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!

ACTU Hosts Walking Tour

     ACTU provided a walking tour of the Zeigler Mill Access Site to members of
     the South Mountain Partnership (SMP) on November 4. The visitors learned
     details of the property's acquisition, ACTU's 40-year partnership with the
     Northern Virginia TU Chapter, and stream improvements done over the past
     few decades. Finally, the SMP members heard the continued site
     improvements planned by ACTU with a recently awarded SMP grant -
     creating a walking trail, building teaching stations, and planting several
     hundred native trees and shrubs.
