About Napa Valley Fly Fishers

In 1969 the Napa Valley Fly Fishers was formed by a group of local fly fishers who were interested in promoting the art of angling with an artificial fly, passing on knowledge of this art to fellow anglers, and conserving and enhancing the quality of our California Fisheries.

We accomplish this by having regular scheduled activities such as:

• Public Outreach

• Youth Programs

• Group Fish Outings

• Conservation Efforts

• Monthly Guest Speakers

• Slide and film presentations

• Technical seminars


Other activities include classes in fly tying, rod building, streamside entomology, and outdoor photography.

The Napa Valley Fly Fishers (NVFF) have fish outings to destinations around Northern California, allowing our members to learn how to access and fish different areas. Club meetings often involve instruction on fly casting and fly tying. NVFF holds an annual fund raising dinner raising money to sponsor

Conservation projects with the Resource Conservation District (RCD), Putah Creek Trout, and Napa River Steelhead, among others, as well as funding youth programs, a Healing Waters program at the Yountville Veterans Home, and other activities directed to the promulgation of fly angling.

NVFF is a ‘Friend’ of the Friends of the Napa River, we support Casting for Recovery, we have a Relay for Life team, we clean up the Napa River on Coastal River Clean Up Day, and we host a cleanup party on Putah Creek each fall.

A newsletter is electronically sent monthly to each member describing the upcoming meeting program and listing fishing reports, tips, stories and other information.

The Napa Valley Fly Fishers meet at the Senior Center, 1500 Jefferson Street, Napa, on the second Thursday of every month.  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m.

      Guests are always welcome!
