We often think of seafood as only coming from the ocean, but the US has freshwater fisheries as well.  Dr. Russell Cuhel will talk about how climate change is affecting the Lake Michigan ecosystem. He was featured in the 2020 MSNBC miniseries, “What’s Eating America”, when it looked at the collapse of the southern Lake Michigan perch fishery.

Everyone interested in the health of our fresh water fisheries should attend.

Meet new member Max Skirpan

Max writes to us:

“Hello! I am excited to be joining the Penn’s Woods West chapter of Trout Unlimited. I am looking forward to engaging in chapter meetings and being a part of efforts to preserve cold water fishing.

“I am fortunate to have grown up in a family of fishermen in Western PA. Since a young age, I have developed a fascination with the underwater world of fish – trout in particular. When I was very young, I remember the flies I tied hardly resembled anything in a trout’s diet. I really didn’t care because I loved to dream of one day becoming a trout fisherman.

“I graduated from Bucknell University in May of 2020 with a degree in Mechanicaal Engineering. I am currently working full time at a robotics company near Homewood, in Pittsburgh.

“I believe that there is no end to the trout fisherman’s education, and am looking forward to meeting other Chapter members and participating in meetings and conservation activities, whenever they start up again. Every time I fish, tie flies, talk to another fisherman, or even look at a stream, I learn something new and see trout in a new light. That is why I love fishing.
