5 Dot Clinic Sept 27th-29th

This is it folks, the 5 Dot Mega Clinic. If you haven’t heard of 5 dot it’s one of the West’s best private stillwater fisheries. I’ll be teaming up with Doug O, Dave Stanley , Dan LeCount, and Ernie Gulley. It’s an A team of top guides teaching all of Doug’s tricks and tactics. There will be four students to one guide. Stillwater fishing is not just for old folks, it’s a lot of fun and you don’t need a wading staff. Please get in contact with either Doug or I if you’d like to attend. Doug’s contact is down below. Here’s a little on the lake and the clinic.

5 DOT Ranch is the largest working cattle ranch in the state of California.  On the ranch there is a 400 acre private lake (Round Valley Reservoir) which is located between the town of Susanville and Eagle Lake. This reservoir is locally known as “5 DOT Res.” and has very limited access. It is full of powerful Triploid Rainbow Trout and is the perfect place for any level of flyfisher to hone their stillwater skills.

The clinic will be a  2 1/2 day fishing event which will cover advanced stillwater techniques, including aquatic entomology, presenting food items, reading water, and fly selection. The clinics will also cover knot tying, leaders, and proper rigging.  Along with the “Floater no Cator” technique Doug and his staff will teach shoreline wading “peek a boo” style sight fishing, float tube, pontoon boat, small pram, and large boat techniques including “Loch Style” fishing.  These clinics offer plenty of “on the water” instruction as well as many hours of angling time to practice these techniques.
