Working to protect and improve the wild trout fishery in Putah Creek
City you live in now
Year you joined PCT board
2016, member since 2012ish.
Occupation/ place of employment
Finance, UCDavis Athletics
Grew up in Winters in the 80’s, that was an experience. I’ve actually skated the Glory Hole (statute of limitations for prosecution has surely run out). Now I just pull streamers near the spillway.
Position/ special interest/ emphasis on the board
Challenges to the trout
Ignorant people, most people respect the wild trout designation if they are aware. I think a majority of folks “poaching” simply don’t know it’s catch and release barbless fishing.
Success story (how you were involved in doing something that benefitted the PC)
That sweet feeling of getting something accomplished whether its picking up a beer can or augmenting spawning grounds.
Tell a short story (first time you fished IDR PC, special day on the PC, volunteer event, funny anecdote)
I can’t remember the first time I fished Putah, it’s been awhile, but I do remember the first time I left my spinning rod at home and committed to the fly rod with confidence. It’s gone from a hobby to a lifestyle since then.
