2018 RMF Fly Fishing Day Camp

Youth Camp Fishing at Rocky Mountain National Park
Youth Camp Fishing at Rocky Mountain National Park in 2013

July 30 through August 4, 2018

Beginning early in March, applications will be accepted for the Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ Youth Fly Fishing and Conservation Day Camp which begins July 30 and runs through August 4. Application/Schedule and Parents’ Information packet is available for download. No previous fly fishing experience is required. Applications are evaluated considering a one page description the applicant provides of his/her experiences, natural outdoors interests and reasons for applying for the 2018 camp.
 
The Day Camp program is designed for 15 campers (ages 14-17) and we expect that all openings will again be filled. The daily schedule is from 8:00 am to 6:00/7:00 pm. All equipment, transportation between activity venues, and drinking water will be provided. Campers will bring lunches, rain gear, and appropriate clothing. Daily drop-off/pick-up locations for parents are included with the pre-announced daily camp schedule.
 
The Day Camp is a fast paced six days of instruction, participation, and great fun. 2018posterthumb

We’ll learn how to fly fish, and also about responsibility for the watersheds, riparian habitat, river ecology, and the trout. Other topics include fly fishing equipment, knots, regulations, water safety, local and regional conservation issues, invasive species, entomology, trout anatomy and behavior, and casting and line control.

Time on the water includes learning to read the water, electro-stunning and identifying fish, chasing finicky hungry trout on the Poudre River and in Rocky Mountain National Park, and a hands-on conservation project, as well as casting to eager bass on still-water ponds. Other days we’ll be catching aquatic insects and learning how to tie flies that imitate them to fool more fish, and also snorkeling to observe underwater habitat and behaviors. We look forward to having more great campers again, just as in past years.

Random comments from campers and parents

The trout anatomy presentation helped campers(2) understand more about the trout themselves and think about how to improve fishing tactics. Fishing at the Swift Ponds and Arapaho Bend ponds with a mentor gave camper more experience with still-water techniques.
