Youth Outreach

Rocky Mountain Flycasters

Rocky Mountain Flycasters Chapter of Trout Unlimited (RMF) Youth Outreach programs provide outdoors experiences and classes to help youths become more aware of and connect with nature. Our programs introduce newcomers to fly fishing and help others to develop more advanced skills. This encourages them to better understand the need for coldwater conservation and about the Trout Unlimited mission “To conserve, protect, and restore Colorado’s watersheds and their trout fisheries.”

2018 Fly Fishing & Conservation Day Camp

2013cutfish Applications for the 2018 Day Camp are available. Detailed schedules and signup options for the July 30 - August 4 camp can be downloaded from our 2018 Day Camp page. We look forward to our 9th year of this exciting camp.
 
To get a bit of flavor of the camp, visit our picture gallery from the 2017 Day Camp and see the fun we had and topics we covered.

Water Fest Schedule

This will be RMF’s 7th year at local Water Festivals designed to create awareness and knowledge of water conservation for elementary school age youths. See more about how you can help.

CTU Awards
Dennis Cook with Outstanding Volunteer Award and Outstanding Youth Program Award

Flycasters receive awards!

At the 2011 Annual Colorado Trout Unlimited Rendezvous in Redstone, Colorado, our chapter received two awards. The Colorado Outstanding Volunteer award was presented to Dennis Cook, Youth Outreach Chair for his many hours of dedicated volunteer work. A second award was presented to and received by Dennis Cook for Exemplary Youth Education Program. Both awards are very well deserved, Dennis.

The Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ 2018 River Conservation & Fly Fishing Youth Day Camp runs July 30 through August 4 and can use adult mentors for many of the sessions. Be sure to encourage young people you know to apply for participation. See the Camp page to obtain more information and the signup information soon. See the Camp Volunteer page for mentoring opportunities. Last year’s camp was a great success and we are looking for even more fun this year.
