Topic: “Lake Oroville Bass” Topwater & Streamers in the Spring & Summer.
All tactics and information covered can be applied smoothly to any bass waters in the state. Especially reservoirs such as Folsom, Berryessa, etc. Ryan will cover everything you need to know from flies, rigs, presentation, gear, structures to look for, timing, and everything in between. The goal of this presentation will be to able club members to get out and catch some bass on the fly independently, and likely close to home.
Ryan is a full time guide & owner of North Valley Fly Fishing. With 10 years of guiding experience, he now focuses on the Feather and Sac rivers for trout, steelhead, and stripers. Lake Oroville and Berryessa for Bass, and Clear Lake for both bass and crappie. Ryan is best known for his re-discovering of the Float n’ Fly with the fly rod, and it’s application for stillwater bass during the Winter. Ryan is also the first fly fishing guide to figure out Clear Lake. He’s also been a major proponent of top-water fly fishing on CA’s public reservoirs. Ryan is also the current Costa Bass n’ Fly Champion along with Brian Pultz.
Jan 2, 2021, Ryan Williams won the 178 boat Wild West Bass Trail team tournament on Lake Shasta. Ryan used his fly rod the entire time, using the Float n’ Fly technique. Making it the first major bass tournament victory for a fly rod in the US. Some of the best bass pros around attended this tournament.
Ryan now resides right next to Lake Oroville, allowing him to fish as much as he can possibly stand. He is about as passionate about fly fishing as they come, and truly enjoys sharing his information.
