AUBURN, CA (MPG) - The Rooster Tails Fishing Club monthly breakfast will be held at the Auburn Elks Lodge at 195 Pine Street in Auburn on Friday, October 19th.  This free event is open to club members, spouses, and non-member guests.  Doors to the Lodge open at 7:00 a.m. to share fresh brewed coffee.  A fantastic $15 wide-selection buffet breakfast is served at 8:00 am followed at 9:00 am with special guest speaker, Big John Enos, owner of Big John’s Guide Service.  John will explain how to score quality salmon in his secret river holes and other hot spots on Central Valley Rivers.  Reservations are not required, but breakfast attendees are encouraged to arrive early for best parking and seminar seating.
John has 14 years of river salmon fishing experience, especially on the upper Sacramento River, and finds that sharing his non-traditional fishing secrets has made him in high demand.  Some angler’s have found many of John’s unorthodox, but legal, tackle modifications and fishing techniques a little different and maybe even strange, until they experience jarring explosion of monster salmon they catch.  Interested salmon fishermen and women anglers are encouraged to arrive early to meet John and to secure a good seat for his presentation. 

John owns a custom twenty-foot guide boat that comfortably accommodates four guests. Although John’s specialty is fishing for river salmon, he also does guided trips for land-locked salmon, sturgeon, steelhead, striped bass, shad, and bass.  He provides all species-specific tackle, including his custom lures, to make his guided fishing trips memorable.

 The 30 year old, 200+ members Rooster Tails Fishing Club of Northern California, Inc. is a non-profit organization that meets the third Friday of each month to educate, entertain, and enhance fishing experience.  Unlike many bass and fly fishing clubs that concentrate on very specific types of fishing, the Rooster Tails Fishing Club provides a balanced mix of fishing techniques presented by fishing experts targeting a variety of fish species on multiple types of waters.
