Rocky Mountain Flycasters and Trout Unlimited
2017 Youth Conservation and Fly Fishing Day CampOur 8th annual Fly Fishing and Conservation Day Camp Application Packet is now available. This six day, popular and fast-paced event features everything from fly fishing skills to fly tying, from river ecology to insects & entomology, from casting to catching beautiful wild trout. The camp will welcome fifteen boys and girls ages 14 through 17 and takes place in the Fort Collins/Loveland area. See more information on our 2017 Camp page that also includes photographs and highlights from previous day camps.
Fishing trips start to shape up
The 2017 open water fishing season is starting up. RMF Fishing Coordinator Mark Miller is putting together hosted trips in Colorado and beyond.
Hosting entails some familiarity with an area, getting people there at the same time, and having a good time. No guiding is necessary. See our Fun Fishing page for a list of planned trips. Want some company on a fishing trip? Host a trip. It’s easy. Contact Mark Miller.
Children’s Water Festivals ScheduledThe Water Fests are a great time to encourage elementary students to begin considering our cold, clean, clear streams and the interaction between insects, fish, and predators. Help these youngsters with “Who Eats Who at the Stream.” See more on the Water Festival page.
