ACTU is the Southcentral PA regional chapter of Trout Unlimited (TU). As a local, grassroots organization, we work to promote TU’s mission of conserving, protecting, and restoring North America's Coldwater fisheries and their watersheds right here in Adams County.

We work to support TU’s vision of ensuring robust populations of native and wild cold water fish will once again thrive within their Southern District, so our children and grandchildren can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters. Local improvement projects have included: Conewago Creek, Conococheague Creek, Marsh Creek, Mountain Creek, Latimore Creek and Opossum Creek.

Please note that ACTU is not strictly a fly fishing organization. We support and promote all types of trout fishing!

November Meeting Highlights!

During the November Officer/Board Member meeting, the Chapter leadership agreed to participate in, or sponsor, the following activities in 2022: man a table at the Heidlersburg Outdoor Show (February), stock the fly fishing-only section of the Conewago Creek (March/May/October), run the annual Lattimore Youth Fishing Derby (May), and demonstrate fly tying at the Southcentral PA Outdoors for Youth (SOY) program (June). In addition, the Chapter is planning a summer/fall outdoor event to celebrate our 40th year of partnering with the Northern Virginia Trout Unlimited Chapter! Finally, the acquisition of the Knouse property should also be finalized later in 2022. Keep up-to-date on these exciting events and others by attending Chapter meetings and following our social media posts.
