Thank You


Thank you to all who participated in the Chapter’s
first online Sweepstakes and Auction


The chapter held two online fundraisers this summer because our annual awards banquet and fundraiser was cancelled. The online sweepstakes for the Orvis Helios 3F rod/reel outfit donated by Fly Fisher's Paradise yielded $2,515 in gross ticket sales, while the proceeds from the 9 auctions were $2,005. 

Thank you to those who donated prizes, and to all who supported these two events by buying tickets or bidding. Funds raised will be used to fund chapter activities.

A Home Water Love Affair: Fishing Spring Creek by  Clifford Wurster, Life Member Trout Unlimited, Stream Restoration Volunteer, and Avid Flyfisher

"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

2016 National "Gold Trout" Award

 

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
