October Outing – Okanogan Lakes

October 6, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - October 10, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Mike Truax will host the October outing to lakes in Okanogan county October 6-10th. Start off on October 6 with a dinner at Koala Street Grill on Highway 97 next to the Best Western hotel at 6pm. Talk over what’s hot and what’s not and decide which lakes to fish at dinner. I’d suggest Buzzard Lake (off Hwy 20) or Rat Lake (North of Brewster off Hwy 97) on your way to Omak on Friday, depending on which way your coming.

For those of you who haven’t attended this outing before, there are numerous lakes in the area including, Omak, Fish, several Greens, Chopaka and many more. They all fish well in the fall. Stay in Omak at the Rodeway Inn on Main street (509 826 0400), Omak Inn on Hwy 97 (509 826 3822), or the Best Western Peppertree on Hwy 97 (509 422 2088).

The North 40 Fly Shop located North of Omak on hwy 97 is an excellent source of local information, gear and tribal permits if you need them.

Mike Truax is just back from the Okanogan September 28th and gives the following report: I just returned from a 1-week trip to Ferry and Okanogan. I fished Long Lake near Republic and Walker Lake (1/2 day) on my return. Then, I fished Blue Lake pond due to strong wind and wrapped up at Buzzard. Fish are very strong this fall.

Have fun!

Classes and Events


All of us at OFF share a passion for fly fishing and that passion has led many of us to explore other facets of the sport. Most of us tie flies and a few are good enough at it to teach others. Each year we conduct beginning tying classes in the local community. If you’re interested in attending a class, please find an event above.

If you join our club you’ll also have a chance to meet and learn from some of the finest rod builders in the area. Builders who work in both cane and graphite materials.

Guest speakers and club outings are another excellent way members improve their technical skills and enhance their understanding of the sport. (2016 Outing List .xlsx)
