Where: The Parker Senior Center, 10675 Longs Way, Parker, CO., 80138.
When: Doors open at 6:30 pm, Thursday, Oct. 12 and the festivities start at 7:00 p.m.
Our guest speaker will be the one and only Pat Dorsey. He will be talking about tailwaters and discussing the tactics and techniques for success on these streams. Providing a four-season fishery, tailwaters support an abundant and diversified aquatic life. The western United States is known for its deep, bottom-release tailwaters – those rivers that flow from beneath man-made impoundments.
On Saturday, October 21, join us as we venture into the South Park area of Colorado. We will meet at Michelle White's fly shop, The Tumbling Trout, 38283 US-24, Lake George, CO 80827. Plan on being there at 9:00 AM. We will check in with her and get the latest recon for locations in the area. After taking in her words of wisdom and obtaining the necessary supplies for the day, we will venture out from the fly shop. If you plan on attending, please email Rudy to let him know you will be there!
Our guest speaker will be Austin Parr. He will be going over "Conventional Tactics for Trout" and will be largely talking about the proper time and place to set down the fly-fishing equipment and break out conventional gear to be more successful out on the water. Whether the wind is blowing down in South Park or you are dealing with extra picky fish on some of the most pressured tailwaters, utilizing various conventional tactics that many fly-fisherman overlook can truly produce strikes that otherwise would not happen. Although there can be a negative connotation associated with conventional tackle in some fly fishing communities, when utilized properly, spinning tackle can not only be effective but can also be safe and ethical for the fishery.
Austin Parr is a local fishing guide that has managed, and been the buyer for Discount Fishing Tackle for the last seven years. Although he specializes in warm water fishing that includes walleyes smallmouth, and largemouth bass, he also guides for and regularly fishes high country lakes and rivers for various species of trout. He has had a passion for the outdoors for his entire life and is truly privileged to be able to incorporate this passion into his everyday work. Whether teaching clients on guide trips or talking to customers in the shop, having the ability to help other anglers catch more fish is Austin's number one goal in the industry.
In addition to our speaker, it is time for our annual meeting. The first 10-15 minutes of our Chapter Meeting this month will be dedicated to the C.C.A. Annual Business/State of the Chapter Meeting. Various board members will update you on the status of the chapter and different initiatives we are pursuing. We would also like to encourage everyone to volunteer. There are various committees and Board positions that could use members, i.e. youth outreach, HEART, conservation projects, etc.
All positions are volunteer and only require a modest effort and time commitment with a three year term. Please consider your potential for one of these rolls or nominate another willing and current Cherry Creek Anglers chapter member.
