Every boy loves the challenge of dropping a line in the Guadalupe and waiting to see what may bite at the other end. La Junta’s fishing program is designed to capture this desire and give it the foundation of skill to make it enjoyable for life.
La Junta’s fishermen go through most every facet of fishing as a sport – from casting and knot tying, to selecting bait and identifying fish, to catching and cleaning the big one. Equipment and classes vary with age. Little guys start with cane poles and while the older, more experienced campers might work their way up to fly rods and tying their own lures.
With our series of dams, Camp La Junta can feed and cultivate a number of “secret fishin’ holes” hiding bass, perch, sunfish and catfish – ample fish for everyone. Although we mostly catch and release, the term ends with a lesson on how to prepare a tasty outdoor meal, sampled by all.
This activity is offered to all campers.
