November 4th, 2023 WFFC Wet Buns Outing
November 4 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT| Free – $40.00
Penrose Point State Park 321 158th Avenue Kp S, Lakebay, WA
Our annual celebration of the drizzle season, once again, Finally! Normal Northwest weather! Chums are staging in the shallow estuaries, the resident Coho are there for those who know where to cast, and the biggest searuns are looking for that last meal before a long winter in a little stream.
Seafood stew, prepared by Pat Becker and liberally lubricated volunteer labor, that always tastes best around a big fire. This is the best “outing” meal of the year as far as many are concerned, and is a must do trip for me. So stay away if you don’t like shrimp, halibut, clams, cod, crab, or any of that other fishy food. Yes, there are some vegis in there too…
We will gather at the group camp area at Penrose Point state Park, with dinner prepping starting around 4:00. I know that cuts into some fishing time, but it gets dark early these days. We need several volunteers to crack crabs, chop fish, shell shrimp, etc.
Bring your favorite cold weather appetizer, and the club does the rest. This is truly a great outing.
The fishing can be done from beaches but is done better from a boat. Launches at Vaughn Bay, Allyn, Latimers landing, Treasure Island, and Von Geldern cove are all good jumping off spots for South Sound fly fishing.
Orange and white flies, along with olive clousers and dali lamas work really well. Chums like anything small and green.
Members, if you can take another member in your boat to fish at the Wet Buns outing, please acknowledge this in the “I will Assist With” sign-up, so that we can organize members to fish with you.
The outing is Free for WFFC Members and $40 fee for non-WFFC Members which can be applied towards the $80 2024 annual membership dues. You can also make a $10 donation to support the costs of the Seafood stew and beverage libations.
Sign up for head count and bring a sturdy bowl for dinner. See you there!
