David R. Dewalle



Dave Dewalle was born and raised in St. Louis Missouri where my early interest in outdoors grew out of Boy Scouting and fishing and hunting mostly with my father, uncles and grandmother.  In those early years his experiences with fly fishing were limited to catching pumpkinseeds and bass in Ozark streams.   Later he pursued natural resources training by earning degrees in forestry at Mizzou and later in watershed management at Colorado State.   After coming to State College to take a position at Penn State in the Ecosystem Science and Management Department, Dave’s interest in trout fishing and Trout Unlimited projects have gradually developed.  During hia 38 -year career at Penn State, Dave taught watershed management courses and conducted research on impacts of land-use on water quality.  Recent experiences studying water quality data for Spring Creek and serving on the Spring Creek Watershed Atlas committee enhanced his interest in helping serve Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited in a more formal way.
