Fall and Winter Fly Fishing the Eastern Sierra

The Aguabonita Flyfisher–  The featured speaker for the November 1st Aguabonita Flyfishers general meeting will be Luke Kinney, Golden Trout Guide Co. out of Bishop, CA.  Luke’s specialty is winter fishing in the Eastern Sierra.

“When I picked up a fly rod I knew that it is something special and life changing,” says Kinney, “There is a deep connection there.  I fell in love with every aspect of the lifestyle, from fly tying to obsessively checking weather patterns.  I couldn’t get enough, and I don’t think I ever will.  I started my own guiding outfit in 2021 with the mindset of offering the best and most professional guided experience on the Eastern Sierra.  

Being on the river is a privilege, and a responsibility.  As a guide I love getting folks into beautiful and memorable fish but I also enjoy sharing my passion for the Owens Valley originally named Payahuunadü or “Land of Flowing Water” by its native Piute people.  The journey of fly fishing is lifelong, and it only gets better.”  

The Aguabonita Flyfisher program begins at 7:30 PM Tuesday, Nov. 1 at the United Methodist Church (639 N Norma).  All fly fishers, want-to-be fly fishers, any kind of fisher, or just interested in fishing are welcome
