Thank you to everyone who came today to fish and spot. We all enjoyed the gift of fishing and camaraderie. Over 50 anglers participated. And through our raffle we gave the Matilija Dam project $1,600 towards their worthy cause. There were many smiling faces as the raffle winners were announced. This would not have been possible without the hard work of Shane Chung, Eric Rangel, Gary Bulla and the OSF Team and Bill Matthews. Special thanks to our sponsors Abel Reels & Buffs, Kristina Kaufman for taking on the duties of official OSF photographer and Rick Olson from Olson Visual for making us a killer banner!
