Projects and Updates

Montgomery Run Riparian Planting
Tubes were placed on the trees other than the white pine. We still have some pine and elderberry to be planted when the weather cools down. We had two planting days. Thanks to chapter members, Penn State students, DCNR personal and volunteers who helped make this project a success. We will go to the splash dam in the fall to see how well the trees fared this summer.

Chapter Summer Picnic

Mark your calendar for July 22, 2018 for the chapter summer picnic. We reserved the number 1 pavilion at Bendigo State Park.  The East Branch should fish very well at that time of the year so be sure and bring a rod and a friend or two along.

Stay tuned for more details.

Tracy McAfoos, Amidea Daniels, and Kelly Williams will be holding a woman’s introduction to fly fishing on March 17, 2018 at the Clarion Hotel in DuBois. We have openings for up to 25 women who would like to learn how to fly fish. This is a great opportunity and is open to members and non members alike. Participants will learn the skills necessary to be ready when the chance to be on the water comes. We will be providing a light lunch in addition to the fine instruction being offered.

For more information call Kelly at 814-591-1299.

On February 20, 2018 we will have Bill Anderson from the Little Juniata River Association as our speaker. Please plan to attend and bring a friend. We will be meeting at the conference room in the Mary Smeal Building at the DuBois Campus of Penn State. We will start at 7pm.

Starting this Thursday February 1st we will meet at the DEF Building at the DuBois Campus of Penn State room 202. The entrance is on campus side as the front is Career Link . This is the building on the corner of Rt. 255 and Sixth St. We will start at 6:30 and run till 9PM . You need not be a fly tier to join us. If you’re a beginner or need some explanation on how to tie a fly this is the place to be. There is no charge and we welcome everyone so please spread the word. The plan is to meet each Thursday to tie and talk for the next 6 weeks. There may be a fishing outing in March weather permitting.
