SAE OUTLOOK

A line from your President …..The San Onofre campout was a lot of fun! We had a mix of weather ranging from cool and windy to calm and sunny. Thankfully, the little rain we had was late at night. Evenings were blessed with fantastic sunsets that outlined Catalina Island. As always, there was plenty of great food. One of the highlights of the outing was a delicious corn beef and cabbage feast with St. Patrick’s Day decorations cooked by Cheryl Brandstrom and Marge Lovelady. I would like to thank them, and Will and Bev Cozzens, for putting this outstanding trip together.

This year we tried something new at the San Onofre outing by including a half-day sports fishing trip out of Dana Point. Though not many fish were caught, the ocean was calm and the views from the boat were beautiful. Thank you to Barbara Gattuso for making all the arrangements for this fishing trip

Several small fish were also caught in the surf at San Onofre. Ron Quinlan won the prize for the largest fish in the outing, but because he didn’t enter the annual surf fishing tournament, Pat Mancha took the lead in the tournament, which began during the outing, with a 6.5-ounce perch.

Low sign-ups forced the cancelation of the Lake Isabella trip, but we have another opportunity to sign up for a fun camp outing at this month’s meeting. The Pinezanita campout will be May 28th – June 2. We always have a great time fishing at Lake Cuyamaca, and wild turkeys and deer are frequent visitors to our camp area. Please see Wagon Master Jim Stevenson if you are interested in joining us.

The day after our meeting, Saturday, April 14th, our club will host the 11th Annual Youth Day at Dixon Lake. This is always the most rewarding event of the year. Please help our Community Events Director, Hank Skaja, in any way you can. We need a lot of volunteers to continue to make this event a huge success. Hank also needs volunteers for the Annual Kiwanis Trout Derby which will be April 21 & 22. Once again, we will be manning the Kiddy Ponds and weighing in trout.

Program Director Ken Harrison has lined up another great guest speaker for this month’s meeting on Friday, April 13. Most of you have attended Ernie Cowan’s talks in the past and know that he is an accomplished outdoor photographer and High Sierra fishing expert. I am sure we can all look forward to his beautiful photos and informative insights into what to expect for the 2018 Sierra trout season. I hope to see you there
