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!

Fall Stocking Completed

                           Members of both the Northern Virginia and Adams County
                           Chapters of Trout Unlimited jointly stocked several hundred
                           trout in the fly fishing-only section of the Conewago Creek on
                           October 6! This effort will provide additional angling opportunities
                           for the fall and winter months. Thanks so much to everyone in both Chapters who participated.

Chapter Picnic A Success!

        The annual ACTU Chapter picnic took place on Tuesday, September 21, at
        the Lake Heritage Community Center with members and honored guests in
        attendance. In addition to a great meal, the event included both silent and
        live auctions, award presentations, and prize drawings. Guest speakers
        included Catherine Wallen, District Manager for State Representative Torren
        Ecker, who provided a recap of fishing and boating bills that Representative
        Ecker is supporting, and Adams County Commissioner Marty Qually, who
        spoke of the importance of the Chapter's work and the support of the
        Commissioners for these endeavors.

Annual Chapter Tree and Shrub Planting Completed

Chapter members and a Biglerville High School student volunteer planted over 100 trees on September 27 along the fly fishing-only section of the Conewago Creek. The trees, which support the Chesapeake Bay Foundation Program, included pin oaks, willows, red buds, river birch, and pines. These trees will provide needed cover and help control erosion. Thanks to everyone who participated in this activity!
