Rocky Mountain Flycasters is a local chapter of national Trout Unlimited. Our mission is to conserve, protect and restore area coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. There are currently over 900 members in the Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and Windsor area.
General Meetings are usually held at 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at the Ft Collins Senior Center, September through May. Meetings are open to the public, TU membership is not required. Meetings usually include a speaker, raffle, fly tying and business items. The speaker is frequently a professional guide or destination representative who discusses a specific fishing destination, techniques, and the ecology of a given area. The raffle offers fly fishing equipment and accessories. Fly tying, usually before the meeting starts, allows you to ask questions and learn the finer points of tying and what patterns work locally. Please see our Calendar for upcoming meeting dates.
We are currently involved in community outreach, educational, and restoration projects. Recently, Rocky Mountain Flycasters members were involved in the Poudre River Clean up, Sylvan Dale Picnic, Phantom Canyon Trail work, Eagle's Nest - Open Space shrub plantings and bank restoration, establishment of the Robert Behnke Scholarship fund for graduate studies in fisheries biology, and sent a student to the annual CTU Youth Conservation Camp.
