Colorado Trout Unlimited is now accepting applications from students aged 14 to 18 for its sixth annual River Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp, June 12-17, 2011 at the High Lonesome Ranch near DeBeque, Colorado. The camp is designed to educate students on the importance of coldwater conservation and provide hands-on fly-fishing instruction. Students will also participate in a watershed project to repair habitat in a nearby stream. Camp classes include: principles of ecology, hydro-geology, aquatic vertebrate and invertebrate sampling, hydrology, trout behavior, trout stream entomology, the biology of pollution, acid deposition, and politics of conservation and human effects on the Rocky Mountains.
Like most TU chapters across Colorado, Boulder Flycasters will pay all the fees for one camper.
Applications must be received by April 15, 2011. Click here to download an application and read more about the camp. Click here to view the camp flyer.
