Silver Creek Preserve Opens 35th season

For anglers, it's always a special day: The fly fishing opener at Silver Creek, always the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.

This year it's extra special: It marks the start of a summer of celebration for the preserve's 35th anniversary.

We have a summer of activities planned, including a 35th anniversary gala with inspirational speakers, music, dancing, auction trips and more--set on the beautiful grounds of Heart Rock Ranch (formerly the Diamond Dragon Ranch). Mark your calendar for June 30 and sign up today!

First, though, is this weekend's opening day barbecue. Join us for food and stories at the visitor center from noon to 3 p.m. (or until the food runs out) on Saturday, May 28. And check out our complete summer schedule.

And how will the fishing be this year? It's always hard to know, but if last year is any indication, there should be some real monsters lurking in the depths. Maybe you'll be lucky and catch one like the one Conservancy staffer Mark Davidson caught (pictured below).

We hope to see you at the preserve this summer. We'll be saving a a place for you!
