* Central Coast Fly Fishing, presented by Patagonian and the Santa Cruz Fly Fishermen

The first event for the night is a San Lorenzo River walk/talk hosted by Barry Burt, and is limited to no more than 15 people.
Meeting/assembly will be at 5 pm on the bridge just inside Henry Cowell State Park. Attendees are encouraged to park alongside Hwy 9 so they don't have to pay the $10.00 entrance fee. The walk will start at the bridge and continue on down river to the diversion dam where Barry will give another talk. The walk will then continue on for about 1 mile in length finishing up near Gold Gulch. There will be time for the attendees to walk back to their vehicles and drive down to Patagonia in time for the start of the evening's activities.
What: San Lorenzo River walk/talk with river expert Barry Burt of Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout.
When: 5 pm Thursday late afternoon May 5th
Where: Henry Cowell State Park Just inside the Hwy 9 entrance on the bridge.

* Coastal Watershed Council Snapshot Day!

We are gearing up for the 17th Annual Snapshot Day monitoring event on May 7th, 2016!
Snapshot Day is the largest water quality monitoring event in the Central Coast. During the event, hundreds of volunteers work as citizen scientists collecting water quality data from rivers and streams in Santa Cruz, San Mateo, Monterey and San Luis Obispo Counties.
You can join CWC in repping Santa Cruz County by signing up to be a water quality monitoring volunteer here. As a volunteer you will gain experience and skills in water quality monitoring stream by learning survey methods, sample collection and water quality parameter testing. Furthermore, you will get a chance to spend the day along some of Santa Cruz's rivers and streams, having fun with fellow volunteers and competing for prizes.
Volunteer training will be on April 30th at the Santa Cruz Harbor Community Room from 11 to 1 PM. For more information on Snapshot Day, contact CWC's River Scientist Alev at abilginsoy@coastal-watershed.org or (831) 464-9200.

* Open Dates at the Tsuniah Lodge, British Columbia - Eric Brebner

We have a slow week from June 25 to July 2nd. I'm passing this along to past customers and I thought I'd pass it on to you as well. Basically it is 50% off our regular rate including the charter in from Vancouver. So for a one-week stay including your return flight to Vancouver it is $1180 per person. Maybe you and friends need a mid summer break. The weather and fishing at that time of year is perfect. There are six seats available on a first-come first-serve basis.

* Fly tying supplies at Anglers Choice
Currently you will find their fly tying materials in baskets. They have reorganized that part of their store and are trying to decide what they will be doing in the future. When you go by, let them know your needs.
