Women Anglers

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

Our goals are:

  • 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.

The SCCTU Women Anglers would like to honor a very special woman angler who has set up an endowment called the "Jean Brenchley Women Angler Support Fund" to support current and future women anglers to come. This fund has been set up specifically to promote the sport of fly fishing for women and help the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited develop a strong female presence. This fund will provide yearly monies that the SCCTU Women Anglers will use to teach fly fishing skills to the women who join us. Learn more about Jean and her fly-fishing journey

Upcoming Events:

Women Anglers Fishing Event

June 23rd, 2019
2pm - 4pm
The Rock - Spring Creek

Join The Women Anglers group for their next fishing event on Sunday, June 23rd from 2 - 4 pm at "The Rock" Beginners are welcome!

Directions to “The Rock” in Bellefonte
The Rock is located along Rock Road between Fox Hill Road and Trout Road. We will meet at the scenic location along Spring Creek known as "The Rock" and spread out to fish in this vicinity. One way you can drive from State College to "The Rock" is to take Fox Hill Road about one mile beyond the entrance to the University Park Airport. Turn right onto Rock Road, drive about one mile, and turn left into the gravel parking lot. The area we will fish is identified by an old metal bridge (which is closed) crossing Spring Creek and the large rocky cliff across the stream, and hence the name, The Rock.

Please RSVP to mandee@araypgh.com if you plan to attend!
