2023 Membership Drive
As the Almanor Fishing Association (AFA) begins our 2023 Membership Drive I want to thank you for your past membership. If you were not a member in 2022, please consider joining the AFA Family as we enter our thirty-eighth year of promoting, preserving, and enhancing the Lake Almanor fishery.
In 2022 through the generosity of our members and business sponsors AFA was able to host the fifth Veterans Fishing Day on Lake Almanor where more than a hundred Veterans were treated to a day of fishing and a barbecue lunch at Rec#1. In addition, for the second year in a row we provided every Plumas County fourth grader with a new fishing rod. We assisted Plumas County Fisheries Biologist Amber Mouser at youth fishing events at both Round Valley Reservoir and Lake Almanor. AFA volunteers also provided eight youth fishing clinics at Rec#1.
As we begin our annual membership drive AFA volunteers are two months into our 2022/23 fish pen season. Our fifty thousand fertile Eagle Lake Rainbows are growing quickly and will be ready for release in April. Our volunteer feeders deserve special recognition for their efforts and dedication to our program.
