Paflyfish's 1st annual steelhead jamboree will be held at Folly's end campground on October 30th to November 1st. Here's the webpage for Folly's. Those attending please RSVP in this thread. Below will be a list of those already planning on attending. You may come for any portion of the event. Some will be staying at local hotels, but if you would like to camp at the campground the cost is $8 per person per night. Please also notate if you plan on camping so I can give a solid number of campers to the owner.

Details:

People, I'm sure, will filter in throughout the day on Friday. I have the pavillion reserved for all 3 days at Folly's, so that will be our central meeting point. I believe there are plans in force to meet for some food or drinks on Friday night. I will be most likely coming up on Saturday and be bringing some breakfast food. If someone want's to bring other items, or volunteer to make coffee, that would be a good help. We will follow the same schedule on Sunday morning.

The campground is right on Elk. The stream conditions at that time may depend on where fishing is the best. As a general rule, larger streams take longer to get muddy and take longer to clear, and vise versa on smaller streams.

Here is a list of things to bring...

food, clothes(prepare to layer or change if you get wet) and supplies for extended stays. A 5-8wt rod and reel with tippet ranging from 0x to 4x. Waders, tackle, flies steelhead flies, raincoat, net, etc.

There are approx. 20 people coming so far with several camping out. If you would like to come and want to organize a carpool do so in this thread so that as many people who want to join us can. If you have any other questions feel free to ask away.

See the salt thread. If my gear is up to snuff, I am in for that. I can go bright and early on the sunday. I will just have to stay sober at the wedding!

Sorry I can't make it Ryan. I was really looking forward to it.

For those making the trek from the East, there's a few of us meeting at Cabela's @ 6am on Friday (10/30).

I have no idea of how many are meeting there, but this might provide a carpooling opportunity. A buddy of mine that works at the big C expressed serious interest in joining this adventure, and there may be several more as well.

At the very least, it provides an opportunity to "caravan" up there, and we'll get you to Folly's and more if you don't know the way. We could wind up with a convoy of muperes! Bring an FRS radio for on the road communication if you have one.

For those with GPS capability, you can get coordinates for LOTS of stream access points at this link ...

I used this technnique last year, and it worked well...

Sounds good guys. I gave Jim at Folly's a general number of who's coming and who's camping. I'm sure he'll make room for a few more tents last minute if that's the case.

Quick question related to gear. On my 8wt I don't have a floating line, I have an intermediate sink tip. Is this okay or should I go out and get a floating line? Thanks.

Jason, get the floating line unless you are going to fish the lake. The deepest holes aren't more than about 6 feet deep and most fishing will be done between 1-4 feet. You can get an inexpensive level, and may only have to invest $20 or less.

Jason - If you want a top quality line for $27 plus shipping (they're having a 10% off special), I highly recommend this.

It's become my favorite line, and is the equal of the major manufacturer's premium lines (it's made by Cortland).

Hook and Hackle is in Pennsylvania - nice bunch of guys.
