You really should put a general meet up time on it. Doesn't have to be exact, you can have a range. But it'd suck for a newbie to show up, expecting someone to lead them and help them, and nobody's around.

With PP in, and Swattie, myself, and k-bob?? as maybe's, there's the potential to have a pretty strong brookie contingent that could split up a bunch of different ways and take quite a few newbies on an adventure. Depending on demand. But those groups probably ain't making lunch.

730am? We could do a late lunch like 2ish, then whoever wants to stick around we could fish a medium sized stream. Would like some feedback.

It's looking pretty good that I'll be there, with the full day open now.

I am fine with whatever as far as the morning meetup time is concerned. 7:30 sounds just fine.

As far as lunch, I'd say it would depend on the interest level in the Brookie fishing. The streams I had in mind are all probably 30-40 minute drives from the meetup location. Add a 20-30 minute hike to get into/out of some of them and it really makes coming back for a lunch impractical, if not impossible. If a decent portion of the group wants to do the Brookie fishing deal, an early evening get together to eat/drink/wrap up the day may make more sense. Say 5:00?

There's some (supposed) good Brookie streams closer, but I'm not as familiar with those and would need to depend on pcray, kbob, or PP to help lead on those, assuming those guys will be there.

If there isn't much interest in the Brookie fishing, and fishing the bigger streams is the consensus, then I think a midday break for lunch/beers would work just fine.

Mostly depends on what guys want to do it sounds like...maybe do a roll call on the newbies and see what they're interested in (a few have already chimed in I think)? I'm fine either way...happy to help some of the new guys get into some Brookies...or fish the big water, where I'm probably as much of a newbie as anyone...unless I'm throwing streamers for Smallmouth.

Yeah, I don't know the area real well, except a few that k-bob showed me, and I don't wanna take a group to his honey holes. There's a few close by I've found on a map and wouldn't mind trying. But they'd be experiments. When leading a group I'd probably opt for more of a sure thing to make sure I show them a good time. But sure things in that area, for me, like Swattie, tend to be 30 minutes away.

Anyway you look at it most brookie outings are kind of day long commitments. Even if it were only a 15 minute drive from the meeting location, by the time you hike in and get where you wanted, you wanna stay there, not turn around and hike out, drive around again, to be at a lunch. That type of fishing just doesn't lend itself to the start-stop-start scenario very well.

Sounds like a hassle but I HIGHLY recommend it for newbies. Nothing is better for confidence than saying, wow, I thought I didn't know what I was doing but I just caught 20+ wild trout, and had a lot of fun.

That said, you certainly don't have to get out there real early, plenty of time in the morning to socialize and not get yourself in a rush. Brookie groups could do a morning socialize and/or an evening dinner/bar trip, but probably not anything in between. Morning get together's work well to split groups and compare plans. Otherwise we'd have to form groups ahead of time with meeting places/times, and the leaders have to compare notes on where to go, etc.

I am open to a more formal dinner greet up. Any of the guys going with me, we could easily grab some wings for a quick lunch.

If you say everyone is going to meet at 7:30 AM, I will make that.
I'll bring my food and be prepared for eating in a ditch, wings are us or where ever....

It's sounding like lunch will be by group and if people want to meet later in the day/diner that would be a good idea and I would be OK with that. Then if time permits fish right before dark. Exchange some cell phone numbers when we all meet and see what happens.
