Youth Outreach

Rocky Mountain Flycasters

Rocky Mountain Flycasters Chapter of Trout Unlimited (RMF) Youth Outreach programs provide outdoors experiences and classes to help youths become more aware of and connect with nature. Our programs introduce newcomers to fly fishing and help others to develop more advanced skills. This encourages them to better understand the need for coldwater conservation and about the Trout Unlimited mission “To conserve, protect, and restore Colorado’s watersheds and their trout fisheries.”

2020 NoCo Youth Fly Fishing Day Camp

2013cutfish We look forward to our 11th year of this exciting camp running July 27 - August 1, 2020.
To get a bit of flavor of the camp, visit our picture gallery from the 2017 Day Camp and see the fun we had and topics we covered.
We anticipate having applications ready for the 2020 Camp available by March 2020.

Water Fest Schedule

This will be RMF’s 10th year at local Water Festivals designed to create awareness and knowledge of water conservation for elementary school age youths. See more about how you can help.
The 2020 schedule will be announced as soon as possible.

Trout in the Classroom

2013TICDannahower Students are raising trout! Trout roe arrive for students to hatch, raise through alevins, and up to a point where they can be released into the wild. See how they do it.

CSU Environmental Learning Center

The Flycasters has partnered with Colorado State University at the Environmental Learning Center on the Poudre River to introduce cold water conservation concepts to elementary and middle school participants. Topics include aquatic insects, fly tying, and survival skills.


RMF works with local scouts in earning a Fly Fishing Merit Badge.

Volunteer with Youth Outreach

There are many ways to help with youth, from one-on-one instruction, group instruction, to helping chair one of the programs. See our Youth Volunteer page for opportunities.

CTU Awards
Dennis Cook with Outstanding Volunteer Award and Outstanding Youth Program Award

Flycasters receive awards!

At the 2011 Annual Colorado Trout Unlimited Rendezvous in Redstone, Colorado, our chapter received two awards. The Colorado Outstanding Volunteer award was presented to Dennis Cook, Youth Outreach Chair for his many hours of dedicated volunteer work. A second award was presented to and received by Dennis Cook for Exemplary Youth Education Program. Both awards are very well deserved, Dennis.

The Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ 2018 River Conservation & Fly Fishing Youth Day Camp runs July 30 through August 4 and can use adult mentors for many of the sessions. Be sure to encourage young people you know to apply for participation. See the Camp page to obtain more information and the signup information soon. See the Camp Volunteer page for mentoring opportunities. Last year’s camp was a great success and we are looking for even more fun this year.
