New, this year, is the Camp Napowan Fishing Area! Here we will be offering the Fishing merit badge, as done in previous years, as well as the Fly Fishing merit badge and the Fish and Wildlife Management merit badge.
Scouts with a passion for fishing also have the opportunity to achieve the Complete Angler Award by completing all of the merit badges offered in this area!
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never picked up a rod or tied a lure in your life, it is our goal to make fisherman of every scout with a desire to succeed. And now with boats dedicated to fishing programs, every leader and scout can get the full Lake Napowan experience.
Species available for fishing include largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike, and pan fish. There will be a selection of rods and reels available for rent, although personal gear is encouraged.
