PPWA 2016 Events
We have some great things in store for you! Please sign up ahead of time so we know that you're coming to these scheduled events. We send out more details to those who have registered as we get closer to each event.
From time to time, other fishing outings may arise so we highly recommend that you join us on FaceBook or our email list (contact Sharon@anglerscovey.com) to make sure you are notified of these promptly! Also, this is a great way to connect with others to carpool or caravan our events!
At Stargazers Theatre, 5:00 pm Doors Open
Join us for fly fishing films taken around the globe that get you excited about getting on the river! Plus a live guide auction, raffle, cash bar (beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks), and food. This event is a benefit for Project Healing Waters. $12 discount tickets at the Angler's Covey and Royal Gorge Anglers, $15 ONLINE or at the door.
Join us for fun winter fishing on the Arkansas River in Pueblo! Due to the colder winter temps, Pueblo is a great place to go and wet your line. There are certainly some additional challenges - staying warm, iced up guides, fewer bugs - but it's better than staying home and just THINKING about fishing! So ladies, layer up and join us! Please note: we recommend that more experienced anglers join us for this one.
Bring your own drinks and snacks and join us for a special happy hour to kick off the 2016 fly fishing season! Come see old friends, meet new ones, and talk about your fly fishing adventures past and those to come. This is also a great time to get your license, ask questions of where to go, what gear to use or upgrade to, etc. – anything to help you have a fantastic season of fishing!
Aquatic entomologist, author and fly-fishing guide Robert Younghanz, THE BUG GUY, is providing this special opportunity just for our PPWA members! This is a DON'T MISS on-stream bug seminar! We will spend 2-3 hours with expert on-stream instruction learning about the invertebrates and connecting the dots between the insects and the fly patterns we use to imitate them. The collecting kit contains all you need to gather and label samples to remind you of what you've learned even after the class. Robert is providing this class to us at half price, so let's fill it up and show him how much fun he can have with a bunch of lady anglers!
The San Juan River is a favorite of many anglers. The trout are generally more plentiful and larger than many other locations and you can float or wade. That doesn’t mean the fishing is easy, however! You will need to bring all of your gear (waders, flies, rod/reel, etc.) and you will choose where to fish for the weekend. A local Durango guide service, such as Fisheads, is a great option to get further information as to fly selection and suggestions of where to fish. You are on your own for lodging, but we recommend reserving a spot at Fishheads San Juan River Lodge. More information will be out soon. Mark your calendar and join us for this adventure!
12:00 - 5:00 p,m, Prospect Lake
$20 Fee - Bring a lunch!
Join us for a fun-filled day of adventure learning about and using kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddle boards and float tubes out on Prospect Lake at Memorial Park. This day will give you a taste of different water-related fun. Sponsored by Angler's Covey and Pikes Peak Outfitter, this is a great event to invite friends to play on the water with you- whether they fish or not! And because we chose local Prospect Lake, no wetsuits are required for trying SUPs, you can enjoy a shorter drive and plan to enjoy the day!
Rental fee of $20 for boats and liability waiver are required.
