TU program focuses on year-round fishing

ALAMOSA — Please join SLV Chapter of Trout Unlimited for its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 31st at 7 p.m. at the SLV Health, Education and Conference Center at 1921 Main Street in Alamosa.

This month’s meeting will feature a program called “Fly Fishing Around the SLV, 12 Months a Year.” Don’t put away the fishing gear just yet until you see Deacon Aspinwall’s program Tuesday night October 31st.

With winter right around the corner, many fly fishers begin hanging up their gear: some replacing it with ice fishing tackle, others for winter sports equipment, and some abandoning the area altogether. Some may be surprised to learn that there are fly fishing opportunities in the area 52 weeks a year! This program will focus on Deacon’s monthly “fly fishing calendar,” where he’ll discuss strategies, locations, flies, gear, and the eight species he targets around the SLV at various times throughout the seasons.

For more information contact 719-378-2751.

As always the meeting is open to the public. Refreshments will be provided and a prize drawing will be held at the end of the meeting.

Trout Unlimited is dedicated to the conservation, preservation, and restoration of North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.
