Austin Price joins PWWTU

Greetings future fishing buddies! My family recently moved to McCandelss from DC and I am excited to see new water and meet new people who share a passion for fly fishing and the outdoors. 
As a child, my parents gave me a choice. I could spend Sunday mornings in the church pew with my mother, or I could spend the morning meandering through woods and streams with my father. Either way, I had to report back on my reflections with three ways I could be a better son, brother and community member. The outdoors is still the place where I find serenity, physical challenge, community, passion and self.  We also spent many hours together fishing for all kinds of cold water and warm water species, but walking a small stream looking for natives was always our favorite. 
After grad school at Pitt nearly a decade ago, I lived and worked in France, Cameroon, California and DC. Through the chaos of early career and travel I backpacked and camped some, but not as much as I would have liked. As the demands of career and family life stack up, I am finding the ability to live in the present moment that nature gives me is central to how I take care of myself. I am at my happiest sharing the joy of flipping over rocks and finding what is around the next bend in the stream with my family or on a solo trip. 
I am relatively new to fly-fishing and largely self taught so I look forward to learning from and with all of you. Thank you and tight lines!

Cecil Township Park Youth Fishing Derby a success

The happy smile on Brendan Ewig’s face reflects the spirit of the first annual Youth Fishing Derby held at Cecil Park on May 1, 2021. Brendan is 11 y.o. and the fish was released for others to angle for. Our chapter provided 220 # of rainbow trout (including 7 golden rainbows that the kids loved) for Miller’s Run, the creek that passes through the Cecil Township Park. Chapter support was designed to introduce youth to the magic of trout and angling for them. Fifty kids participated.

PWWTU Board Endorses “Energy Inovation Act” (H.R. 2307; 117th Congress)

Your Board has endorsed the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act introduced into the House of Representatives by Rep. Ted Deutsch (D, Florida; shown above). Click here for a quick summary of the Act. Click Here if you would also like to endorse the bill. ‘

TROUT UNLIMITED has endorsed the bill with the following statement:

Climate change is no longer a distant problem— it’s right here, right now in the form of rising temperatures, unpredictable floods, worsening droughts, and more intense wildfires. Climate change threatens the resilience of native trout and salmon fisheries, from the Rio Grande cutthroat trout of Colorado and New Mexico to the Eastern brook trout of Appalachia and the Northeast. Trout Unlimited believes it is time for Congress to seriously address the root cause of climate change. Congressman Deutch’s bill, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, would use market mechanisms to substantially reduce carbon emissions—and help us save our fisheries, the health of our communities, and the watersheds on which they rely.
