Looking forward to seeing you there! 

We are fortunate to have Bill Forward return to share his “A Stillwater Overview” program from the California Stillwater School. Bill will touch upon these facets of Stillwater fly fishing: 

• Stillwater vs. moving 

• Aspects we control 

• What time has to do with it 

• Reading stillwater 

• Lake turnover 

• Basic flies 

• Depth 


With nearly seventy years of fishing experience in the Sierra, Bill Forward, former fly fishing guide and Sr. Editor of Sierra Fisherman Magazine, has written and published over two dozen fly fishing articles. Bill has presented numerous programs at the Fly Fishing Show in Pleasanton and Pasadena and been a featured speaker at Sacramento’s International Sportsman’s Expo. Bill guided fly fishing in the waters near Graeagle for 14 years, and, along with Phil Rowley, developed, co-hosted and taught in the California Stillwater School for seven years. 


Check out the Forum tab above read or share fly fishing stories and experiences.
