Youth Fly Fishing & Conservation Camp

The Teen Trout & Conservation Camp is conducted in Pittsburg, NH by the New Hampshire State Council and it's supporting chapters through out the state.

Volunteers form Trout Unlimited host the camp for young adults that are 14-16 years of age.  The objectives are to teach the young men and women all about fly fishing and the need for cold water conservation.  The lessons include casting techniques, reading the water, and fly tying.  One of the most important aspects of the camp is to teach the campers the importance of preserving, protecting and reconnecting our cold water rsources in the state of New Hampshire.  During their stay at the camp the campers work with Trout Unlimited employees to enhance cold water resources in the Pittsburg area.
