Important Info for Club Fishing Trips

As a reminder, club fishing trips are limited to active club members.  Unless stated otherwise, we can not accommodate non-members on club sponsored trips due to the club's insurance policy. 

Generally speaking, each of the trips is assigned to a trip coordinator to take sign-ups, arrange logistics and communicate info about the trip to the folks that signed up.  The easiest way to sign up for a trip is at the club meetings, but you don't have to be excluded if you can't make it.  If a trip coordinator is listed for an event in the newsletter or club website, you can get in touch with them directly; the EC member's phone numbers are all listed in the club newsletter.  Next best bet is to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and I will forward your requests over to the appropriate trip coordinator.

The purpose of the sign-ups is to help the coordinator gauge the number of people attending, the amount of food required (if it will be provided on a given trip) and to help communicate last minute updates/changes in logistics, say if there is bad weather, or a meeting place is changed, etc..  For the boat trips, where the number of available spots can be limited, the trip coordinator will make every attempt to match up open spots on club member's boats with other members, but in some cases not everyone who signs up will be able to get a spot on a boat.

Once the sign ups have been completed, the coordinator will generally get in touch with everyone via email/cellphone to provide them the logistics on the trip, such as where/when to meet up, recommended tackle and flies, etc.  Members should also let the coordinator know if they require any gear (PFDs for the boat trips, for example) or have any other needs.

Just as important as signing up for a trip, members should make every effort to let the trip coordinator know if their plans change and they cannot make a trip or will be arriving late.  This way the trip coordinator will not be holding up the trip waiting for you to arrive or before moving to another location if plans change during the course of the trip.
