Rivercourse is a week long Coldwater Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp for up to 16 boys and girls ages 13-15, supported by TU chapters throughout North Carolina. The program emphasizes Trout Unlimited’s mission, the conservation of coldwater fisheries, while at the same time teaching campers the basics of fly fishing. It is held each year in June at Lake Logan near Canton, NC.
With the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina as a backdrop, campers are immersed in the outdoors as they learn about entomology, wetland ecology, stream sampling and restoration, and fly fishing.
Expert volunteers from Trout Unlimited, the NC Wildlife Resource Commission, the US Forest Service, the US Park Service, Warren Wilson College and other organizations spend time teaching and sharing about the important role our streams play in our environment.
In addition, fly-fishing and fly tying instruction will reinforce traditional values of patience, technique, attention to detail, and a general love of the outdoors. Come out and join us for an unforgettable week of fly fishing and fun.

The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
