Welcome to the Jolly Hookers

The Jolly Hookers fishing club is a group of men who love to fish on a regular basis.  

We meet once a month for breakfast, with after-breakfast seminars on how to catch fish at the places where that month’s outings are to be held, and have outings scheduled throughout the year.  We fish mostly in lakes throughout Northern California.  

On our website we have information about many of the great fishing spots in Northern California - mostly lakes within a few hour radius - including tips we’ve gathered on how to fish them successfully.  Our “links” page gives you information on local guide services and some great and useful websites.  Please feel free to browse our site and consider joining us for a meeting or an outing.

Our Next Meeting

Our July meeting will be via Zoom.  Look for information about time, date, and login in your email.


AARP has a good article explaining all the ins and outs of  Zoom:  https://www.aarp.org/home-family/personal-technology/info-2020/how-touse-

Zoom.html


Due to the State’s current policy on meetings due to the Covid 19 virus, it is still uncertain when we will be able to meet in person again.  When we meet again, it will be at our regular meeting place, the Rancho Cordova Elks Lodge, 11440 Elks Circle, Rancho Cordova.

Fisherman of the Year - 2020

There are two types of fisherman - those who fish for sport and those who fish for fish.

In June we are going to try to have two fishing days so we can have some time to get together after fishing. There will be no official weigh-in or points. It’s just a way of getting together and seeing each other. Keep in mind of social distancing and you might bring a folding chair because we might not have the use of picnic tables.


Bring your own food and drinks. We will meet between noon and 1:00 in the boat parking area and where we might find some shade. The time might be a little earlier due to how hot it might get. So keep in touch on the radio.


The scheduled outings will be June 16 at Folsom Lake (Folsom Point launching area), and June 23 at Lake Berryessa (Markley Cove).

  

Point Standings for Fisherman of the Year through June:

1 (tie)– Rick Schrichfield, Virgil Loken, Bob Schmidt 15 points

4  Ben LaSala 11points

5 (tie Steve Eskildsen, Gene Pearson 8 points

7 (tie) – Jim Lloyd, Steve Milanovich, Steve Veffredo 7 points



Of Note:

The State of California has a website that records the daily levels of various reservoirs in the state. This is a great resource to see the levels of a lake or reservoir you may be going to.  Click here.

Permits Now Required for Derbies and NDOs

After a long meeting with a Department of Fish and Wildlife, we have concluded that we need to have permits to hold our Derbies and NDOs on California lakes and rivers  This will result in an additional cost to the Jolly Hookers but be worth it in the long run.
