Wild Trout Summit

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, along with TCO Fly Shop and the PA Council of Trout Unlimited, held the Pennsylvania Wild Trout Summit on August 26 in Pleasant Gap. The first of its kind in the state, it was attended by over 240 people and attendees were provided with a tremendous amount of information. This summit is only the first of hopefully many more gatherings where all parties concerned about wild trout can come together so that we (the anglers, conservationists, biologists, etc) can work to protect and further enhance the wild trout. For those who were not able to attend the meeting, the PFBC has posted videos and documents of the entire summit on their website.
