You are invited to join us by becoming a member, joining our mailing list, and learning more about fishing and conservation in your own backyard. The Adams County Trout Unlimited Chapter IACTU) was started in 1977 by a group of anglers and conservationists interested in restoring and enhancing a section of Conewago Creek in Adams County, PA. Over time, the Chapter grew to expand conservation and restoration efforts to include: • Conococheague Creek • Latimore Creek • Marsh Creek • Mountain Creek • Opossum Creek • Toms Creek In 2004, ACTU was recognized as the best Trout Unlimited chapter in the country by receiving the National Gold Trout Award for the chapter’s contribution to the cause of cold-water conservation! As noteworthy, ACTU received the Edward J. Urbas Award for the best Pennsylvania chapter in 2004 and 2020! Our chapter has grown and flourished and now includes some 250 members. Members enjoy the benefits of a network of like-minded, knowledgeable anglers. We hone our fishing and fly-tying skills through seminars, talks, and demonstrations at our monthly gatherings. We fund and participate in local stream conservation projects and educational youth programs, such as “Trout in the Classroom” and the Latimore Creek Youth Fishing Derby. We strive to continually maintain an active schedule of fundraising, stream improvement, landowner relations, and education and public relations efforts. Monthly gatherings are held at 7:00 pm on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Adams County Natural Resources and Agriculture Center, 670 Old Harrisburg Road (Bus. Rt.15), Gettysburg.
