Putah Creek Trout, a local nonprofit working to protect and improve the wild rainbow trout fishery below Monticello Dam, is celebrating spring by sponsoring a fly-tying and fly-casting event from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 26, at the new Lake Solano Nature Center.
Regional expert fly tyers will demonstrate their craft and certified casting instructors will help those who want to learn to cast a fly or improve their skills.
A slide presentation sponsored by the state Department of Fish and Game describing the stat heritage and wild trout program will be shown.
This is also an opportunity to see the Nature Center in its early stage of development as a regional aquatic life education center and walk the developed lakeside trails.
Outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and interests are welcome. Parking is free; an event donation of $5 per family is suggested. The center is at Lake Solano Park, 8685 Pleasants Valley Road, about five miles west of Winters.
