Fly Fishing with River City Fly Fishing

July 8, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

You and your Little (ages 12+) are invited to learn how to fly fish and take home your own reel and rod kit!

Bigs and Littles (ages 12+) are invited for a free learn-to-fly-fish event on July 8th in Chaska, MN with River City Fly Fishing! River City Fly Fishing is a Minnesota-based nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting young people to the outdoors. This class will teach the basics of fly fishing. Topics will include tackle (rods, reels, lines, leaders, flies), casting, knots, local fly fishing opportunities, safety, conservation, and etiquette.

Due to the nature of this event and the equipment involved, this activity is recommended for Littles ages 12 and above. After a morning session of conversation and learning, each participant (Bigs AND Littles) will receive their own fly rod and reel kit to keep and use on the lake in the park!

*NOTE: A Minnesota fishing license is required to fish during the event. One-day (or season-long licenses) can be purchased here.

WEATHER: Dress for the weather – we will proceed if it rains, but we’ll reschedule if the weather turns severe.

FOOD: Food will not be provided, but feel free to pack your own picnic lunch! Participants are welcome to use the pavilion all afternoon.

Thank you so much to Will Swanson and River City Fly FIshing for making this event possible!
