- October 2: Great Lakes Salmon Trip
Trips dates subject to change - will likely be Wed through Sunday in early Oct. through the first week of Oct. based on prior history. We’ll fish the Milwaukee River just a mile or two above Lake Michigan. The exact dates will be set only a couple weeks ahead, as we need to time the King Salmon run. Mostly Kings but may also be Coho salmon along with lake-run rainbows and browns. Sight fishing with easy wading, fish will average 20-30 lbs with some bigger. Heavy rods (10wt) recommended. Can drive or fly - your choice. Will stay in hotel near downtown Milwaukee just minutes from the river. For more information, contact Richard at 970-219-2019.
- October 2: Social Fly Tying for Members of Rocky Mountain Flycasters
Rocky Mountain Flycasters members gather the first Wednesday of the month for a little Pub 'N ' Dub at the Gilded Goat. Each sponsored session features a different fly to tie. Some members come and simply enjoy the company of others while tying. If you are a beginner, or need to come straight from work, we will have loaner tools and equipment available. Marty Staab will be hosting this event, so contact him by email with any questions or to RSVP. Please include a comment to to let him know if you intend to participate in the featured pattern, and especially if we can help provide tools and a vise.
I hope to see a lot of you at the Gilded Goat Brewing Company, 3500 South College, right next to Trader Joe’s.
The selected fly will be announced.

Note of the Day:
Trout, especially wild trout, will seek out the most ideal water temperatures, even if they have to move considerable distances. Even freshly stocked, domesticate hatchery trout will search locally for the best comfort zones.
