Parking and entrance to the Church is at the rear of the building with access off of Campbell Street. The public is cordially invited to attend.

Good Luck on Opening Day

We want to wish the best of luck to everyone going out tomorrow for the Statewide opening of Trout Season. Although the weather does not look great, we hope that you will be able to get some time in on the stream. Remember to respect other anglers space, do not tresspass, pick up your litter or the litter from others, and most importantly, take a kid or someone who hasn’t experienced the first day of trout fishing with you. Share your stories and pictures with us. We would love to hear about your day and see your catch!

Bill O’Connor

It is with a heavy heart that we have to report that Bill O’Connor has passed away. Bill was a founding member of our Chapter and played a key role in the success of our Chapter and in the protection of the cold water fisheries in our area. He touched the lives of thousands and thousands of people and his influence will be felt for generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Karen and Chuck and the entire family.

Thank You or a Successful Fishing Flea Market

We want to thank everyone who came out for our fishing flea market yesterday. Your generosity allowed us to bring in over $5200. Without the support from you, and everyone who has donated to us, this fundraiser would not have been a success.  Our members have put in over 170 hours in preparing for and working during the fundraiser. We have lots of items left and if you are in need of something, let us know because we may have it.  Thank you again and all funds generated will be used in our Service Partnership Program and for conservation and restoration activities for our regions cold water fisheries.
