Who We Are

We are 600+ volunteers in one of 48 Trout Unlimited Chapters in Pennsylvania.   The Commonwealth has over 13,000 TU members interested in the protection of our wild trout resources.  We restore streams through habitat improvement projects, conduct seminars on water quality and fisheries management.  We work to educate the next generation about the importance of clean water and wild trout.  We invite you to join us.

We're more than "just a fishing organization."  The work we accomplish is equally important to all those who enjoy outdoor sports or simply the beauty of nature.  In fact, clean water is the lifeblood of virtually every creature and plant on earth. 

Come join us as we enjoy and protect our local limestone streams.  Our waters are recognized by serious trout fishermen around the country and overseas.  The Letort is here, as is the Yellow Breeches.  We also are blessed with Green Spring and Big Spring.

New Book Available !!



CVTU’s new book, More of CVTU's Favorite Flies is now available. A sequel to our popular CVTU's Favorite Flies, this new book follows the same format, but is in full color.

When Fly of the Month was inaugurated in our monthly newsletter, members were challenged. "Do you have a secret weapon that you want to share with your fellow CVTU members? Do you have an invention that the trout just can't resist? Submit your favorite pattern...". 

The members responded, and these books are a compilation of over 11 years of Fly of the Month patterns. Some are classics, some are flies adapted from other areas that have been successful here, and some are inventions of the contributors. All are proven patterns that will be worthy additions to your fly box. Books may be purchased at monthly members meetings. The books are 6" x 9", and spiral bound to lay flat on your tying desk. Books are now in stock! To order either or both by mail, click below

Our next membership meeting will be Jan. 21st 2015.  Stop back later for details.
