Veterans and SCCTU volunteers started twice a month fishing sessions at Fishermans Paradise as part of our new Veterans Service Program (VSP). They were great nights teaching, learning, laughing and catching some fish.  Veterans from all branches and eras attended.


The group meets the second and fourth Thursday of the month, 5:30 to dusk at Fisherman's Paradise, Bellefonte, PA. Fishing will be in the no wade and fly fishing only area or the all tackle and wade areas along the creek.
