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.

Women Anglers! 

Our next fishing event is on Sunday, May 21 from 5pm – 7pm(ish) at Benner Spring Hatchery/Spring Creek (directions below).  We will fish the canyon section.  You will need waders and boots in addition to your license, rod, reel and other gear.  Water, sunscreen, and bug spray will be helpful to have, too.  Fishing instruction will be provided for anyone who would like assistance.


Please RSVP to Diane Brown (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.
