PostSubject: Killie Club Collecting Trip   Mon Jun 23, 2014 10:45 am

Hi all.  I thought I'd stop by and invite you folks to the collecting trip of the Chesapeake Area Killifish Club this Saturday., considering that it's in your general vicinity.    Here are the details that I posted on the PVAS site earlier.  As you might expect, the trip is dependent on the weather.  The week ahead looks dryer than it has been, so we're hopeful.  (I'm also investigating a backup site, in case the water is too high on the Rappahannock.)

From Club President Cris Diaz:

CAKC Members are eager to get out and explore the VA waterways.

The June Meeting (Saturday 28 June 2014, at 1PM) will be a collecting and exploration trip to the Rappahannock River around the Kellys Ford Rd Bridge. Ample parking is available. Here is the link for travel from I-66 in Gainesville VA to the site (This is a 1 hour drive from Gainesville):

If you plan to make it, please let Cris know via email (diazcva@aol.com with the subject Trip), and also let him know if you can take others. Current plan - to be finalized – is to do car pools from Haymarket/Gainesville area out to the site.

What to plan for and bring, as we know from our trip a few years ago there are few things to keep in mind.
1. Trip will depend on weather and water conditions – we’ll send an update on Thursday night Friday morning and make a go no go decision.
2. Have proper equipment sun screen/bug spray/waders/shoes/towels, container/fish box, etc
3. Must have VA fish license to get on a net or take fish. Purchase and print on- line – http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/fishing/re ... censes.asp
4. If you are looking for fish, but do not want to get a license, let someone – who has a license know - and you can still participate, get in the water, and have fun.  Just DO NOT get on the net or take the bucket with fish!!!
5. Suggest doing some research on what may be available around these tributaries.
6. Cris will bring some nets and a seine that we can use, but feel free to bring yours.
7. This is also a good location to collect sand/gravel for your fish tanks – Just ask Jim Long. Plan for how much you want and how you will take it home. Most likely will be wet/heavy/leak in the car and it required work to get it out of the river. Proper size/cover and number of buckets are highly recommended.

Please RSVP (diazcva@aol.com) .



You never know what you're going to find, or where you're going to find it.
