47th annual dinner -Cancelled


The Board of Spring Creek Chapter Trout Unlimited has decided to cancel the 2020 annual banquet that was re-scheduled for July 25th.  This action was taken out of concern for chapter members considering the threat posed by potential exposure to COVID 19 at social gatherings.  To reach this decision the board was guided by input from Trout Unlimited National and information promulgated by the Centers for Disease Control and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. 

 

As a result of the cancelation those who have registered to attend may either: 

1.      Receive a refund for their registration fee,  or

2.      Donate their registration fee to the chapter, or

3.      Apply their registration toward the 2021 banquet

Please contact the chapter Treasurer, Mario Carrello, (mcarrello@gmail.com or 814-933-2182) to tell him what you would like to have done with your registration.

 

We intend to use Trout Unlimited’s online fund-raising tool to complete the raffle for the Orvis Rod outfit, and auction off a few other donated experiences/items.  Please watch the Chapter Facebook page, website, or your email for details.

"I fly fish a lot…locally, regionally, and nationally. Some view my commitment as an obsession, but for me, it’s a passionate, near-amorous experience. My favorite target fish are the cold water species comprised of brook, rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout. Of course, I have favorite destinations, and some secret ones too, where I spend anywhere from 100 to 150 days a year suited-up and coaxing trout to fur and feathered flies. However, when tethered in State College, I steal away to romance Spring Creek, my home water sweetheart." ...To read More Click Here

Chairman of National Leadership Council Mick McCorcle awards our President Robert Vierck the 2016 Gold Trout award as the nation's most outstanding TU Chapter

"The Spring Creek Chapter's conservation and angler science activities this year are more than enough to earn accolades: over 1.5 miles of riparian habitat planted, 13 in-stream structures built, water quality monitoring, redd count and angler surveys totaling more than 4,500 hours and valued at over $210,000.  However, behind all that conservation activity are the myriad was the chapter reaches into the community.  The chapter is constantly hosting events and activities, including their robust Veterans Service Partnership program where hundreds of vetrans have experience the power of both healing and community, thanks to SCCTU."  Mick McCorcle
