Kiap-TU-Wish Fly Fishing Clinic

Conservation and fly fishing for the public through education

Teaching Conservation Through Fly Fishing

The Kiap-TU-Wish Chapter of Trout Unlimited hosts a periodic free fly fishing clinic for individuals aged 12 and above at Glen Park, on the Kinnickinnic River in River Falls. All levels of experience are encouraged to attend  for individuals 12 years of age and above.

We team with the City of River Falls to bring conservation and fly fishing to the public through education.

Kiap-TU-Wish members provided a loaner rods, reels, and line if requested. Typically there are ten or more people from TU to train and assist. Participants are asked to bring their own equipment (if they have it), along with bug repellent, hat, jacket and rain gear.

The last few years was a great success and very appreciated by the attendees. It happened because of great volunteerism from our chapter members. The following agenda items are typical of what goes on at our clinic:

Basic fly fishing introduction
What trout eat: a brief course in entomology
Rods, Rigging, and Flies
Lunch and mentoring discussions
Introduction to fly casting
One-on-one fly casting instruction
Fishing for trout on the Kinnickinnic with mentoring
