Sign up for Lake Logan camps under way

Registration is under way for the Rivercourse Coldwater Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp at Lake Logan Center in Haywood County the week of June 19 - 24.

The program is designed to teach the ethics of coldwater conservation to youth and is sponsored by the North Carolina State Council of Trout Unlimited.

Campers will receive instruction by volunteer experts in specialties such as geology, entomology, herpetology, stream restoration techniques, wetlands ecology and environmental policy. 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.

Sixteen boys and girls ranging from 13-15 years of age will be selected to attend camp. The cost of camp is $595. Registration deadline is March 31. Tuition is not due until candidates have been notified of selection. or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
