Fishing has the potential to be a very meditative and calming activity that allows for group bonding and individual reflection.
Being near the water is often an environment that can aide in facilitating healing and regulation. Learning or practicing a traditional skill can be empowering and reconnecting.
TRS staff uses metaphorical transference to prompt participants about how their experience at the water is applicable to their lives.
What to expect
Due to permitting, TRS fishes at Nambe Lake.
It might be possible to fish either from the perimeter or sitting inside a kayak.
Fishing at the lake is catch and release.
Participants can expect to have their own space but stay relatively together as a group.
What you need to bring
TRS will provide poles, bait, lines, lures, and other accessories. If fishing in a kayak, TRS will provide all the necessary safety equipment as listed on the kayaking page.
Participants should wear clothes suitable to the environment and weather conditions, closed-toed shoes, and a hat or sunglasses. Participants may ask about bringing their own gear.
TRS is able to provide rain gear, Nalgene bottles, foldable camping chairs, and a First Aid kit.
