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!


Chapter News

Stream Walk Conducted

Personnel from the Stream Habitat Section of the PA Fish and Boat Commission, along with ACTU members, recently conducted a stream walk along a portion of the fly fishing-only section of the Conewago Creek. The Chapter is currently engaged in discussions to partner with the Commission to undertake additional steam improvement projects to improve the habitat for the trout that live in this part of the Conewago. Stream work is tentatively planned for late July. Chapter members will receive additional details as plans are finalized. 

June Meeting Scheduled

The next monthly Chapter meeting is scheduled for 7 pm on Tuesday, June 15,
2021 at the Lake Heritage Pavilion. All Chapter members will receive an email prior to the meeting with a complete agenda and other meeting details. Look forward to seeing everyone there!

Annual Latimore Fishing Derby

The Chapter's annual Latimore Youth Fishing Derby took place on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at the Latimore Valley Fairgrounds. Despite a steady drizzle, the young anglers had an enjoyable time stocking trout from the Yellow Breeches Anglers' Association and then trying to catch the large fish! Thanks to all the parents, relatives, and friends who brought our participants to the stream. Hope to see everyone again next spring!
