Vermont Trout Unlimited Celebrates 10th Anniversary of Fly Fishing Summer Camp for Teens

24 February 2020

Vermont Trout Unlimited announces the tenth anniversary of their fly fishing camp for Vermont teens ages 13 to 16.  Teens interested in either learning the art of fly-fishing or improving their basic skill level along side some of Vermont’s most accomplished fly anglers, are invited to apply.  The 2020 camp is scheduled for Sunday June 21st through Thursday June 25th at Jackson’s Lodge in Canaan, Vermont.

Louis Porter, Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife Commissioner supports TU’s educational efforts.  “TU’s Fly Fishing Camp for Teens is an incredible program dedicated to educating our next generation of fly fishermen and women to help ensure that our precious coldwater fisheries here in Vermont will be taken care of well into the future.”

Participants in the 5 day/4 night comprehensive program will learn and practice casting, basic fly tying, knot craft, insect identification and imitation (entomology), fish identification and behavior (ichthyology) safe wading techniques, angling ethics and coldwater conservation. Campers will hone their skills on local lakes, ponds and streams, including the Connecticut River.

Our host, Jackson’s Lodge, (www.JacksonsLodgeVT.net) is located in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom on Wallace Pond and is a short five-minute drive from the Connecticut River.

Prospective campers are encouraged to apply no later than April 15, 2020 to secure a spot for this year’s program.  The cost for the 5-day camp is $450.  Scholarships may be available on an “as-needed” basis.

Trout Unlimited is a non-profit organization that has dedicated over 50 years to the conservation, protection and restoration of North America’s cold-water fisheries and watersheds.
