CACTU 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 coldwater 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.
