Boys Fishing / FlyFishing & Outdoor Skills Camps


In 2017, 24 Campers caught over 650 Largemouth Bass, and had a lot of fun in the process. Lake Bastrop continues to prove itself as a super location for the Outdoor Texas Fishing Camp. The goals of the Camp are to take each Camper and improve their knowledge and their skills as they relate to fresh water fishing. The Instructors make sure each Camper improves their abilities whether they are a beginner or a veteran fisherman.  South Shore Park on Lake Bastrop, with its new dining hall, lakefront pavillion, and lakefront cabins provides the perfect spot for Outdoor Texas Camps to maximize the Camps efforts for safety, learning, and fun.
