Sweetwater County Travel & Tourism has partnered with Trout Unlimited for a day of fishing at Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge (SNWR). On Saturday, 30 of the retreaters will have the chance to fly-fish from a drift boat along the Green River. The members of the Trout Unlimited Chapter #533 developed this female focused fly-fishing float. Hillary Walrath, Henry’s Fork Project Coordinator, says, “The idea is to give women a chance to learn about fly-fishing in a fun, supportive and hands-on environment. This day of fishing is ideal for those who love to be on the river, but also for those who are interested in immersing themselves into our wildlife but are unsure how.” To enable an attendee to sign up, they must be a Trout Unlimited Member and have their member number available for input when registering. If not already a member, please click here to join before registering for PWWR 2019. No repeat attendees from 2018, this option is only for attendees that have not had the chance to fly fish at the PWWR retreat.
OPTIONAL CASTING DEMONSTRATION

6PM - 7:30PM
Expedition Island | Green River, WY
There will be a casting clinic at the park to prepare the retreaters for their day on the water. Some fly rods will be provided. If you have your own gear we encourage you to bring it! We strongly encourage participants to attend this clinic so you can make the most of your day on the water, spending more time fishing rather than learning to cast.
