Jack Mitchell and the Klickitat
Jack Mitchell and the Klickitat
The 2014 NFA Garage Sale will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 at the April 17th membership meeting. If you are selling stuff, be sure to come early to set up your table. 10 percent of all proceeds go to the club. There will be refreshments and lots of socializing as well as buying and selling. After a brief business meeting we will have the evening program.
Following the sale Jack Mitchell will be presenting a program on steelhead fishing the Klickitat. Jack is one of those legendary fishing guides who has been instrumental in exposing people to the Yakima, Upper Columbia, Naches, and Klickitat Rivers. Safe to say there will be no photos of timeshares on glorified irrigation ditches.

The NFA was founded in 1972 and is based on the premise that fly fishing not only encourages the conservation of natural resources but also provides a means for individuals to come together to learn about and enjoy beautiful settings and fishing experiences in the Northwest.
Anyone who is interested in fly fishing is encouraged to come to our monthly meetings to meet members and learn about the NFA. Club membership is open to all ages and skill levels. We welcome individuals, couples, and families interested in the sport of fly fishing.
Here is your chance to catch big rainbows and browns in a spectacular setting. Dry Falls Lake has a healthy population of browns and rainbows, and nearby Banks Lake has schools of large carp cruising the shallows. If these species are on your bucket list, then attending this outing is a must. The club will be camping at the 7,000 acre Sun Lake /Dry Falls State Park. Dry Falls Lake is in the park and Banks Lake is four miles away.
Want to catch a "never give up the fight" bass, maybe a carp or what many consider the best eating fish in the world? Yes? Then join our host master angler and bass fishing author David Williams and other club members who will not miss this outing because it is an excellent opportunity to do just that: catch a “smallie” or a freshwater bonefish or a walleye in the warm lake waters of Central Washington.

The weather for our April outing could not have been any more perfect. The project at this location involved clearing a section on a hillside of thin patches of blackberry growth. This was a fun and rewarding chance to launch an attack on these pests and we were given tools that made the work safe and easy, so it was fun too.
There was a good turnout from the NFA. Nine members gave up this Saturday morning to represent the NFA at the Mountains to Sound Greenway project.
