Registration is required
You can still get your own site or just come out for one day or all. The Groupsite will be reserved for June 9th (check-in 3:00PM)-12th (check-out 2:00PM). It handles up to 50 people in 8 camper trailers so there should be plenty of room for all. We will split the $428 camping fee among the attendees.

Frenchman's Lake Groupfish
Bringing A Trailer?
Frenchman's Lake is a prolific fishery just an hour or so from Truckee.  This is largely a boat, pontoon or float tube lake with lots of rainbow trout.  Indicator nymphing is the typical action of choice with 6 weight and under rods with floating lines.  A sinking line may also be nice for a change.  Typical stillwater flies will be used including chronomids and callibaetis nymphs.  A more detailed list will be provided to those registered.

We have Group camp site D at the Cottonwood campground at the lake.  It is a large site to accommodate multiple trailers up to 35 feet as well as tents.  We will plan for our usual Sunday night group dinner.  

Last year early June was excellent fishing so we expect to find many willing fish.  This is not a technical fishery so it is perfect for those new to stillwater fishing.

If you haven't been on one of our camp outs, you are encouraged to join this one as we have lots of room and it is close to home!
