Candlewood Fishing Camp is the ultimate bass fishing and camping experience for young anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. Nestled on 100 acres of woodlands with direct waterfront on Candlewood Lake, campers will fish for world class-sized smallmouth and largemouth bass with the top area fishing guides and tournament anglers. Candlewood Lake is repeatedly ranked in Bassmaster Magazine's Top 25 Best Lakes to Fish for Bass in the Country. Campers will learn how to implement the best techniques to target various species with a primary focus on post-spawn bass while fishing on state of the art fishing boats. Anglers will leave camp proficient in: topwaters, spinnerbaits, plastics, pitching a flipping grass, drop shotting, dock fishing and live bait. Campers will also learn to target the other gamefish species that inhabit the lake including crappie, perch, and trout. In the spirit of competitive fishing, they will engage in week-long tournaments that will recognize winners in the categories of biggest bass, most species caught, total weight and more. Other activities at camp include canoe fishing, shore fishing, night fishing, swimming, tubing, hiking, lure making, team-building activities and more. There is a strong emphasis on boating safety, sun protection, ethical catch-and-release practices, and building life-long friendships
