Special Spring Day at Sportsman Park

5-10-17 by Rich Lewis

I made a solo trip to Sportsman Park Wednesday May 10th, 2017. I arrived at 11:30 AM. There were several RV’s parked in the lot; yet no one was fishing. The temps were warm-high 70’s/low 80’s, the winds light and the water clarity was very good. Since the water was calm and clear, I could see trout just about everywhere I looked. There were surface feeders to big dark shadows lurking in deeper water.

I began fishing a ...

Now that the ice is off the local waters we are all thinking about wetting lines again. In between the late winter/spring storms, there just might be some favorable windows of decent weather that will allow us to get out and fish again soon.

NCFF Second Pond-Fly Fishing Area

 

 

 

In early 2015 NCFF petitioned the Tonopah City Manager and the local Rotary Club to dedicate the Sportsman Park “second pond” for use as a fly fishing pond.

NCFF President Mark Madsen and members Rich Lewis, Hep Klem and Don Kaminski installed the sizable sign at the ...

NCFF Field Report-by Rich Lewis

A few weeks ago, Bob Perchetti, his Grandson Gabe (NCFF’s youngest member at 11 Years Old), Mark Madsen and myself headed out to fly fish after a breakfast at the Station House. It was a cold blustery spring day in Round Mountain. When we arrived at Hadley Pond, we were only anglers on their. It seemed more like a winter day with that cold north wind.
Gabe was brandishing his brand new Redington 5 WT combo, which had been a ...

Part #2 of Three- Gear Series! Rod, Reel & Line Choices for Fly Fishing Central Nevada

Do you actually need a fly reel to catch a small trout? Not really. You can catch trout up to 15” safely with a cane pole or Japanese-style Tenkara telescopic rod, a “string” the length of your pole and a fly. Fishing with a “pole” can be rewarding and a bunch of fun too. However, a “pole” won’t cover all of our bases here. Most of us will want to use a fly reel, fly line and fly rod combination ...

Three Part Gear Series! Rod, Reel & Line Choices for Fly Fishing Central Nevada

 

The Central Nevada region covers vast tracts of high desert lands. The elevations of our fishing spots can range from 3000 feet all the way up to 10,000 feet. Throughout this arena are waters holding a surprising variety of interesting game fish species.
