The Fly Fishers of Davis will feature John Gantner on Tuesday with a program on Shasta Lake bass.

Shasta Lake, near Redding, is one of the finest public fly-fishing lakes in the state for bass, a Fly Fishers news release says. In the spring and early summer, the bass move to the shallows and offer the fly angler a great opportunity to catch many fish using either top-water flies or shallow running streamers.

Tuesday’s program will give anglers all the information they need to plan a successful fishing trip to Lake Shasta. Gantner has been fly-fishing this lake for more than 35 years and will divulge his techniques for catching Lake Shasta bass.

Gantner has been fly fishing for 40-plus years and fly tying almost as long. He’s published more than 50 articles in national fly fishing and fly tying magazines, and does demonstration fly tying at various venues.

A Redding resident, Gantner is a writer, photographer and full-time fly fisher, and presents all of his programs as an angler and for anglers. He is a long time member of Shasta Trinity Fly Fishers.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap lies and tell fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month at Holmes Junior High School, 1220 Drexel Drive in Davis. The meetings are free and open to everyone.

“We provide a class in fly fishing, so come to the meeting if you would like to learn the sport,” a spokesman says.
