Cottonwood Lakes and the Golden Trout

If you live in California, you probably have explored the Sierra Nevada Mountains numerous times. It's a formidable range rising to over 14,000 feet with numerous streams flowing towards the east or the west from the Sierra Crest. An exception to this flow is the Kern River which flows in a southerly direction along a fault line within the midst of these mountains. This exception allowed the possibility of a new species of trout to develop within this mountain range, our California Golden Trout. Click here to read the article.

Our Mission

  • To promote, improve and enjoy all phases of fly fishing.
  • To maintain a high standard of true sportsmanship and promote social relations among its' members.
  • We, individually, endeavor to take at least one youth (beginner/no age restriction) fly fishing annually; instruct them, to the best of our ability, in the art and responsibilities that are soon to be wholly theirs.
  • To fraternize and cooperate with organizations whose aims and purposes preserve our waters and to promote the sport.
  • To provide instruction and information in fly casting, flytying, rod building and entomology. These classes and/or clinics will be open to the public with no fee
