We had been fishing all year, up until February, without much
success. Covid restrictions causing closures and access
problems, lack of rain, and low water temperature had all but
stopped us. Many of us fished for sturgeon. Many of us did not
catch any sturgeon. Some of us fished for trout. Some of us did
not catch any trout. Tom Kostik and Ron Lew caught a few
stripers. Then our local lakes opened, and the winter trout
bonanza began. We are so blessed with San Pablo Reservoir,
Lafayette Reservoir, and other close ponds being generously
stocked. Stan Wong, Phil Scimonelli, both fishing from shore,
and Carl Moyer, Bob Hillacker, Brion Beetz, and even Bob
Lively in his Kayak caught lots of red-meated trout. Martin
Steinpress caught trout from the Stanislaus River on flies.
Because our activity happens outdoors, we have been able to
pursue our passion, observing all the COVID limitations.
However, we no longer had SIR sponsored in-person events.
That is being changed. We do have meetings and discussions
All SIR members and guests are welcome, and indeed encouraged, to participate in fishing trips as well as attend the monthly meetings by ZOOM. Meeting starts at 8:30 am, come early. Contacts are Ron Lew 925-550-4166 and Carl Moyer 925-685-5243.
