Family Fly Fishing Camp

Please check back in late April for information on our 2015 camp.

On August 9-11, 2013 Colorado Trout Unlimited, with their partner Angling University, will be holding their inaugural Family Fly Fishing Camp at the Pickle Gulch Campground in Gilpin County, Colorado.

At this camp youth age 9-13, with a responsible adult (parent, mentor, etc), will have the opportunity to camp, fly fish, and experience Colorado’s beautiful mountain environment! This camp is designed to teach youth and adults basic fly fishing skills while encouraging them to embrace angling as a healthy, family-oriented activity. Fifteen youth campers, each accompanied by a family member, can participate with sign-up on a first come first served basis.

The cost to attend this camp is $175 for each youth/adult pair. Financial aid is available for those who may need it. Camp topics will include:

  • Equipment basics
  • Casting
  • Fly line and leader knots, fly selection
  • Trout habitat, reading the water, catch & release
  • River ecology and conservation
