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, September 24 (meet at 2pm) at Spring Creek Road between Fisherman's Paradise and Route 550 (directions below).  You will need waders and boots in addition to your license with trout stamp, rod, reel and other gear. Water, sunscreen and bug spray may be helpful to bring, too.  Fishing instruction will be provided for anyone who would like assistance.  If you would like to borrow equipment, please let me know right away so that we may make arrangements with the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited.


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

Directions to the Spring Creek Road between Fisherman's Paradise and Route 550

From the Benner Pike (route PA-150), turn onto Paradise Hill Road and drive down the hill as if you were going to Fisherman's Paradise. At the "T" at the bottom of the hill, TURN RIGHT onto Spring Creek Road. Stay on this winding road (after approximately 0.8 mile you cross a bridge and stay right at the intersection with Barnes Lane; continue about another half mile). You will pass the first access parking area on the right (this is down a slight hill so it is a little hard to see); continue a short distance to the SECOND ACCESS parking area which is visible on the right and provides parking for several cars. THIS CAN BE RECOGNIZED BY A WOODEN PLATFORM WITH HANDICAP ACCESS TO THE STREAM AND WILL BE OUR OFFICIAL GATHERING AREA. If you pass this area and reach the intersection with Route 550, you have gone too far, but you can turn around and go back to the gathering area.
