January Outing and One Fly Event

OPTU will host an outing at Sahuarita Lake on Saturday, January 14, starting at 9:00 a.m. If the weather forecast  is not favorable, Saturday, January 28 will be a backup date. Watch your e-mail during the week of January 8 for up-to-date information.

There will be an optional one-fly contest from 9:00 – noon. Anybody interested in participating should meet at or near the amphitheater at the south end of the lake to sign in and get a copy of the rules. Bragging rights and a prize will be awarded to the winner.

Everybody is invited to the event, especially young family members. OPTU will provide a few fly rods and reels for a novice or a family member that would like to try fly fishing, and a few Tenkara-style rods for anybody curious about that style of casting. Free fly casting instruction can be provided as needed.

Any angler 10 years or older must have a valid fishing license, either a community fishing license or a general fishing license. Check the Arizona Game and Fish Department web site for current fishing regulations and license prices.
