Activities include:

Stream Walk: Walk the stream to learn what makes it a great place to wade and fish

Race rubber duckies to determine stream flow and current

Bug Hunt: Hunt and identify macro-invertebrates to determine stream health

Scavenger Hunt: Put it all together with a scavenger hunt to collect beads for a bracelet or lanyard

Tie It/Cast It/Fish It!: See if you can catch a wily trout or bass with a fly you tied yourself (Parents/Guardians invited to join in the fun!)
