Women Anglers

Our mission is to promote the sport of fly-fishing among women.

Our goals are:

¨                 To create a friendly and supportive environment for women anglers.

¨                 To provide skill building workshops, presentations and demonstrations.

¨                 To organize single day or overnight fishing trips.

¨                 To provide opportunities to assist with conservation efforts.

¨                 To provide a means for women fly-fishers to meet, network, fish, and socialize.

Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Women Anglers!


Our next fishing date is Sunday, October 29.  Since this is our last fishing event for the year, let’s bring our own lunch and meet at 1pm to eat together. Then, we’ll start fishing around 2pm.


We will meet at the no-wading section of Fisherman’s Paradise (directions below).  You will need your license, rod, reel and other gear, but not your waders since it is no-wading at Fisherman’s Paradise.  Sunscreen and bug spray may be helpful to bring, too.  Fishing instruction will be provided for anyone who would like assistance.


Please RSVP by replying to this email (dmb490@gmail.com) so we know how many women to expect. “Maybe” is okay.  You can always email, call, or text me (814-880-8431) if your plans change. 


Directions to Fisherman's Paradise

From the Benner Pike (route PA-150), turn onto Paradise Hill Road and drive down the hill. At the "T" at the bottom of the hill, TURN LEFT onto Spring Creek Road.  Stay on this road for about a little less than ½ mile.  Pass the small gravel parking area and the Stackhouse building – both on your left.  The paved parking area is on your right.
