Tom Maumoynier will talk about “Fly Fishing Lake Almanor” on Tuesday, March 25, at a Fly Fishers of Davis meeting.

Lake Almanor, where the Sierra Nevada Mountains greet the Cascades, captures the waters of the surrounding mountains providing an ecosystem teaming with rainbow, brown, eagle lake trout and small mouth bass. Maumoynier, the owner of The Lake Almanor Fly-fishing Co., will discuss the watershed and the numerous streams that branch out in all directions of the lake providing stream fishing with native trout. His full service fly shop, providing equipment, guiding, instruction and of course local flies, is located in Chester.

Maumoynier first started fly fishing in the late 1960s, mostly dry fly fishing in the Sierras. In the ’70s he moved to the north shore of Lake Tahoe were he learned to tie flies and build fly rods. He was fortunate to take a fly-tying class from Joe Huesfelt. The rod building was self-taught and has actually turned out to be a large part of his business. In the ’80s, Maumoynier moved back and forth between Grass Valley and Truckee. In that time period he met my wife, Mary, and had two boys. In Grass Valley, Maumoynier worked at the Mother Lode Anglers for Jeff Adams and got to know Willie Hall.

In 1990, Maumoynier received an offer for employment in the Lake Almanor area. After fond memories of fishing the area as kid with his father, relocating was an easy choice. Maumoynier has guided for several magazine writers, champion fly casters and super bowl heroes. He was a past president of The Lake Almanor Fly Fishing Association.

The meeting is at Emerson Junior High, 2121 Calavaras Ave. Normally, The Fly Fishers of Davis meet to swap fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month in the multipurpose room at Harper Junior High. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests. Those interested in learning to fly fish are welcome to ask anyone about  introductory and intermediate fly fishing courses. The club is also working on a program for young fly fishers under 16.
