As you may have noticed, we have been working hard on expanding our trip offerings to provide new and exciting wilderness experiences for our participants over the past few years. We have added trips to exciting and exotic locations such as Ascension Bay in the Yucatan and the fly fishing paradise of the Wind River mountain range in Wyoming. And while we certainly get excited about these new trips, our newest addition probably has us the most thrilled! LFFE is running its first trip dedicated solely for girls in Rocky Mountain National Park this summer.
This trip will be led by female guides, and is solely for girls entering 9th grade to girls entering their freshman year of college. The dates are July 14 - 23, with arrival and departure at Denver International Airport. This trip will be focused on backpacking to some secluded alpine lakes near tree-line in America's highest national park. These lakes are full of native trout who rarely see pressure from anglers, and the fishing is lights out during the short alpine summer. After their time in the park, and a community service project, the girls will hunt for trophy brown and rainbow trout on the world-class Colorado River before heading home.
Our mission is to inspire future generations of conservationists through hands-on experiences with wild places. We believe that fly fishing is the perfect vehicle to explore many of our natural places across the country and in our own backyards. Participation in outdoor activities has stagnated or declined across much of the U.S., but women’s participation in fly fishing has been increasing significantly over the past decade. We hope to encourage this trend, and so we are proud that we are finally able to offer one of our incredible Expeditions as an all-female trip. Please share this information with anyone you may think would be interested, and let's get more people involved in fly fishing and conservation!
