This month we will have a virtual presentation from Phil Fischer entitled Fly Fishing Central Oregon Stillwaters. The area along Hwy 97 just above the California border to the Washington border is a fly fishing paradise. Bordered by the Cascades to the West and the Great Basin to the East, the scenery and diversity of stillwaters is incredible! Phil will lead us on a journey throughout the lakes in the area and will share many of the waters, including best times to visit, specific locations, major hatch periods and tactics for fly fishing these waters. Some of the waters featured include Hosmer Lake, Crane Prairie, East Lake, Davis Lake, Wickiup Reservoir, Diamond lake, Klamath and Agency Lakes, and other lesser known lakes. Ever since Phil received a fly tying kit for his 10th birthday he has never been far from a vice and now has over 45 years of fly fishing and fly tying experience. He was tutored by the legendary fly fisherman and tier Andre Puyans later teaching fly tying classes at Andre’s Creative Sports in Pleasant Hill, CA. He owns Phil’s Custom Trout Flies, with fly fishing customers throughout the United States who count on his expertise in solving fly fishing puzzles on their own home waters. Phil specializes in pattern for stillwaters in Central Oregon. His Callibaetis Life Cycle patterns consistently catch fish and are in high demand. These flies have been featured in several publications and their tying instructions can be view at Phil Fischer You Tube Channel.
