The Fly Fishers of Davis will host Jason Hartwick on Tuesday for a program titled “North Coast Steelhead.” The rivers of California’s North Coast are some of the most famous winter steelhead waters in the world. These rivers are where targeting steelhead on the fly began.

In the past 10 years, restrictions on logging, the elimination of hatcheries and a policy of 100 percent catch and release on all wild steelhead are among the factors that have successfully rehabilitated these rivers. They boast not only healthy returns of wild steelhead but also offer spectacular scenery, a news release said.

“There is no better backdrop when fishing than emerald green waters lined by giant California redwoods,” the release added.

Winter steelheading is “not for the faint of heart,” the release said. The fish average 7 to 8 pounds, are chrome-bright and are full of fight.

“Every cast lends the opportunity of landing the fish of a lifetime,” the release added.

Hartwick was born and raised in Sacramento and has been fly fishing for more than 17 years. He attended the University of Texas on a golf scholarship and pursued professional golf for four years after school. While Hartwick grew up playing golf and trying to make a career of it, he spent most of his youth fishing the rivers of California’s Central Valley for trout and steelhead. He hooked his first steelhead on the American River and has been crazy about them ever since.

Although he grew up in Sacramento, he considers the Trinity River his home river. He has been fly fishing the Trinity River watershed for more than 11 years, enjoying the variety of fishing it provides throughout the seasons.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap lies at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month. This month’s meeting is in the multipurpose room at North Davis Elementary School, 555 E. 14th St. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests.

“If you’re interested in learning to fly fish, come to the meeting and ask anyone about our Fly Fishing 101 course,” the news release said. “The club is also working on a program for young fly fishers (under 16).”
