June Meeting

President’s Thoughts

Ernie Frey  



Thanks to all who helped with trout camp. I have had the pleasure of fishing with some of the graduates of the camp and it is great to see how much the camp has meant to them. They are fishermen who truly enjoy fly fishing. So thanks to all that help to make that happen. Well it is finally summer. Two factors to take into account water temperature and dissolved oxygen. Warmer water make it nice for wet wading. It is great not having to crawl into waders but higher water temperatures make it tough on the trout. So if you want to catch trout, you have to find cooler

Dissolved oxygen dissipates quicker in warm water. What that means to fishermen is that as the water warms the closer to riffles the fish will move. The turbulent water also provides cover for the fish when the water gets lower.

You all know this but I may help a newbie.

June’s meeting will be Barleys in Maryville on Tuesday, June 26 . Social hour starts at 6 pm and business meeting at 7pm. Our speaker will be Michael Hicks from the TVA River Forecast Center. Hopefully he will tell us “The Whole Dam Story”.

July’s meeting will be Thursday, July 26 at River John’s. Burgers and dogs will be provided but plan to bring a side dish.
