Cub Scout Trout-O-Rees

Two Trout events are offered each weekend: (1) fish on Saturday OR (2) fish on Sunday morning.  Each December the lake at Camp Tahuaya is stocked with a truckload of Rainbow Trout from Missouri.  For 2020 we are again doubling the size of Camp Tahuaya’s annual end of December trout stocking.  Cub Scouts and parents catch and keep up to 6 Trout per person (12 Trout per parent/youth team). Cub Scouts enjoy a day of fishing with a parent, Trout-O-Ree patch, Prizes, lunch, fishing education programs.

NOTE:  Please make sure your group brings #10 OR smaller hooks. Recommended casting rigs are light 6′ or longer fishing rods rated for 4 LB to 10 LB line (2kg to 5kg) and loaded with 4 LB–5 LB test line. Shorter rods are harder to learn to cast. Bring several colors of PowerBait and #14 or #16 treble hook sizes.
