Let's Go Fishing!!

2015 Mark Miller
Mark Miller
Brookies Galore Group
October 2012 saw Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ first of three initial fly fishing day-trips. These trips are for everybody old and new with the chapter...beginners or experienced anglers...and members’ guests are also welcome. Each trip will have a designated coordinator to provide destination information, equipment, fly and tactics suggestions and both car pool coordination and maps/driving directions. There will also be a trip host familiar enough with the location to assist with personal information needs and some basic fishing lore.

In our member survey last fall, RMNP got the most member interest so we also plan to schedule some hike-in trips to lakes in RMNP. This will be some exciting sight fishing to rising cutthroats with dry flies. We hope you will join us for all the fun! We have included some overnight trips to more distant locations as well. All trip participants will be required to have a signed TU/RMF liability waiver and parent/guardian authorization for any minor age anglers. Trip information will be introduced in The Flypaper newsletter and a schedule with details will be published on this page.

Members are invited to “host” a trip to some interesting spot. Hosting is not guiding, but rather just sharing your knowledge and the pleasure of your company as a fishing companion. New trips as they are confirmed will be announced in each Flypaper issue. Also, bookmark this webpage for “real time” trip information and other details such as photos, trip stories, etc.

Contact Outdoor Coordinator Mark Miller with your name, phone number and email address to sign up—or to ask about any trip.

If you would like to add any these fishing events to your digital calendar, click on the calicon icon below. This will download a small ICS file named RMF-fishing-date.ics which you can add to your digital calendar. This is for your own reference only. It will not sign you up for any of the trips, nor will it send any message to the host of the trip.

Monthly trips for 2020 will be scheduled late March through early November.
