Trout Waters Youth Camp
Please check back for 2023 dates!
A Fishing Buddies volunteer is paired one-on-one with a program participant for an evening of fishing on the West Branch of the Delaware River.
We will share the dates in 2023 as soon as they’re available.
Fishing locations generally center around Hale Eddy on the West Branch of the Delaware River.
Fishing Buddies Volunteers need to be able to:
1. Be at the fishing location by 5:30pm.
2. Waders on and ready to fish at 6:00pm (until dark).
3. Fishing Buddies do not fish, they assist the program participants in fishing.
4. Feel free to bring some of your favorite flies to share.
5. Any level of fishermen can be a Fishing Buddy.
Please contact Russ Smith at 607-237-7415 or RussSmith@stny.rr.com to sign up.
Being a Fishing Buddy can be one of the best ways for you to impact the future of our fly fishing sport and can become some of the most enjoyable days you will have on the water this year.
Please consider donating a couple hours of your time to enjoy some great fishing and help these kids get the most out of their camp this year!
