Fly Fishing at SUNY-ESF

The TroutBums have built a reputation for service work in Central New York and have organized various fishing expeditions throughout New York.

Club meetings are held biweekly on Wednesdays at 6 pm in Baker 145.


Our Goals Are:

  • To strengthen our relationships with members of the CNY community.
  • To continue to work for the care and preservation of the local waterways which make this region unique.
  • To share our knowledge the sport of fly fishing as well at the etiquette that should accompany it.
  • To improve our knowledge and awareness of our local waters.
