 Hot Creek

July 15-18, 2016

 Streamkeeper - John Williams



Our club has been traveling to the Ranch for at least 30 years, because of our loyalty to the ranch and our desire to abide by the rules we continue to have solid dates every year in July. The ranch is a dry fly only establishment.

The original log cabin still stands in the middle of the complex. Today they feature nine housekeeping cabins with microwaves, stove, comfortable beds complete kitchens. One of the rules is a  three rod limit  per cabin and preferably 2.

You will note that we have a few cabins with three in them only because of their request and permission of the management. We have had to ask members to leave the ranch because of unruly behavior so we ask that all rules be observed.

The ranch in managed by Kevin Peterson and his wife. Kevin has quite allot of experience in the Sierra's and has spoken to our club in the past. This years dates are July 15-18, 2016.

Baring any unforeseen rate increases the cost of the trip in $400.00 per person which includes Saturday night BBQ steak dinner, you are responsible for all your other meals while at the ranch.

If you have questions please call John Williams (951) 236-0862
