Beginning with only 20 members, The Pennsylvania Chapter of Trout Unlimited, was founded in 1963. In 1965, the name was changed to Penn’s Woods West. Today, it is the largest chapter in the state and one of the largest in the country.
PWWTU is constantly working to protect and improve trout waterways in our area. We are presently engaged in a long-term project to make Pine Creek in Pittsburgh’s North Hills a blue ribbon trout fishery within just a 30-minute drive from downtown!
We also sponsor Cabin Fever, the largest trout fishing show in Western PA, offer an annual bus trip to Fisherman’s Paradise in Bellefonte, PA, conduct fly tying classes, participate in local sports shows, underwrite sending high school students to various conservation and fly fishing schools and publish a monthly Hatches & Rises newsletter. Please bookmark this website and visit often because there’s always a lot going on.
The Board of Directors and Officers welcome your comments, suggestions and ideas to make your chapter membership both rewarding and enjoyable. Your involvement in chapter business and activities is encouraged and we hope you’ll be able to volunteer your talent and a little of your time to help the Chapter continue to be one of the most exciting, hard working and fun chapters in the country.
