President’s Beat

Messages from the President of Rocky Mountain Flycasters.

November 12, 2012

Dear Members,

Even though Mother Nature is reminding us what is just around the corner, there sure has been some fantastic fishing the last few weeks. By the way, let me take a moment to tip my fishing hat and bow as I offer a special thanks to Cody at St.Pete’s. Dude, that was a slamma jamma Friday on the Mile and even though it wasn't a catch by our boat, if I never live to see another rise, I will always have the memory of you helping that guy net that 38" Brown (yes, there are pictures). Seriously, that was one sick fish!!!! Magic brown from the Miracle Mile, North Platte. photo by Dick Jefferies

Anyway readers...take heed because when we have a program and the guides are telling you where to fish, it is probably worth your time to listen up and head to those waters.
 
I want to extend a special thanks as well to both the City of Greeley and the City of Fort Collins. For the past twenty years or so, they have taken part in a Joint Operating Plan with CTU that has worked toward maintaining a minimum winter flow in the upper Poudre River. Without their effort, especially during the drouht of 2002, we surely would have seen days of zero flow in the river. Thank you so much for your dilligence over the years.
 
And thank you now for your advance notice that the extensive sedimentation we have realized in the lower river from both the High Park and Hewlett Gulch fires, could cause you to temporarily shut off flows in order to not lose the resource for consumption. We understand the consequence of having to shut off those minumum flows and while we cringe at that thought, we know it will be a decision of last resort on your part. It only shows again and again how the long-term consequence of the fires continues to play itself out.
 
It also serves as a reminder of why it is so absolutely critical that we move forward as quickly and effeciently as possible with restorative efforts in the burn areas. Thanks again for the heads-up! It's great to see how we can all work together in a positive fashion toward a common good.

Guest Night is this coming Wednesday. You will not want to miss this program as we are so pleased to present Kirk Deeter, Rick Takahashi and Elkhorn Rods and Reels all in the same evening.

See you Wednesday.
Dick Jefferies, President Rocky Mountain Flycasters
