Action Alert: Send your letter to protect the Clean Water Act

The Importance of Headwater Streams
Please call your Senator to tell them that we need Clean Water.
A group of senators has begun work on legislation that would halt a draft rule that will restore Clean Water Act protections to some of the most important trout and salmon habitat in the country - small headwater streams. Please take a moment to tell your senator to oppose an attack against the Clean Water Act.
For 30 years, the Clean Water Act has been a great tool for restoring polluted trout and salmon streams, improving fishing across the country. In the last decade this great law has been picked apart by a series of Supreme Court cases. Some of the most important trout and salmon habitat across the country is now at risk - headwater streams. These small streams are not only important for spawning fish, but they are the building blocks for watersheds, ensuring downstream rivers maintain the water quality they need to support trout and salmon.
Whether you like fishing headwater streams, or larger downstream rivers, ensuring these streams are covered by the Clean Water Act means more and better fishing opportunities for you.
Please set aside a few moments to ensure these waters are clearly protected by the Clean Water Act.

Our New Look

Somewhere in Northcentral PA.......
We'd like to see your pictures here in the future!  You'll
always be able to click on the photo to enlarge

North Coast News is back!

Welcome to the chapters new website and meeting place.  Come on in, take a look around and get acquainted with our new surroundings.  We felt it was about time to upgrade the way we communicate with our chapter members and hope you like the makeover.  Something old, something new.....but definitely time to move on.

Here's what's important:  see that "follow by email" box over to the right?  Click on it and please input your email address and then hit submit.  That way, any time we post a new update to the chapter newsletter you get it automatically, just like you received our emails before.  It's just that simple, safe and secure and I promise you'll only receive chapter updates when necessary.

This is YOUR website.  If you have any ideas or recommendations please feel free to email the editor at or better yet leave a comment below.  I'd also ask for your contributions in a picture or two of a recent fishing trip you may have taken or a fly you like to tie, that sort of thing.  Email them to me with a short description and I'll include it in the next newsletter posting.  Let's keep this interesting for everyone and have some fun along the way shall we?

In the meantime, have a great summer and remember our next chapter meeting will be held in September.  We'll send out a notice when we get closer to that date.  Til then, tight lines!
