Welcome to the Diablo Valley Fly Fishing 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 at 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 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. For a little insight into our club, watch The DVFF's 50th Anniversary video.

Fishing Northern Sierra Waters 
with Jon Baiocchi

 

Speaker.2020.07.BaiocchiJon’s presentation will focus on Northern Sierra waters, including the North Fork of the Yuba River, the Middle Fork of the Feather River, and Lake Davis. Jon has been fly fishing and tying flies since 1972, and is a California licensed fly fishing guide, published author, educator, and innovative tier. Jon owns and operates Baiocchi’s Troutfitters guide service, from which he has guided for the last 20 years. Locations he guides include Frenchman’s Reservoir, The Big & Little Truckee Rivers, The Lower Yuba River, and many secluded creeks in Eastern Plumas County, as well as the North Fork of the Yuba, Lake Davis, and the wild and scenic Middle Fork Feather River,

Born in San Jose, Calif., in 1965, his Dad moved the entire family to Paradise, Calif., during 1967 to be closer to prime fly fishing venues and to raise his family in the spectacular Northern California forests. Jon’s Dad, Bob Baiocchi, was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Hall of Fame during 1999 and was a major influence in helping Jon hone his fly fishing skills at a very young age.

After finishing high school, Jon opted out of college to pursue a career as a professional snowboarder, competing at a national level, starring in feature movies, and working with manufacturers in research and development. After his career ended in 1993, Jon focused entirely on fly fishing and conservation, and learning even more of the intricate details of his home waters. Jon serves on the Truckee Trout Unlimited Board of Directors and volunteers his time with the South Yuba River Citizens League.
