Not sure what red tape is attached but my buddies and I (6-10 boats) did monthly trout derbies at Melones last year. Not sure what red tape is involved, but is anyone interested in putting together/ participating in one?

Here is the best way to run one of these keep it simple, invite friends and folks by word of mouth, keep fees reasoanble like 10 bucks per person to fish to set a time and date and do it skip getting involved with all the red tape and BS permits, jsut my 2 cents Kent

Keep in mind guys that you can gauge interest in having a derby on the trout board but it is against Sniffer policy to coordinate a derby on this board. *If you want to announce a derby you need to contact Deborah the administrator.
Sniffer Event Policy:
Allow me to take a moment to explain the Fish Sniffer policies regarding the posting of events. In order to make the viewing of this web site and these posts an enjoyable easy to access venue, the Sniffer has adopted a policy of not having events listed on their boards. This policy prevents these boards from filling up with the 100's of events that happen on a monthly basis. We understand the importance of your event but if each person was allowed to post what is important to them the boards would soon become unmanageable. The Sniffer does want important charity and fish preservation events to be listed on the Fish Sniffer. That is why we have an event calendar on the Sniffer. The Sniffer openly invites you to submit your event and information for revue to the Administration by contacting Deborah at: deborah@fishsniffer.com. *

Just call it a "Fest" and whoever wants to throw ten bucks in the kitty for the "biggest" can buy the rest of the guys drinks when it's over. That's about as American as you can get. ;)

Just let me know the "when" part and if I can get there I'll show you all how to catch big fish [smiley=homersimpson.gif]

Win or lose I'll still buy you all a drink... or a soda pop, whatever works.

It's the fun that counts, nothing more. [smiley=winkfs.gif]

Ok, Melones Trout FEST!!! Never really put something too big together. Anyone interested in helping me out (or I can help them out). Message me if so. Also, please throw out some dates. I figure Jan/Feb would be best. One day or two day?

Hope the Melones fest works out. Sounds fun, maybe make it a family thing for kids, I'll put up a nice rod and reel as a prize for whatever. Feb. sounds like a good time since there isn't much else going on then it might generate more interest. Are all the campgrounds open there during the winter?

Late Jan will work for Tortuga & I...Feb is pretty busy for us. Just keep us posted. We'll try to participate, as Melones is our closest lake. We'll be out there this Sunday (Dec 2) checking it out.

We have plans to be there the 18th of Dec. for the day. If you make it a kids too deal we will bring the kids. Prety much any weekend in Jan. or Feb. will work for us.

Ok, here's the deal. Like I said before, buddies of mine do a monthly "FEST" at Melones. I send out an email when ever we are going to do them. Please send an email to kcolefishing@sbcglobal.net if you would like to be added to the email notices.
