FISHING CLINIC FOR THE DISABLED JUNE 25, 2016

 

  

TO: All Participants, Volunteers & News Reporters.

 

It has been a year or two since you have heard from us due to low water levels making the fishing unsatisfactory, however the climate has changed to give us more water and great fishing.

 

Our clinic is held for disabled and physically challenged men women and children from all of the urban and rural areas within the State of Colorado. We show them how, even with their physical and mental disabilities, they can enjoy this exciting recreational activity. The clinic also reinforces our commitment to help build their self-esteem and confidence as they strive to conquer their psychological physical barriers to the out-of-doors.


IT IS ALWAYS A FUN DAY. The invitation is open for you and your family and/or any member of your staff to attend this heartwarming sight.

 

All of the severely disabled should be accompanied by a volunteer/staff member who likes to fish. The fishing takes place from a dam and shorelines of a spring fed lake with a variety of trout in full view of the magnificent Sangre de Cristo Mountains. During June we can expect a possible afternoon shower, therefore, all participants should be supplied with appropriate warm/rain gear. They should also bring a sack lunch which we will supplement with some drinks. Each of the disabled will be entitled to take two fish with them if they desire, therefore an appropriate container should be included.

 

We are at an elevation of 9,300 feet. Anyone with respiratory or heart problems should take note of this fact. We have a nice covered Pavilion with a concrete floor by the lake accessible for wheelchairs.

 

We are approximately 13 miles east of Westcliffe off SH 96 2.2 miles on CR 328 (Rosita Rd.) to our entrance on the right. Call 719-783-2007 for further directions.
