Trout Unlimited of California has announced its second annual Sierra Trout Camp. This weekend event will be held July 6-7th, 2013 at the internationally renowned UC Berkeley Sagehen Creek Field Station located on Sagehen Creek, just 10 miles north of Truckee, CA.

Participants will learn how to fish and tie their own flies. They will also learn about stream ecology, cutthroat trout restoration, stream physics and chemistry, fishing etiquette and aquatic entomology.
