SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH EVENT OPTIONS:
CHOOSE ONLY ONE OPTION PER REGISTRANT
Option 1: Fly Fishing, Casting & Tying l Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge
Sweetwater County Travel & Tourism has partnered with Trout Unlimited for a day of fishing at Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge (SNWR). On Saturday, 30 of the retreaters will have the chance to fly-fish from a drift boat along the Green River. The members of the Trout Unlimited Chapter #533 developed this female focused fly-fishing float. Hillary Walrath, Henry’s Fork Project Coordinator, says,
“The idea is to give women a chance to learn about fly-fishing in a fun, supportive and hands-on environment. This day of fishing is ideal for those who love to be on the river, but also for those who are interested in immersing themselves into our wildlife but are unsure how.”
You must be a Trout Unlimited Member and provide member ID in follow-up email after registering for the PWWR event. No repeat PWWR Fly Fishing attendees can choose this option – only those whom did not have the chance in 2018 can sign up.

The Proud Wyoming Woman Retreat (PWWR) was created and developed by Jenissa Meredith, Executive Director of Sweetwater County Travel & Tourism.
“Wyoming is more than a place of residence. It is way of life. I was born in Cheyenne and grew up in Rock Springs. I attended Western Wyoming Community College and the University of Wyoming. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I chose to come back home to Sweetwater County to raise my children and use my education to develop in this career that I love. I have tremendous pride in Sweetwater County and in the state of Wyoming and I know that many other women feel the same way. I want this retreat to reflect the pride that originated at the time of women’s suffrage and that lives on today. I want it to reflect the ideals and unique lifestyles of a Proud Wyoming Woman.”
