*** Picnic Cancelled ***
August 25th 2021
The Almanor Fishing Association held a board meeting last night via ZOOM. We unanimously agreed that it was in the best interests of the Lake Almanor Community to cancel our 2021 annual picnic.
The trust of our members, volunteers and partners will always be our top priority; to that end AFA will make every effort to contact everyone that has purchased a dinner ticket to offer you a refund. We have heard from numerous people that are electing to donate their ticket money to AFA and we appreciate your generosity. If you have purchased a ticket(s) and would like a refund please contact AFA via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org or mail your ticket to AFA P.O. Box 1938, Chester, CA 96020 and we will mail you a check.
We have once again postponed our raffle drawing; a date, time and place for the raffle has yet to be determined. Tickets are still available online @ almanorfishingassociation.org until we run or of tickets or until the drawing .We will be adding a couple of items to the raffle so everyone has better odds of possessing a winning ticket.
The past two years have been life changing for many of us. The AFA board wants to insure our supporters that we remain committed to the Lake Almanor Community and Almanor's world class fishery. We are confident fishing will play a pivotal role in the healing process of our community. Today we will be ordering $12,000 of fish food to feed the 50,000 fertile Eagle Lake Rainbows that we will be receiving in late October. While we don’t want to minimize the devastating impacts of the Dixie Fire and COVID, the Almanor Fishing Association fish pen program will remain the “longest running most successful fish pen program” in the state.
