Twenty kids from around the state of Montana and beyond will spend July 14-18, 2019 learning about cold water conservation, fly fishing, fly tying, watershed management and coldwater fisheries at Camp Watanopa on the banks of Georgetown Lake. We’ll take field trips to local streams, visit a fish hatchery and check out a completed habitat restoration project. Montana TU provides all fishing equipment and classroom supplies during the 5-day, 4-night camp.  Campers must be age 11-14 to be eligible for camp.

The fee is $400 to attend, which includes all meals, lodging & equipment use.  Scholarships are offered by local chapters.  Please inquire with your local chapter for an application if you are interested in receiving a scholarship. Georgetown Lake is located near Upper Rock Creek, Flint Creek, and between the towns of Philipsburg and Anaconda, Montana.
