Non-resident camp runs July 21-23 and July 28-30. Youth Outreach program for students to learn about resource conservation and about fly fishing. Application process begins February 1, 2011. For more information, see the Youth Outreach page.
Note of the Day:
The Isonychia genus of mayflies are big, meaty flies that in the nymph stage are strong swimmers, so strong that they can be mistaken for minnows. When fishing this Isonychia nymph imitation, unlike other nymphs, a fast retrieve will be more productive than a dead drift presentation. source unknown
