake NRD Building

We will have a regular chapter board meeting at 7 PM on Tuesday May 23rd at 7 PM at the Papio-Missouri NRD Building at Wehrspann Lake/Chalco Hills Recreation Area. Members are welcome to attend. We'll focus a good bit of our discussion on planning engaging events apart from meetings for the coming year, so as to give members more notice. Many of these will involve fishing in the area, and perhaps also participation in a Fly Fishing Film Festival with Cornhusker Fly Fishers.

We'll also go over plans for the June 7 Casting For Recovery event at Ponca State Park. Casting for Recovery sponsors retreats to improve quality of life for women with breast cancer through the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. At this particular retreat, several of our members will serve as guides for participants on the morning of the 7th starting at 8 AM, fishing the ponds there until lunch time.

After the business is over we generally go to the Choo Choo Bar & Grill, 14240 U (off Millard Avenue) for socializing.

Please do come and participate or drop by for drinks thereafter!

Fishing at Holmes Lake April 29th and board meeting on April 25th

Fishing in Lincoln April 29th

We'll be fishing at Holmes Lake in Lincoln starting at around 1PM on Saturday April 29th.  We should have a couple of spare fly rods to share if you don't have one of your own and want to learn. Or bring a spinning rod if you prefer. You'll need a fishing license which you can get at https://ngpc-permits.ne.gov/NGPC-PS/faces/public/welcome . There should be some trout left in the lake as well as bluegill and bass. We'll have refreshments and snacks available for breaks. All ages welcome!

We'll be on the North side of the lake, with a couple of tents to protect the snacks and a banner. Dress warmly for cool spring weather!

 

Chapter Board Meeting April 25th

Earlier in the week, on April 25th at 7PM, we will have a chapter board meeting at our regular meeting location at the NRD building in Chalco Hills in Omaha. Members and interested parties are always welcome to attend, but board meetings are less fun than fishing. So if you have to choose, come fishing with us on Saturday instead.

After the business is over we generally go to the Choo Choo Bar & Grill, 14240 U (off Millard Avenue) for socializing. (After 9pm)

Please do come and participate or drop by for drinks thereafter!

March Monthly Meeting Fishing outing 5PM March 28, Two Rivers SRA

Tuesday March 28th, Starting around 5PM at Two Rivers SRA near Waterloo.

We will be fishing at the Trout Lake. The lake has just been stocked with several thousand trout. They're not wild fish, but it is a short drive for most of us to get there. You will need a fishing license and a special $6 trout tag available at the park office. Each trout tag allows the harvest of four trout. There is no requirement that you use a fly, but we should have an extra fly rod or two if you want to learn. We'll fish until it get dark at around 8PM. (Photo from Google images.)

Please do come and participate!
