Breakfast Meetings

Rooster Tail Fishing Club Members, their guests, and non-members are welcome to attend monthly breakfast meetings held the third Friday of each month except for December’s Member’s Awards Luncheon.  Persons 18 years old or older, couples, and retirees interested in fishing and fishing related issues may attend club breakfast meetings.  Reservations are not required to attend.  Typically 70 to 90+ individuals attend the club’s breakfast meetings held at the Auburn Elk’s Lodge, 195 Pine Street at Lincoln Way, Auburn, CA 95603.  Enjoy free fresh coffee and talk to fellow anglers, make fishing-outing arrangements, and hear where the fish are biting by arriving at the Lodge at 7:00 a.m.  A wide selection twelve-dollar breakfast buffet is open at 8:00 a.m.  The fabulous buffet includes choice of egg dishes, breakfast meats, potatoes, fresh baked pastries, beverages, and seasonal fruit.  The Lodge dining room is set-up with comfortable open seating, linen covered tables, metal utensils with home-style cups, glasses, and plates for an enjoyable meal.

As part of the breakfast program, at 9:00 a.m., an expert guest speaker makes a half-hour fishing related presentation including time to answer questions from the attendees.  The Lodge is well illuminated with a state-of-arts audio/visual system with live streaming video onto a large flat-screen television to allow clear viewing throughout the room.

All attendees are welcome to participate in a fun raffle for cash prizes, tackle, wine and other items.  In the adjoining room, tables are set-up for free literature and frequently free fishing related samples.

The Rooster Tails are hoping you will join us for a fun third Friday breakfast meeting and even consider becoming a club member.

Meeting Guest Speakers...
