Teen Adventures

Our Teen Fly Fishing Adventures are the perfect trips for both the first-time and experienced fly fisher. After extensive scouting, we have chosen the ideal locations for these adventures. During our 8-16 day Adventures, moderate backpacking or canoeing will bring you to some of the most beautiful backcountry scenery and action-packed fly fishing you could possibly imagine.

Regardless of your experience level, your guides will help you gain the experience to bring your fly fishing skills to the next level. By the end of your adventure, you will be a confident and independent fly fisherman/woman with the skills and knowledge to catch trout anywhere you go; your time spent traveling in a small group will help build your leadership and interpersonal skills, and the 5-10 hours you spent volunteering with local conservation organizations will foster your understanding of the importance of conservation and stewardship.

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was started in 2010 as a graduate thesis for my Master's Degree in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. The operating premise was simple - by coupling amazing wilderness fly fishing camps for teens with environmental education and service learning we can help inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists. We have been growing our unique list of trips and experiences ever since.

When it comes to choosing a summer program for your teen the options are endless. For the teen who loves to fish, be outside, and has a strong sense of adventure we have made the choice easy. We are the leader in teen fly fishing adventures and are dedicated to providing the best backcountry fly fishing experience with opportunities for teens to engage in leadership training, community service, and backcountry camping.
