We are extending an open invitation to all our membership as well as to our “friends” from neighboring trout and fly fishing clubs.

At noon we will once again hold a cookout style luncheon. For a $5 donation, you can enjoy a sandwich and all the fixings prepared by our resident chef Bill Myers and his crew. After lunch, we will hold a relaxed fundraising event of raffles and a silent auction. We will raffle off the Adopt-A-Trout rod and reel. There will be a variety of items available to choose from in the raffle and silent auction like custom rods and guided fishing trips to fly boxes and so on. The list of items is growing as our donations and purchases are ongoing.

* The Annual Spring Outing is an outdoor rain or shine event. Please dress appropriately. We have experienced everything from bright sunshine and hot to cold and rainy. Remember you can always take a layer off. Early May can be surprisingly cool. The Trout Fishing Technique Clinic will be held in the stream, attendees will be bankside. The trails along the stream may be soft and muddy in May.

** LECTU only accepts checks and cash for the fundraising event. Please plan accordingly.
