Fishing in Mt. Evans Wilderness


Boulder Valley Inner City Outings is an all-volunteer outreach program of the Sierra Club that takes children from low-income families on free nature outings to enrich their lives and to build a new and more diverse generation of environmental stewards. We will launch a tenkara academy in spring of 2016 that needs volunteers to teach tenkara casting, kebari tying, and general principles and etiquette of fly fishing.

Tenkara is a minimalist form of fly fishing well-suited for use on the hiking and backpacking trips that are the mainstay of Boulder Valley ICO. Our academy will include local, single-day flycasting events and multi-day car camping and backpacking trips that also feature fly fishing.

To get started, please visit the volunteer page of our website and follow the instructions to "Quick Join" the program.


Once you have created your profile on our account, you can sign up for outings. Note that we often do not begin processing a volunteer application until we see that you have signed up for an outing or two.
