Hope others will join me…..Tim

JANUARY 7, 2019 AT 1:02 PM
I would like to Volunteer for Sunday afternoon.
Josh, the 10th is a Thursday night, is this correct? Also, would you like me to tie & teach a simple Marabou streamer? jes holler!
Joel – Yes – It would be great if you did that as one of the flies we tie. It is tomorrow (Thursday night). I had to change it due to other commitments that I have tonight.
What do we need to bring?
I’m planning on cooking pan seared pork chops and Al Gratin potatoes. We could use a few other side dishes.
I am bringing green beans.
I will bring enough hooks, beads, marabou for the 8 people that registered.My pleasure.
We’re still on for tomorrow (Saturday 11AM-3PM) … stop by with your gear and get some help cleaning it up and prepping for 2019 fishing! Grab a bowl of Josh’s famous chili and clean your line, replace your backing (yes, there is a very good reason to do this … especially on your steelhead, salmon and other big fish gear.
Going to have to cancel! Grand daughter is spending the w/e with us. Sled riding is this mornings new agenda!And then a little fly tying lessons! Cheers!
Randy – I’m sure it will be on. But being disconnected is nice isn’t it. I’m ready for some awesome fires.
Being disconnected is nice, but there’ll be hell to pay if I don’t call to tell my daughter goodnight.
I would like to spend about 3 to 4 hrs tying flies.
Okay — so I paid online and got TWO confirmations. Did I pay twice? If so, how do I stop payment in one of them?
Thanks for any help.
Please sign me up for this.
Ken, hit register above.
Sorry guys, had to bail. Have a great trip.
This is the time of the year when the bass start moving out of the deep water and towards the shallows. It’s also the rainy season that blows the rivers out so lake fishing is optimum an cures that cabin fever syndrome. Big poppers, streamers and noisy lures are the norm. Water temps are usually in the upper 50’s and these fish are looking to eat something . Dust off those boats and join the party.
Just registered and paid a $200.00 deposit via Square. I would like one of the trailers.
I volunteer! Sounds like a great event for the kids.
Just following up with Tim. I want to be in the B&B single occupancy room. Thank you.Tom
wanting to stay in bed and breakfast
I believe I will be able to make this trip Please add me
Ron, hit register above.
Go to the event page , scroll down to member registration, manage my registration link and sign up for the event, I can’t do it for you, I’m sure the guys coming from Oh & Ky will probably meet somewhere. and caravan over.
I’m bring JB with me too.
I volunteered to take this trip over from David Houben. Just checked the gages at Clay City (Red River) which has always been my way of figuring out if the smaller tribs to the Red will be fishable. It is not encouraging … the gage is at 15′ up from 3′ on 2/6 and the discharge is at 5000 cfs (up from 300 on 2/6). Ever hopeful, I’ll wait until Friday top check again and make a final call. Folks from up here can meet us at the Shoe Carnival/Staples parking lot at 6:45AM. We’ll carpool or caravan down stopping for breakfast around Georgetown then proceed to the Rest Area off the Slade Exit of Bert T Combs PKWY to meet up with any of the folks from Lex/Gtown area at 9AM. We’ll take a look at all the usual suspects (Indian Creek and the East Fork, MIddle Fork and
With 1″ to 3″ of accumulating snow across the whole region, I am going to CANCEL THIS EVENT.
I am going to try to make this as long as nothing comes up.
Bringing Rod Sherman, fairly new member also.
Tucker and Kathy look forward to the May 11th Fishing Class with Susan!
Let us know what we need to bring….we are new to the sport and currently do not have any gear.
Hello ladies! I will start sending out emails about the event – if you want to chat personally please reach out to Kerry@nkff.org
Basic needs are a hat and sun glasses (safety first! always protect your eyes and head) I would reco long pants and close toed shoes. I usually have a jacket or sweater for the inside portion as that can run cool. Susan will have rods for those who don’t have them but if you want to bring your own please feel free to do that.
I will send out more details soon!
I would like one of the campers if available.
I wanted to eat but it would not let me
Dave, I’ll let you eat. -Mark

Please reply with your name and I’ll add you to the list.
Late to register. Would like to attend – but no dinner please
I’m afraid I will be unable to attend the 3/7 meeting.
Kerry and I will take the 3/22 float with Ripple.
please remove me from the March meeting, sick won’t be able to make it
Hope to get some pond fishing in with the Crestview Hills neighbors.
What should I bring with me? Really looking forward to this!
Sounds like fun – looking forward to it!
Tie some weedless streamers for the bass using a 3/0- 4/0 worm hook 3-4 inches long ,lots of examples on Pinterest and YouTube. Type in weedless bass flies as a search.I like tying in a small glass rattle to provide some noise. Lots of different materials can be used, craft fur, marabou sf blend, thin feathers,etc,with some flash, use your imagination
See you at the lake
I would like to register for this casting clinic, must I go thru PayPal or can I just pay at the event? Thanks, Marty Carvan
You don’t have to have a PayPal account…you can pay with a credit card.
Ken Santo & I are going out Wednesday 27th to pre fish Stanfield and Richart lake before the scheduled float trip on Saturday 30th, if anyone would like to join us. Call my cell #
As of today the forecasts weather for Saturday is rain & wind, I will make the call Friday if the float trip is still on
Will be unable to attend BOD meeting. Out of town on vacation for Springbreak.
Kathy Barksdale here. Tucker (Karen Allen) and I are registered. Tucker cannot come on Saturday now due to a family event. The website won’t let me change to 1 registration. It only seems to want to let me cancel, and I still intend to come. I will email Kerry, as well. My email is email@example.com.
Are food and drinks permitted at the library?
Light snacks and drinks with lid or cap only. We’re in one of the conference rooms and can’t have meals there. Wolf down a Bug Mac on the ride over:)
It appears I’m the only person to sign up. Is his a legit trip?
Rich, this is a legit trip. I need to check water flows up there though. I’ll let you know at meeting.
Thanks for the info. I will have to see if I have any white rabbit fur left around but may need to “trade for some” if you guys have any extra available at the tying time.
Please sign me up if this trip reopens.
Sterling … It’s reopened and you must be included otherwise you couldn’t reply. Do you want the single small camper at Susan’s or a B&B room?
I’ve room for two more people in my truck and room for three more kayaks on my kayak trailer. If anyone would like to ride with me instead of driving yourselves we could share the fuel costs. Let me know if one anyone wants to ride with me and or, if anyone needs me to transport your kayak. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on this trip.
All, if anyone wants to ride with me I have room for two more people and three kayaks.
Please disregards this second post
The registration started on May 3, but in one day it is closed. I am not building a rod, I wanted to help with the class and see if any of the members would need some thread that I would like to get rid of. Derek
I picked up some white rabbit fur from Delamere and Hopkins. I should have a little extra.
Sorry I had to cancel, something came up with with work.
I would like to participate if there is a cancellation. It would be my first activity Ethel club.
Any suggestions on what flies will work best in the area for this trip?
Bruce … Last year the chartreuse Mop Fly out-fished everything including standard nymphs, midges and wooly-buggers … I’ve never seen anything like it. This year Susan says the fishing has been tough because of the high-water and big-streamers and tiny nymphs have been the ticket so far. The water should be back to normal by the time we go so I’m thinking chartreuse, orange and cream Mop Flies, a selection of standard nymphs (GRHEs, BHPTs, Zug-Bugs, Princes, etc), wooly buggers, big jointed streamers, 5- & 10-ft sink tip sections (with loops to attach to end of fly line) should cover you. We might have a trip-prep fly-tying night before the event.
I understand you are staying through Sunday the 9th. Did you want a room in the B&B? Or, if we max out the trip (12) would you rather share the cost of the cabin at Betty’s Bend (about 4 miles from Susan’s place on the river) with two others? The Campers at Susan’s (all taken already) and rooms at the B&B are $75 a day and includes dinners at Susan’s. The cabin will be about $85 a day and does not include diner (but it is available at Susan’s for $25 a night). If she does what we did last year, Breakfast and lunch fixings can be had at Susan’s for another $10 or $15 a day) … absolutely worth it. Let me know about your accommodation preference asap. Thanks … Mike Arnold
We would like to stay in the B&B if possible.
We are staying Friday and Saturday, leaving Sunday afternoon.
All … Right now it looks like we have 10 confirmed for the trip (Mike Arnold, Joe Cruse, Sterling DuVall, Tim Guilfoile, Ron Kilmer, Bruce Lane, Rich & Kerry Premec, Jack Randall, Tom Smith). Mike, Jack, Rich & Kerry and Sterling at Susan’s place. Joe, Tim, Bruce, Ron and Tom staying at the B&B. We can put two more at the B&B and max the trip at 12 without using the cabin at Betty’s Island. Do any of you know two folks who might be wanting to go?
I registered and paid this morning. Is there still room? I could check to see if my friends from Indiana want to join us, too.
When you register, please put a note if you can provide one of the X# of “powered” boats needed.
So far the rain / weather has not changed the plan … Right now I have Chris Puckett and his wife meeting Doug Pfetzer and me (trailering both our kayaks) at Staples / Shoe Carnival parking lot at 6AM. The Puckett’s will follow us down to Broken Bridge where we will unload Doug & my kayaks & gear. Doug will stay with the boats/gear and the Puckett’s will then follow me to Knight’s Bridge t park my car/trailer. Then they will take me back up to Broken Bridge where I will get them started wade fishing before following Doug downstream in my boat. Anyone else trailering kayaks should do the same (i.e. unload at B-B and park at K-B and get ferried back up to B-B to put in). Anyone else meeting us at Staples/Shoe Carnival can also follow us down.
Dan, I will be there but may need to leave before the end due to a conflict.
Kerry, very nice article
, thanks for posting
I will try to make it, most tuesdays I have Vets.
Do I need any equipment for this class?
Three weeks out and we already have eleven (11) folks registered. It looks like we will max out the class with 15 students so we will need a couple more casting and knot-tying instructors. When you register be sure to state whether you are assisting with instruction or taking the class as a student.
Looking forward to learning about bugs.
I forgot that our family had some father day activities plan on that date. I will not be able to attend.
I’ve got my flight booked already. United Airlines 453 departing CVG on 8/11/19 @ 4:50pm. Layover in Denver then arriving in Cody at 9:55pm. Returning from Cody on Sunday 8/18/19 @ 8:40am layver in Denver arriving in CVG @ 3:55 pm. I’m really looking forward to the trip. Thanks, Josh Lillard
Registration link? I’ll be there.
I’ll keep an eye on the creek level and give the go or no-go Thursday afternoon.
Currently running at 1574 CFS outflow. They need to drop the lake 1.7 inches to reach summer pool. I’ll be watching this to see if we need to postpone the trip.
I check the outflow at https://www.lrl.usace.army.mil/Missions/Civil-Works/Recreation/Lakes/Cave-Run-Lake/
I have booked the same flights.
Mike Hebbeler and Steve Averdick are flying Delta Aug 11 return 18th here are flights and times
to slc 1306 7:05 -8:52am
to cody 4323 11:05am – 12:25pm
to slc 4323 1:00 pm -2:20pm
to cvg 1208 5:20 pm -10:45pm
I just spoke with the COE at Cave Run Lake. They have bumped up the CFS Outflow to 1000. They have to drop the lake 4.1 feet to get to summer pool and to do this will take 3500 CFS. WE ARE POSTPONING THIS TRIP TILL SUNDAY, 6/30/2019.
Gunpowder is up about 6″ at Camp Ernst Road. That alone would not bother this event, but it is also running the color of coffee (boston style muddy brown) and that effects the safety issue. SO WE ARE POSTPONING THIS UNTIL WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26TH.
Looking forward to it. What do I need to bring?
Allan, bring a buck or two for materials, you’ll get a baggie of what you need when you get there.
We’ll post a pic and materials list here so that you’ll know what to buy in the future.
Excited to learn more about Gunpowder Creek and its entimology!
Plans are changing a bit. As of right now we have 11 youngsters (13 – 15 years) so we will only have ONE FISHING SESSION from 10AM to Noon. We’ll give the students a 15 – 30 casting lesson on the grass and then head to the stream in several small groups. I’ll have the rods setup with new leaders. In addition t Tim G, Wayne N and Sack S above we have four other volunteers (Paul Dusing, Dave Huff, Bruce Lane and Lucas Vessa). Let’s meet at the Gunpowder Creek Nature Park (at end of Sperti Lane off of Hanover BLVD off of Rogers Lane) at 8:30AM. We will watch the weather and Creek conditions to decide if a postponement is necessary.
We have 15 students registered now for this event on Saturday. Kincaid Park and the Library are providing lunch. Dan Bottoni is joining us to help out.
Do we park at the lake parking lot? Most of Camp Ernst property is private
The creek is perfect for the session tonight. I hope to see all of you there
The lake is still 3.2 Feet above summer pool and running 3700 CFS only changes it little more than 1/2 foot each day. Looks like once again we’re going to have to cancel this trip. My apologies.
Is this shore fishing only or a combo kayak/shore fishing?
To everyone wanting to attend this event; the lake has moss about 18″ to 6′ out from 85% of the shore line.
the taller grass. weeds and growth is about 14″ high around the lake, with a few narrow areas where the local stomp the growth down,
the fishing is good, IN 2.5 hours I landed 7 Bluegill and 4 bass, on a Keith Haung’s tied bluegill candy, Chartrouse with red bead.
Surface water temp was about 90 F.
Used a 9 ft 5 wt.rod, 7 foot leader and tippet, the tippet was 4 x, only to pull the fish though the moss.
and yes’s the food at the Restaurant is still good
I don’t care what Tim says about you Ron, you’re alright.
if you want to sneek in a belly boat ( for us a really BIG Belly boat) you could get in the water, but it is maybe a 2 acre lake if that
and MJA will most likely be pissed at you
Lake is too small for a kayak and there is no way to launch.
Not 100% sure I can make it, might not be at dinner. Gonna try to make the fishing though.
Hope you can make both Randy, but it should be a perfect evening for fishing…..so make that for sure.
Thanks Jack for the information needed to make this trip successful and
Tim, Rich and Kerry for agreeing to drive me out and back!
I will be fishing in Wyoming at this time I hopefully !!
All … Several folks expressed interest in this trip at tonight’s meeting. For members who may not have a kayak or canoe, two of those folks each have an extra kayak available if you would want to borrow one. We also have one 4-kayak trailer and two 2-kayak trailers with an extra spot or two for a kayak … so you don’t have to trailer your own (and we minimize the number of vehicles
we have driving up and around (and parking). Contact Mike Arnold if interested in borrowing a kayak and trailering one or more.
Tim, please add a second person to my entry. My wife Mary Ellen would also like to attend this movie. Are you getting tickets for all of us?
I plan to drive down Friday morning (leaving around 9AM). In time to get to cabin, unload camp gear and then head to Blue Hole or Garnettsville to fish until 4PM or so, then head back to camp. Anyone wanting rideshare down with me should mention that in a comment with your registration.
I want to fish tomorrow afternoon too. Can you give me specific directions to the Blue Hole?
Get yourself down there, Blue Hole is a spot up deeper in the park. They’ll give you directions when you’re there.
Add Mike & Cathy Hebbeler to the list of signups. Sounds like it’s going to be a great time.
Route 1 may not be open all the way from Greendale to Rt. 52.
US 52 is closed just N of the exit off I74 so you have to go 1 exit W to hiway 1 which will get you to 52 above the closure. I fished over there this a.m. about 3 bridges N of Brownsville and did pretty well, including an 18″ and 16″ smallmouth. I have never fished the section this trip will float but know the rest of the creek well so if anyone wants some guidance on where else you might go let me know.
Mike – I am in for Friday, Sat. And leaving on Sunday
Got your message. I paid my $100 for 1 slot, and now I can’t attend either this or the NKFF Outing. I have an older brother with a failing heart in University of Michigan right now, and they just took him off of the heart transplant list. He’s 65, also diabetic and has kidney issues. I need to be available if things don’t stabilize. Please pray for his improved health.
I tried encouraging the wife to rep the family, but, she insists on staying here w/me. Prayerfully, we’ll have better fortune in 2020. Enjoy the NKFF trip and we can talk again afterwords.
Newer member Sebastian Torres is interested and would like to use one of the kayaks. I will be watching the river gage at Abington all this week to be sure the creek will be floatable. Right now it looks fine. I’ll email everyone on the participation list to setup meeting times/places and kayak use/trailering/etc. Currently we have 8 folks signed up. It would be nice to use the 4-kayak trailer, my 2-kayak trailer and another 2-kayak trailer plus one person with an old beater he/she won’t mind leaving at the put in after ferrying us all to it from the Rte 44 parking lot.
Unfortunately I am now double booked this Saturday with events leading up to the start of the semester at NKU and I will not be able to make this trip. I am sorry about that – next time.
Joe Cruse is attending and using his 4-kayak trailer hauling his kayak, Don Schrantz’s kayak, Don’s spare kayak & paddle for Sebastian Torres and maybe Jarold Benson’s kayak. Mike Arnold is trailering his own kayak, Doug Pfetzer is bringing his own (cartop carrier I think). John Czarnecki is trailering his and Bill Mertz’z kayaks, and Ron Francis is using his 4-kayak trailer to bring his kayak, Ken Santo’s kayak, Ken’s spare kayak & paddle (for his friend Jeff Haggedorn). WOW … Eleven on this trip.
We also found out that NON-MOTORIZED WATERCRAFT on most lakes in Indiana REQUIRE a $5 PERMIT on the port side front of the boat. Ron Francis is picking up seven of those permits for us today (Friday) and we will repay him on Saturday
If anyone has questions about the class please reach out to me Kerry@nkff.org 🙂
Hello! If there are questions about the clinic please reach out to me at Kerry@nkff.org. There is a stay over option for this class (Saturday night to Sunday morning) please let me know if you are interested as there is an additional charge.
Look forward to seeing everyone at the clinic!
I will plan on 11-22 thru 11-26!
since these seservations are closed I guess I may not be permitted to attend?
I suggest we get an earlier start if possible; we may not have that wade to ourselves and earlier is almost always better anyway.
I’m planning to meet you at the river unless there is someone who wants to ride-/drive-share with me from the Eastern Cincinnati suburbs. Just let me know where you are planning to meet.
Bruce, at this point I think it’s the main gate parking lot. I’ll probably be there before the KY guys arrive, around 8 a.m., red Subaru Outback.
Is anyone else thinking we should leave earlier? If so, how about meeting at 6:30AM at the Staples / Shoe Carnival Parking lot and leaving at 6:45AM (arriving at the Main Gate at Englewood Metropark (4361 National Rd (US-40)) at 8AM-ish? Once we’re at the park I’m thinking of starting at the South Park Paddling put-in (955 Aullwood) and fishing until noon, then switching to the West Park Paddling Pu-in (100 Leinisch Rd) in the afternoon. Everyone should download the park mat at https://www.metroparks.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/metroparks-Englewood-map-07-2015.pdf.
Definitely a better plan. I’ll be there early since I’m in northern Hamilton county. I’ve fished the Stillwater further upstream for years, and it gets a lot of fishing pressure up there, but never in Englewood.
Please cancel my registration for this trip.
Kevin/Rita, Bill and Nathan … Can you each let me know if you plan to camp at Kendall or stay somewhere else (some folks don’t camp). Bruce L has has to back out so right now we are at five attending. I am still plan on taking my 10’wide x 20’long x 7tall two room tent and two cots (one to loan) if two other other of you plan on camping and don’t want to use your own smaller tent, you are welcome to stay in the other room, just bring your sleeping gear. Also, if someone else has a two-burner propane stove, please bring it to supplement my own two-burner for cooking meals. Also, I need to know if you all are planning on being there early enough on Friday to go to dinner with the rest of us at the Cumberland Resort Lodge Restaurant at 7PM Central time (kind of a tradition for these trips). I’m going to email this to each of you also so I can gather the rest of the details to put into the Trip Plan so I can send it out on Wednesday. Thanks.
I hate this, but Rita and me have to cancel for this trip. We’ve had an unplanned family issue that we need to deal with. I’m sorry for the late cancellation.
Include my name for the Oct 3 meeting, thx. Jack Steiber
I did the Intro To Flyfishing tonight for six people. They all adapted very well to the casting. We may have a few more folks at the fishing event Friday at Endgland-Idlewild park (Shelter #1 parking lot) at 6:30PM. I’ll have eight fly outfits rigged up with small poppers or nymphs and strike indicators and I’ll bring the other eight outfits as backup. If anyone can help out for a hour or so, it would be appreciated.
I bought two tickets the name on the tickets Dave Stamm and Nancy Stamm thanks
I will be there at the 5th Dist meeting
as of now I will be missing this grand event.
for those who plan to attend this is a super great event.
We have four rooms with two XL Double Beds each at the Relax Inn, 40 Highway 19 South, Bryson City, NC, 28713 booked for arriving Friday, Nov 22, 2019 and departing Tuesday, Nov 26. Currently we have seven members signed up with one (John Branam) Arriving Thursday, Nov 21. John has made his own arrangement for Thursday night and will bunk in with Mike Arnold on Friday & Saturday, leaving on Sunday, Nov 24.
If you know of someone who can come down on Sunday and leave Tuesday, put them in contact with Mike Arnold. Mike is working on the Trip plan, so he needs to know if everyone is driving separately, or if any of you plan to carpool down. He also would like to know the following information … what vehicle will you be driving and license plate #, Cell Phone # and what time do you plan on arriving on Friday and, if appropriate, where do you plan on fishing on the way down. Such as Mike Arnold plans on leaving around 5AM on Friday and driving straight to the West Fork of the Pigeon River just outside of Waynesville, NC. After fishing until 2PM Mike will then drive to the motel in Bryson City. John plans to arrive early enough on Thursday to fish the Upper Nantahala for a few hours in the late afternoon. REMEMBER – it’s pretty close to totally dark by 6PM. Make you plans accordingly.
As it turns out NKFF’s Fall NC Trout trip is planned for this same weekend so I will not be making it after all. But the plan I listed is a good one if you can get off on Friday. This is a really fun weekend with Derby City Fly Fishers and NKFF members and a worthy cause. If you cannot attend, consider making a donation of the $40 entrance fee. A complete description of the event is at https://derbycityflyfishers.com/mystery-fly-tournament/tournament-purpose-and-description/ and you can sign up for the event (or just make a donation) by following the links at https://derbycityflyfishers.com/mystery-fly-tournament/tournament-registration-and-lodging/
I’ll be there to watch. take pictures and socialize.
This is a very cool event. Lots of fun and extremely valuable and enlightening.
Hope to see lots of NKFF members at the show.
This is Joan. I will be there. Login not working, so I used Dave’s. : D Same will apply to the rod building.
If you have a new line & backing that you want spooled bring your reel, line & backing to this event and we’ll get you fixed up.
Can’t find the Let’s Go Fishing blog
Is a microwave available at the club and is beer allowed?
I will bring Potato salad from Cramers.
I’ll bring veggie tray
BE there Sat morning.
I just looked at my schedule and I see that I will not be able to come out Saturday but will be on the water too
Won trip at fall banquet
If you like to fly fish for bass, then this program is for you.
Have long been a fan, and really like & agree with the Eagle Claw assessment. I still have 2 spinning rods & a fly rod with the infamous ‘Parabolic’ action!
If you are not interested in the Guided day please let me know with a comment on your sign-up or an email via the link in the body of this trip page. I realize that $150 deposit is $1.15 over the full stay at the Inn. I’ll refund anyone that doesn’t stay the full time or the $1.15 when there.
No guide for me
Jack … Not sure if I want to do the guide. Depends on whether Geezer and KS will let me hang with them (and on my $$ situation at the time).
Mike if your going to hang out with the Geezer and KS, your going to need two extra rods , a center pin float rod and a spinning rod to keep up with our catches, I’ll loan you a float rod and make you a convert
Thanks Wayne for hosting this
Due to the corona virus, I am going to CANCEL my attendance to this event.
To anyone considering the Stanfield lake float trip on the 21st, looking at the forecast weather, it looks like it’s going to be to cold to float fish . I am therefore canceling this trip
Thanks for the update.
What is the physical address to send donations?
Kerry, thanks for your leadership, guidance, expertise and bubbly personality. Your love of fly fishing is infectious! Keep it up!
You can send a donation to:
Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers
PO Box 17541
Lakeside Park, KY 41017
Nice Job Super Randy
a fly that is simple and effective.
Recommend and extra blanket, nights can get really cold
also an air mattress, is a plus.
Jack have you put together the list of how is still going
Looking forward to it.
I click on the link to get to the web conference and I am directed to the page where I register for the meeting. Hmmm. I’m already registered. How can I get to the place where I enter the password NKFF so I can join the web conference?
I had a link sent to inbox. I went to it to download the extension and nothing happened. Which is good, because I did not want to install Cisco on my laptop. This is the third that I wanted to see and will have to miss it.
I am have the same issue as Eric
I am also having trouble. And there should be a way to view this on a smart TV. I do not like to add Cisco to my computer.
Sigh. Oh well, it’s just a meeting. Can’t fish if you’re in a meeting : ). There’s a pond 10 minutes from my house. When I practice my roll cast I usually catch something so I’ll head out there and try my luck. Maybe I’ll be able to log in next month. If anyone has any tips on how to get into the next web meeting let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m a new member and look forward to meeting some club members and fishing with them. Give me a call if you’d like to go fishing 937-763-4210 or send me an email.
Please join us……
Please tell me that these meeting will help us get back some level of routine. I miss all you people a lot, and I miss fishing a lot as well. Looking forward to the virtual meeting. Are we doing a zoom session for this? Thanks for your time.
I have looked at our website and cannot find any fly recommendations for Brookville tailwaters. Am I missing it? We could have a forum where we post where we are catching fish currently and what flys are effective for the different waters we are all visiting.
Stan, we do have a members only forum on the website. We promoted it for months but nobody uses it. The big idea behind the forum was for people to share the info that you’re talking about, but we can’t make people participate.
I got skunked today at Brookville fishing cream and black mops, black zebra midges and yarn bugs. Saturday they were hitting cream colored mop flies.
Thank you for making meeting registration so easy.
Randy Arrowood deserves all the credit😎
How do I pay dues
Hi everyone. I’ll be the organizer for fishing Brookville Tailwater’s on Saturday. I’ll continue watching the water level and let you know if the level will be safe to fish. Currently the water level is 3.92’ (safe to fish up to 4.3’) and the water temperature is 39.5 degrees F. If you plan on coming, make sure you dress in layers. Hope to see you there. Best regards, Joe Cruse
can someone send me a link to pay my membership
Was hoping air temperature would be closer to 40. I will not be there unless weather improves.
This first session will not be limited to 15. Any and all should register if you want to help steer the future meeting content. Thank you!
How do I get access to maps of local waters?
What pattern will you be presenting?
Less than 30 days to this trip. Looking forward to fishing with everyone
Didn’t see a regristration button
Zoom link won’t open; says “host has another meeting in progress.
Please include my brother Scott VanDyke. payment balance was made as a donation. Talk to Ken Johnson for clarification. thanks
It’s going to be cold (high of 44) so dress warm.
I may not last long in the cold!
Hey, all. I’m planning 1morning/day, to fish the wild trout streams noted on the WNC Trout Trail as #2. There are 4 or more streams closely located outside of Cullowhee, south of the Blue Ridge Pkwy.
If anyone wants to do the same, let’s go together!
No responses yet, but I’ll be in Newport, TN, in the 9th. Does anybody want to fish alongside me? I’m focusing on ‘boundary waters’ where a NC license is accepted. One price, searching out wild trout streams! No takers?
Hello! This location is a private pond so you have to sign up to get the details on where we will meet. Thank you!
Rather than have a bunch of us get together and have to wear masks and stay 6′ apart, we will meet at a predetermined location with all of the bagged Zebco Outfits. There are usually eight (8) outfits setup and in the 8 pockets in each bag. Depending on how many people signup each person will be given X number of bags to take home and setup (if needed put on a hook, sinker and bobber) and test cast each outfit. Some of them have not been used since we did this the last time, so those would just be re-inserted into a bag and set to the side to be returned to us/our storage shed art a later date. Any rod without a reel or ones needing rod or reel repairs would also be set aside to return to us for fixing. Any outfit that doesn’t cast well, needs to be re-lined with 10# monofilament line (20 yards – 60 feet — 300 yard spools of line will be provided to each volunteer). When each volunteers rods are through the process, we will arrange for pickup and return to the NKFF Storage Shed. Questions about the process should be directed to Mike Arnold at email@example.com.
I was informed by another member that I won a drawing, but I have not heard back from anyone,
just let me know what I won and where to pick up the winnings!
does anyone know what flies to use, as I have never river fished that area before,
Thanks for any help or suggestions
I am tentative on this trip…big if due to work.
Josh said to meet at the Markland Dam Park parking lot on the Indiana side of the dam. He also says…..” I recommend streamer patterns on full sink or sink tip. Ill probably not make it by 4pm, so just walk down the steps and work down river, the beach area is best. I also bring a spinning rod to find the fish & then switch to a fly rod.”
I suppose thunderstorms will postpone the trip, but a little rain never hurt anyone………
I’m going to cancel this time, since the weather is looking iffy, and it’s a fairly long drive for me. I’ll still be interested if you reschedule.
According to the radar, it looks like the skys will clear come fishing time. Anyone closer to the river than Lexington have any input on the amount of rain they got or if it will have any negative affect on fishing. Ive never fished the Ohio River and am not clear how it reacts to recent rainfall.
I am going to have to cancel out of the trip
Ron, Sorry to hear you can’t make the event, maybe next year. Joe
I will have to back out as well.
I am unable to go during work hours…tight lines to you who go.
I have to cancel family stuff to do.
Where will we actually be fishing ?
I am in the process of developing a signup form online that will let you all tell me your available dates/times from a list of about 15 sessions. It should only take us three sessions to finish the net frames, but I can’t say when they will be until I know your available times. That signup form should be available soon. Hopefully by tomorrow.
Is there a method in which we can register?
Bringing my kayak
I’ll plan to bring my raft.
Hey everyone – Looking forward to a little panfishing this Thursday evening. I probally will not arrive until 5:30/6 & will fish until Dark. After we get done fishing we can grab some dinner at Noble’s truckstop and diner by the expressway.
I will meet you at John Bryan Park between 9-9:30. Thanks!
Since I’ll be driving up on my own please let me know where I can meet the group and at what time. The above message from Markcbar says meet at John Bryan between 9-9:30. I assume it’s John Bryan State park. Where exactly? at the campground general store right at the main park entrance? Somewhere else? Also, in case I can’t make it could someone give me their name and phone number so I can call to let you know? Thanks :). My phone number is 937-763-4210
Sorry guys. Due to a scheduling conflict I will not be able to attend
Unfortunately I will be late for dinner as the Orvis store doesn’t close until 6:15 that evening. See y’all after that!
I would like to add my wife Betty to the meeting registrant list, with dinner.
Thanks, Dave DeVita
I have to cancel my spot on this trip.
I’m stoked about this project. I just pray for the chance to be there, sharing these people’s joy.
Can you tell me a bit more about what I can expect?
Probably be there around 6 ish
I’m 90% sure that I will attend as long as nothing involving works gets in the way
Joel will attend (not Kristin)
The creek is up quite a bit and really muddy, so no Bug IDing tonight. We’ll setup another date soon.
Sending out info request to all of the signups before I start making reservations etc.
What info do you need? I’ve just registered for myself, but, if she’s willing, I’d like to know if I can add her with at a later date. She’s in hospital right now, so I don’t know how she’ll be after discharge.
I’m still in, though. I can even bring my trailer and stay at a nearby park.
I’m checking water level today (friday) and will post my findings later.
Tight lines, Dave
11:20 am Friday
The waterlevel is up. I’d say about 8-10 inches. Water is slightly stained. If we get more rain, tomorrow might be a challenge. I’m not saying it’s washed out, but we’ll do some walking around the deep stuff.
Hi everyone this is Joe Cruse. I drove by Tanners Creek last night and the level is good. Hope to see everyone sometime tomorrow. Tight lines.
I should be able to make the meeting depending on work travel
Site does not have pay at the door option.
It does Dave, it’s the second ticket option.
MikecArnold and I are going to come down on Friday if there’s room to stay at traces. If not we will find some place close.
Jim Klingenberg and I are coming down on Friday. We’ll stay at traces unless you fill the last two spots for 5 days, then we’ll stay nearby but would like to participate with you all in the meals, floats, fishing, etc.
Understood. Sounds good coming down on Friday.
I will be providing a link to the actual signup form shortly.
I would like to take rod building class for sure
I saw that registration is closed. Is it still okay to come?
Susan Brown from BCCD has indicated that our volunteers should be there at 9AM and will be transported down the road to the KIVA next to Gunpowder Creek at 9:15. We will need both bags of NKFF Fly Fishing Outfits (8 in each & 16 in all). Fishing Guides (NKFF volunteers) should bring their fishing licenses and fly-fishing gear for warm water species. Most of the fishing will be from shore but wear wading boots. Please bring you own lunch and snacks. Call Mike Arnold at 859-240-5839 for more info.
Just checked the creek at Camp Ernst Road … up maybe a few inches and a little cloudy … if we get no more heavy rain, we should be okay to fish … there’s a 50% chance of rain most of the morning/afternoon but I don’t consider that an event stopper. See you all there!
Wonderful package and a chance to support a great cause!
I will not be able to attend
Thanks to all involved for making a decision about coming to the meeting with a no meal option for $5. It shows compassion and concern for other people and there were other reasons thank you so much
My husband Roy Bowlin and I just joined and saw that he is going to be at the camp buffalo bill the week of your fishing trip hope he will get to meet some of the other members while he is there.
I’ll check the weather forecast as we get closer. Depending on numbers registered, we could do the knot-tying in my garage (A/C’d) if the weather got sour on the 28th.
This is Mardy
I am so sorry but have to cancel today’s class.
I apologize for the inconvenience!
Mardy … Thank you for the heads up. I don’t have an email for you so I could not have sent you a map to my place anyhow.
The registration is for Dan Van Meter. It wouldn’t let me change the name from Ellen Smith to Dan van Meter.
Dan … Are you looking for Knot-tying or fly-casting or both?
Ellen … Was Dan looking for more casting or the knot-tying. We can do the knot tying at my place … I’ll send a map.
Would love to go this year but I have other family obligations and can’t make it. Have a good time.
The 2nd Rod-Building Class of 2021 (September & October) will be a BAMBOO ROD REFURB/REBUILD class. Prior to the first WORKING session we will determine what days/dates/times are available to each of the students & instructors to produce the class schedule. This class will be limited to six students because we are probably going to be stuck using Mike Arnold’s garage for the working sessions. All students MUST be able to make all the class sessions that are finally decided upon for the schedule. All must have been COVID vaccinated. Please fill out the session attendance form at https://forms.gle/sbTfVqdYASC7B6Ht5 ASAP
Hi, this is Joe Cruse, my wife won’t be able to join me this time so, I would like to bring my kayak out early and fish AJ Jolly’s lake before the banquet.
All … The forecast is for 92 + high humidity. Let’s do this at my house in the A/C’d garage, I’ll email each of you a map.
I have cancelled out of this trip.
Looking forward to getting the experience
What a wonderful day you are planning. And I’m so sorry to say I will miss this as I will be out of town on the 25th. – Rose Burnham
Any spots still available?
Yes, go ahead and register.
Sorry folks but Buckhorn Guide Service is no longer in business … they have not responded to my emails and the phone number has been disconnected. So this trip is CANCELLED.
Isn’t there another guide service in the area? What about just going down and fishing as our own Groupon? I’m always open to learning more from other members, even if we don’t catch a bunch of fish

Please advise. I can’t figure out how to pay for this by CC on the site.
Any spots open for the trip
At this time the trip is full.
