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 Workday Scheduled for July 31!

It was decided at the June Chapter meeting that our next stream workday on the fly fishing-only section of the Conewago Creek will be Saturday, July 31. Personnel from the Stream Habitat Section of the PA Fish and Boat Commission will be on-hand to advise and assist. Work will include improvements recommended during the recent Conewago Creek stream walk with Stream Habitat Section personnel. This work is in advance of a major improvement effort involving the Chapter and the Fish and Boat Commission in 2022!

All members will receive an email before the workday containing the necessary details. A good member turnout will help ensure we can complete all the planned improvements! Hope to see you there!

July Meeting Scheduled

Our next Chapter meeting will take place at 7 pm on Tuesday, July 20, at the Lake Heritage pavilion. An agenda will be emailed to members prior to the meeting. All members are encouraged to attend to hear the latest Chapter news!
