Auction and Sweepstakees 

The Annual Dinner and Fundraiser has been the Chapter's primary fundraising activity, but the 2021 event was cancelled to protect members and guests from exposure to COVID 19. 

As a result the Chapter is conducting an online Auction and two sweepstakes running now through 6:00 PM on April 12.

One sweepstake is for a Hardy rod/reel outfit donated by Flyfisher's Paradise. And the second is for a handmade bamboo rod to raise money for the Sparrow Run Project.

Volunteers Needed for the Veterans Service Program Restart


During the pandemic the Leadership Team of the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited (SCCTU) Veterans Service Program (VSP) has been busy at work redesigning the program to better meet the needs of Veterans and the fishing public at large. At their last meeting the Board of Directors approved the new design. The VSP team is now preparing for a February launch of the new program.  Of course, the launch depends on the status of COVID-19 in our first priority must be the safety of our community. However, we want to be prepared for an opening as soon as is possible! That’s where we need you!


In order for us to meet the needs of the veterans we serve through VSP we will need volunteers to support all aspects of the operation. Of course a critical role will be sufficient numbers of Streamside Coaches (formerly known as Streamside Mentors). The Streamside Coaches will work directly with our guest Veterans to assist them in learning how to become independent fly fishermen/women. Of course we welcome volunteers in other roles as well.


Please consider serving our Veteran guests as well as further developing your own fly-fishing skills by volunteering as a Streamside Coach or in another role. For additional information please contact Bob Sills at or Ray Faczan at


Please watch the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited Website and your email for further scheduling details as we get into the New Year. 


2019 Accomplishments


A Home Water Love Affair: Fishing Spring Creek by  Clifford Wurster, Life Member Trout Unlimited, Stream Restoration Volunteer, and Avid Flyfisher

"I fly fish a lot…locally, regionally, and nationally. Some view my commitment as an obsession, but for me, it’s a passionate, near-amorous experience. My favorite target fish are the cold water species comprised of brook, rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout. Of course, I have favorite destinations, and some secret ones too, where I spend anywhere from 100 to 150 days a year suited-up and coaxing trout to fur and feathered flies. However, when tethered in State College, I steal away to romance Spring Creek, my home water sweetheart." ...To read More Click Here

"The Spring Creek Chapter's conservation and angler science activities this year are more than enough to earn accolades: over 1.5 miles of riparian habitat planted, 13 in-stream structures built, water quality monitoring, redd count and angler surveys totaling more than 4,500 hours and valued at over $210,000.  However, behind all that conservation activity are the myriad was the chapter reaches into the community.  The chapter is constantly hosting events and activities, including their robust Veterans Service Partnership program where hundreds of vetrans have experience the power of both healing and community, thanks to SCCTU."  Mick McCorcle
