Expand your Horizons

Think outside the box of PWWTU. There are 400 plus Chapters of Trout Unlimited in the country.  We have a ton of members (over 1,000) but few cold-water streams supporting trout. Why not wind up the computer (or pick up the phone) and contact a TU chapter from the surrounding area to see what they’re up to and how you might be able to help. Click Here .SW PA TU Chapters for a spreadsheet of likely SW and NW PA Chapters, their websites, and a contact. What’s to lose?  You might even get introduced to a stream full of brookies that you didn’t know about.

Women and Diversity

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 [email protected]
