Non-members and the Public are Welcome

Whether you’re interested in guided trips, bargains on new gear, dinner with friends, or just supporting PCC’s conservation efforts,the Wounded Vets Program, and the Club's general operations, please join us Thursday, March 12th, for PCC’s Annual Fundraiser and Dinner.

The fundraiser is being held early enough to allow you adequate time to plan to use the trips and gear we’re offering this coming fishing season. Prior to the event, you will receive an email with details of the guide services and lodge opportunities offered so you can review your fly fishing calendar prior to the auction. With trips being auctioned that range from Southern California to the Bighorn and many other excellent locations (most are two-for-one offers), you have the chance for a trip of a lifetime, as long as you plan ahead with your fishing buddy or spouse. If you want to consider a list of the guided trips and lodge deals ahead of time, please send an e-mail request to

We need your support! Along with membership dues, this fundraiser is one of our two major sources of revenue helping to pay for our monthly speakers, our conservation efforts, our Wounded Vets Program, and everything else required to keep one of California’s oldest fishing clubs running smoothly.
Invest in 10 raffle tickets for $50 or 20 tickets for just $75 (an amazing deal) and get the chance to win one of many great prizes: The Grand Prize is an Orvis Recon Fly Rod (9’, 6 weight, 4 Piece) with a matching Access Mid-Arbor III Fly Reel (a perfect combo for trout fishing everywhere) loaded with an Access Weight Forward Fly Line, with a package value of $649.
