GO FISH VCU summer camp

May 19, 2012 8:33am

Looking for fun outdoor learning adventure for your middle-schooler? VCU Rice Center presents GO FISH!!! A Week of Fishing and Exploration for rising 6th to rising 9th grade students.

Join our Aquatic Ecology team as we investigate some of Virginia’s fascinating lakes, streams, wetlands, and rivers. As an environmental scientist, you will canoe the James River, help to restore a damaged stream, and learn how the search for ‘fool’s gold’ during the Civil War turned a normal creek bright orange! You will collect water chemistry data, study fish, aquatic insects and underwater vegetation, and determine how healthy our freshwater ecosystems are. Don’t miss this week of fun investigating the wonderful world under water!

Instructors: Amanda Schutt, Aquatic Biologist; Will Isenberg, Water Quality Specialist

  • July 16th to 19th
  • Approximate Times: 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Cost: $300 per student

Learn about fishing, fish biology and aquatic ecosystems in this exciting week-long day camp. Students will get a chance to cast lures for smallmouth and largemouth bass, stalk wily stream fish in clear, cool, forested streams, and angle for a chance at doing battle with a mighty James River catfish. All fishing tackle is provided.

Instructors: Captain Mike Ostrander, Fishing Guide and Owner, James River Fishing School; Captain Dave Hopler, M.S. Fisheries Biologist, Virginia Commonwealth University

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
