2017 Chapter Picnic

AMCTU and Iron Furnace Chapter are once again co-hosting a chapter picnic at Dr. Walter Dick Park (“the fly project”) in Brookville on May 23, 2017 starting at 6 pm.

AMCTU provides the meat and Iron Furnace furnishes the table settings and the fixings. All we ask is that you bring a dish to share and a good appetite. Also bring your gear along as there is always time after we eat to do some fishing. We will be eating at 6 pm so arrive early and do some fishing or eat then fish.

Please come out and join in the fun and meet some of our TU friends. RSVP is not required but appreciated; contact George Kutskel at 814-771-4022 or maksak@comcast.net just so we have enough burgers and hot dogs.

Shannon is a PhD candidate at Penn State University and has been conducting fascinating telemetry studies of the movement of brook trout. Shannon has a great blog about her research at thetroutlook.com.

Come learn how trout really think and how far they really travel. We are sure that this will be an informative and fun presentation.

February Membership Program

The next membership meeting/monthly program will be Tuesday February 21, 2017 at the Community Room in Martins Grocery Store in DuBois starting at 7 pm. February’s program will feature Kylie Maland and Luke Bobnar of the Western PA Conservancy (WPC) Watershed Conservation Program.

They will present their efforts to incorporate more green, sustainable practices into stream restoration efforts. Project examples include using vegetative elements (a.k.a. soil bioengineering) in restoration practices to provide cost-effective and resilient alternatives and/or supplements to traditional methods (like log and stone structures for in-stream habitat and bank stabilization) to provide even more ecological services and habitat benefits to those projects. They will also discuss large woody materials (LWM) projects in the Allegheny National Forest and how those are developing.

WPC was also recently awarded a Coldwater Heritage Partnership Planning Grant to study the watersheds of Clear Creek State Park and State Forest, so they will discuss that process and hopefully recruit some interested volunteers to assist with the effort.

This meeting is open to the public and all are welcome. For more information call George Kutskel at 814-371-9290.

Thanks for a great turn-out at our Fly Tying Roundtable. Lots of flies were tied and lots of advice was given out – some of it was even true!
