Trout power
 
Hello everyone,

I would like to let all the forum readers know about an event we will be having in Central/Upstate, NY. The event is called Trout Power. We have this event to raise awareness of one of NY's greatest fly fishing streams, the West Canada Creek. It would be great to get some of the forum members to attend this event. Please see the information below and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

If Trout live in it, you can probably drink it... That is an old saying, and if you are an advocate for clean cold water like Trout Power is, then you should listen to this... June 7, 8 and 9 up in New York on the West Canada Creek the folks from Trout Power are starting an initiative. Their mission is simple, but pretty powerful. They want to change the world and they way the world looks at clean water... not by its clarity but by the wild trout that live in it. Pretty profound but pretty true. No one has embraced this better than Pennsylvania. And Trout Power needs more advocated from PA to help out with spreading the word and participating in Trout Power. It is a weekend celebration and it is just about as much fun as you can have with your family and incorporate fishing at the same time. Friday is their casual gala and silent auction, and Saturday is their catch and release creel study where you can win $1000 for the longest brown trout in the creek. You see, on the West Canada they have everything going for them except wild brown trout, and they want to find out why, and that is why they need our help.


Also on Saturday is a 28 mile town wide yard sale, and BBQ, an Archery Tournament, a fishing derby for kids in one of the ponds and a concert. On Sunday they have a 5k cross country run, more yard sales, a rubber ducky race down one of the tribs for kids and a hot dog cookout.


Check out more of the events and details at Trout Power. They are starting the process to become a non-profit and it is a good cause.


Hope to see you there.


Thank you,
