Jim McCombs fishing Hot Creek, Sept. 2008

Welcome to the Diablo Valley Fly Fishermen club website. We are a group of men and women who share a common interest in the sport of fly fishing. The members of the DVFF help each other develop their skills and knowledge in the pursuit of this fascinating sport.

The DVFF serves its members through club activities and resources including a novice seminar, a Youth Fly Fishing program, skills seminars, fishing outings, guest speakers at regular meetings, an online forum, a DVD lending library, Facebook page, and an annual auction.

The club sponsors a scholarship for research in Fisheries Biology and/or Riparian or Limnetic Ecology by a student of the UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Center of Aquatic Biology and Aquaculture. The DVFF also supports a large Trout In the Classroom program and sponsors the local Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing-Martinez, CA program.

Anyone interested in fly fishing is eligible and welcome to become a member of the DVFF.

Fly Fishing the Frying Pan, 
Roaring Fork and Colorado Rivers,
with Cameron Cipponeri

Cameron’s program will cover all aspects of fishing the frying pan roaring Fork and Colorado River. A guide who’s on the water more than 200 days a year, Cameron will offer his insight into the seasons, hatches, and access points.Cameron started fishing at the age of 10 in Northern Michigan. After attending Oakland Community College, he worked at Bass Pro Shops in its fly fishing department, teaching fly fishing techniques and fly tying.

After moving to Colorado over 13 years ago, Cameron has worked at Frying Pan Anglers, where he has found his home. He loves all waters, from small streams to the big waters of the Colorado River, and connects with clients through a great sense of humor. Guided floats and wading trips are just two of the types of outings Cameron guides. He also hosts guide schools, fishing camps, and kid’s clinics, just to name a few of the adventures coordinated by Cameron. He has been married for 14 years to Kelly and has a great little girl, Addison, who accompanies him on fishing trips on his days off.
