2012 Stony Creek Anglers Trout Tournament

Holy smokes...it's Stony Creek Anglers Trout Tournament week!  Yup, time for my annual commercial.

No, I don't fish in it...I work it as a member of the club, and boy should it be an interesting tournament this year.  Why, you might ask?  Because the old dam (and the super deep holes) that everyone used to congregate around were removed by the State since last year's tourney.

That means different fishing holes to find up and down the creek, and possibly trickier fish to catch.  Either way, it's usually a great time for young and old, and I'm pumped that we finally got some rain this past weekend to make it a possibility.  Fish can't swim without water if you know what I mean.

Even if fishing for stockies in an environment like this isn't your thing (and honestly, it isn't mine), the tournament serves as the major fundraiser for our club each year.  As a cooperative trout nursery for the State of Pennsylvania, we have to foot the bill for pretty much everything but the fish...the biggest cost being food.  And believe me, it costs a lot of money to keep fish healthy and fed each year.  Club membership dues only go so far...

  1. Sounds cool. i'm going, yeah it's stockers, but at least it's a little competition with fellow anglers.

  2. Good luck on your tournament this weekend! We have baseball Saturday but I am thinking about heading down Sunday.
