The Hemingway Chapter of Trout Unlimited travels vicariously to Mexico next week to hear a report on tarpon fishing in the Campeche region of the Yucatan Peninsula.

At the organization’s monthly meeting on Thursday, Oct. 4, Chad Chorney, Trout Unlimited’s southern Idaho project manager, will talk about saltwater fly fishing for baby tarpon, some weighing up to 30 pounds.

With the closing of the Roosevelt Grille, the organization has been looking for a new locale for its monthly meetings and has now settled on Whiskey Jacques’ Restaurant & Nightclub on Main Street in Ketchum.

The meeting will be held from 5-7 p.m. The public is invited. Admission is free.

Trout Unlimited reported in a press release that the Campeche area is “perhaps the world’s best fisher for baby tarpon” and is “ideal for not only the beginning saltwater fly fisher but for the seasoned veteran as well.”

“Fishing in Campeche provides many opportunities to put your fly in front of tarpon; jumping 15 to 20 fish in a day and landing half that is not uncommon,” the press release states.

In his presentation, Chorney will discuss the region, the fishery, gear and techniques, outfitter possibilities, lodging and accommodations and travel information.
