Angling Adventures | One

Partnership with the Roaring Fork Conservancy

Put on your rubber boots, pack your adventure gear, and get hooked on fishing!  Spend this week with educators from Roaring Fork Conservancy and ACES exploring various aquatic habitats at the River Center and Rock Bottom Ranch. You’ll discover aquatic insects that fish eat, learn how to fly fish and tie your own flies, explore the health of our rivers, and even catch a few fish for an up close investigation! Whether this is your first time casting a fly rod or your tenth time, you are bound to learn something new and have a lot of fun!

(Roaring Fork Conservancy will provide fly rods and reels for each camper.)

What To Bring:

Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!

How To Get There:

Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Rock Bottom Ranch whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.

BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to the Ranch in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more.
PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Rock Bottom Ranch visitors only. Please park efficiently. No parking in ACES lots during closed hours. We are an IDLE FREE organization.
