Codorus Trout Unlimited was founded on the banks of York County’s Codorus Creek in 1988 by local anglers. Our purpose is to protect and retain an outstanding tailwater fishery formed quite by accident, when a local paper mill dammed the creek for its operations two decades before. The progeny of stocked brown trout took hold in the cold, clean water below the bottom release of Lake Marburg, near the Maryland line. The result is one of southern Pennsylvania’s sleeper wild trout streams. A truly farm-country creek in its character, our active work includes stabilizing the Codorus stream channel, reducing siltation and improving water quality as a grant facilitator and project manager. We are also very active in landowner relations and stewardship of this resource, which falls almost entirely on private land, to ensure access to this incredible fishery for generations to come. And like our partner chapters across the country, we are dedicated to sparking a passion for conservation, fishing, and the outdoors in young people, and increasing our fold to new and diverse groups of anglers and conservationists who will carry on our work into the future.
