Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation

Lower Kings River Cookout and Outing

January 20, 2024

Written by Leo Labbe, FFFC Board President

The Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation (FFFC) was organized in 1961 by a group of devoted fly fishers deeply concerned with the preservation of trout and all game fish, their environment, and the quality of fishing. Our club has maintained two goals since that time: 1) To foster and promote the sport of angling with artificial flies and 2) To protect, conserve, and increase our angling resources. One accomplishment of the FFFC was the institution of a catch and release zone below Cobbles Weir on the lower Kings River downstream to Highway 180. Only artificial lures with barbless hooks may be used and the trout bag limit is zero. The purpose of this fishing regulation is to promote recreational angling by making use of the trout and still conserve them. 

The FFFC members host multiple outings throughout the year at various locations. The FFFC 2024 Lower Kings River Cookout and Outing that took place on January 20th at Avocado Lake Park was a great success! We had a day full of great food, fun fellowship and (despite the crowds and rain) some great fishing. Below are some photos from the day. We look forward to doing it again next year.
