Come alone and meet new friends! Or bring friends, kids and anyone else.  Learn the basics of fishing, and fly fishing.

Already know a thing or two? Please help us as a volunteer at these events. Minnesota Trout Unlimited Education Coordinator Benji Kohn and Twin Cities Trout Unlimited Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Program Lead Rob Noirjean have planned some fun fishing outings for July and August.

Come join us, practice your casting, try out our equipment, and catch a few panfish. No trout in these waters, but it will still be a fun time!
