Steve Day will be our December Speaker. He is native to the Mid-Sierra and has access to the 300,000 Acre Golden Trout Wilderness Region. He spent his early childhood and young adult life learning how to hunt and fish. He took his first pack trip into the Golden Trout Wilderness to Summit Lake in 1990, fresh out of high school. From that trip on, he knew he wanted to run a pack station. Steve now manages the 100 year-old Golden Trout Pack Station; May-October and continues to run his cattle operation in the off season.
Check out website for travel details, costs and selection of the different trips to different rivers for fishing. GoldenTroutPackStation.com (GPTS). There are a number of trips with different fishing destinations, full service pack trips, half and day rides, and more. Makes you want to go fishing once you see the photography, which is very impressive!! It is 4-5 hours or more by Horseback out to various campsites from the 100 plus year-old Pack Station to the fishing. The closest City is Porterville and the Golden Trout Pack Station is 1-1.5 hours from Porterville on Highway 190. The 300,000 plus acres of the Golden Trout Wilderness, includes the designated "Wild and Scenic" North and South Fork of the Kern River with exclusive access to 20 miles of the Upper Kern River, fishing for Rainbows and Volcano Creek Golden Trout.
Little Kern Golden, Volcano Creek Golden and Kern River Rainbow. He incorporates years of knowledge and experience on best areas in the fishery, water conditions, flies, gear and much more. He will also cover what to expect on a pack trip, and different trips offered, all of which is set forth in the website and holds a Q & A at the end for any questions.
