Fishing Trip Info!
The fishing trip is next weekend!  Here’s a few details for everyone that is signed up or thinking about signing up.  There’s still time to join us, but time is running out very fast!
Waivers:  Wellington Lake requires everyone to sign a waiver.  No Exceptions!  Please complete the digital waiver at the link below.  When completing the form, we will be in campsite 60G, our departure date is 5/19/2024, and use your own vehicle information even if you aren’t camping with us as it’s a required field.
Destination:  Wellington Lake, 21843 Stoney Pass Rd., Bailey, CO 80421
Meeting Location: Abiding Hope Nature School Parking Lot
Meet for Departure: 5/17/2024 at 5:00pm
Return:  5/19/2024 before 12pm
Weather:  Wellington Lake is at approximately 8,000ft elevation.  It will be a little chilly, so please plan accordingly.  Weather information for Wellington Lake can be found at the link below.
Fishing Regulations:  Wellington Lake is a private lake and fishing licenses are not required.  The lake is catch and release only.  The fine for killing a fish or not returning it to the water fast enough to survive is $50.  Only unscented artificial flies and lures may be used.  Live bait is prohibited.  Barbs on hooks must be crimped down.  Single hook lures are preferred.  Treble hooks will suffice as long as the barbs are crimped.
Fishing Gear:  Please bring your own fishing pole if you have one.  If you don’t have a pole, please contact Mr. Naber right away!  Scouts are welcomed and encouraged to bring their own fishing tackle as well, but it is not required.  The troop has purchased some dry and wet flies to fish with as well as some lures. Mr. Naber will teach scouts how to fish with artificial flies without using a fly fishing rod.  A pair of needle nose pliers can also be very helpful.
Canoeing Gear:  Everyone using a canoe must wear a personal floatation device (PFD).  No Exceptions.  We have several PFDs of varying sizes.  If you have your own PFD that you know fits you, please feel free to bring it with you if you want to do any canoeing.  Please keep in mind that canoeing weather dependant and is not guaranteed to take place.

Join us on what has become an annual tradition – a Fishing Campout! This year, we will be adding Canoeing to the menu as we bring up our new Canoe trailer (perhaps with a kayak thrown in for good measure)! More details to come as we get closer, but sign up today!
