Sara Muller

Title: "Brook Trout from the Inside Out"

Sara Mueller is a PhD candidate at Penn State studying the phenotypic and genetic variation of Pennsylvania Brook Trout. For such a well-known species, Sara is finding new ways to look at these glorious fish. In her research, she uses medical CT scans to examine the differences in skulls among populations. She is also in the progress of looking deeper at the genetic profiles of native and stocked brookies. Finally, Sara has a new angler science project looking at the coloration and pattern variation of Brook and Brown Trout. Listen in to find out how you can contribute to her work!

"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.

2016 National "Gold Trout" Award

 

Chairman of National Leadership Council Mick McCorcle awards our President Robert Vierck the 2016 Gold Trout award as the nation's most outstanding TU Chapter

"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
