The Collegiate Peaks Chapter of Trout Unlimited and GARNA have teamed up with Salida Recreation for anoth>er year of Stream Explorers Fishing for brown trout on the Arkansas River above Salida.[/caption]
Stream Explorers is a statewide Trout Unlimited curriculum that introduces stream ecology, fly-tying and fly-fishing. Stream Explorers provides opportunities for youth to have several hands-on, science-oriented experiences with living aquatic organisms as well as developing basic fly-tying and fly-fishing skills.
Through these personal experiences, organizers hope all students will develop a rudimentary understanding of the beauty, complexity and dynamics of aquatic ecosystems and the fish they support.
Stream Explorers meet at the Salida Scout Hut, and on the last Friday, shuttle transportation will be provided to a fishing location. The program is free, but registration is required, and spots are limited.

This program is sponsored by the Collegiate Peaks Chapter of Trout Unlimited and GARNA members, with support from City of Salida Parks & Recreation and Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
