2010 Stony Creek Anglers Adopt-A-Stream Project

This Saturday, July 31st, the Stony Creek Anglers are hosting their annual Adopt-A-Stream Project on the Stony Creek in Norristown, PA.  This year's stream bank restoration project will involve the construction of a log deflector reinforced with stone to decrease erosion and provide additional habitat for the trout near the "Meadow Bridge" site.

This year's project will again be overseen & managed by Karl Lutz, Habitat Manager from the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission.

If you're interested in helping in this project, the meetup time is 7:30 AM at the Stony Creek Anglers trout nursery in the Norristown Farm Park. Any and all assistance is welcomed. Tools and work gloves will be provided, however please bring adequate waders or wading boots as most of the project will take place in the water. Food & beverages to be served afterwards.

For more information on the Stony Creek Anglers, including maps of the park and directions to the nursery, visit their website HERE.


  1. Good thing's going on there.

    Thanks to all for your efforts.

  2. It is a great thing when people spend their time doing something worthwhile like this. I bet everyone will have fun too, if I could I'd fly out and join in!

  3. Worthy project and will pay off in the future. Our local TU club is working with Alabama Power on restoring the tailrace below the Smith Lake dam over the next year. At the moment the race is like fishing a ditch, with no place to wade and tight casting quarters. No overhead to speak of, mostly roll cast.
