All SIR members and guests are welcome and encouraged to participate in fishing trips as well as attend the monthly meetings.  Next meeting will be Thursday, January 25th, at the Legends Sports Bar and Grill at the Diablo Creek Golf Course at 4050 Port Chicago Highway in Concord, starting at 8:30am.

Whether you fly fish, spin fish, troll or bait fish there will be events of interest. If you are new to fishing or are interested in trying a different type of fishing we have experienced and knowledgeable members happy to share their expertise, and even their equipment. With nearly 100 events scheduled throughout the year, some type of fishing is available almost every week.

December results: Trout at Shadow Cliffs were the main target with 8 members having both good days and not so good days. Four members caught and mostly released a large number of stripers and black bass on the Delta.  Another caught and released an oversized sturgeon. A crab/rockfish trip outside the Gate was successful.  Others fly fished and trolled for steelhead on the Klamath. A large turnout enjoyed our annual Holiday dinner at Zio Fraedos.

Activities Scheduled for January and February:  Several sturgeon/striper trips to the Delta; Several trout outings to Shadow Cliffs, Del Valle and San Pablo Reservoirs ; The annual Sportsmen’s Expo in Sacramento; Luncheon at Barbara’s Fish Trap at Half Moon Bay; and our annual shopping trip to Fisherman’s Warehouse and Bass Pro Shop.
