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.

Calling all Ladies!!!

We have a group just for you!!!

“Women’s Outreach” for PWWTU. This new group was created so that we, as a local organization, can better listen to and serve the needs of female anglers.

Our aim is to partner with female anglers who: want to fish together, learn more about the sport, support each other’s fishing growth and have fun! As women – we have the ability to become some of the best anglers – and our chapter wants to support that growth!

If this group interests you or you have any questions – please contact Jodie Minor or Nora Cline at pwwtuwomen@gmail.com
