Chopaka Lake Outing – May 24 -27 (Memorial Day Weekend)

When should you go to Chopaka?  As often as you can.  How long should you stay?  As long as you can.  Chopaka is a fly-fishing only lake in a beautiful setting at 2900 feet elevation.  It will produce plenty of 16”-18” rainbows and some north of 20”.  Bring lots of Callibaetis emergers and duns for dry fly fishing, damsel adults in blue, tan, and light green, wiggly damsel nymphs and Callibaetis nymphs, chironomids (in all the colors and sizes), buggers, and caddis.  Actually, bring all your flies!  Sometimes it seems like the hatches change by the minute.

Traditionally, the Club has made the trip to Chopaka, near Loomis, Washington, over Memorial Day Weekend.  We will be returning that weekend this year, with an abbreviated agenda.  The Club will provide beverages, but please bring your own food and plenty of firewood for the communal campfires.  There is a well at the DNR campground, but most bring their own water. (It’s a remote location, so bring everything you need with you.)   It’s a popular weekend so plan to get to Chopaka as early in the week as you can.  The outing will start officially on Friday, but Club President Danferd Henke and likely others will arrive the Sunday before.  There is a good DNR campground with improved sites and, next door, a BLM campground with unimproved sites.  We’ll double up on campsites if we need to.

It’s a lovely place.  Come if you can.
