Central PA, 2013 Banquet, EAS Grant

The Third Annual trip to Central Pennsylvania is going to once again take place on Memorial Day weekend. We will be calling the Feathered Hook in Coburn, PA our "Home Base". That means breakfast with Jonas every morning to start your day. If you have not met Jonus, Imagine a comedian cooking you breakfast while making you laugh so hard it hurts.

Last year the Fishing was amazing with great Sulphur Hatches on Spring Creek and the tail end of the Green Drakes. March Browns, Sulphurs and Stoneflies on the Little Juniata. This year we intend to spend at least a day on Penns Creek and Fishing Creek as well. There are many options in this region of PA from within walking distance to a 1 Hour drive, you can be on some of the best water in the country. 
At this time the trip is 100% Full.


3rd Annual WRTU Banquet is to be held Saturday October 12, 2013 from 6PM -10PM 

 Guest Speaker April Vokey of FlyGal and the Dean River Lodge in BC, Canada.

The 2nd Annual Western Reserve TU Banquet and Clam Bake was a success with fundraising, food and entertainment.
A huge Thank you to our sponsors for our Banquet and donations of Raffle items.

The First ever Ohio Embrace a Stream Grant was applied for and won by the Western Reserve Chapter of TU.  This Grant was being used in conjunction with the Chestnut Ridge Chapter or TU to Buffer the effects of Acid Mine Drainage in the Youghiogheny River Watershed.   Art Preiksa Treasurer and Jim Geary President visited the sites again on October 20th to collect water samples from Big Piney, Little Piney, and Glade Run above and below the  Alkaline Sand additions to test for PH and dissolved metals as well as Macro-invertebrates above and  below the sites where our chapter added the Alkaline Sand. 

In 2002, this stream had no Brook Trout living in its waters.  The Acid drainage from the mines in the area have been treated in multiple locations to buffer the Acid with Alkaline Sand AKA Pulverized Limestone rock which is a sand consistency with small pebbles.
