PCTU Youth Fishing Day Cancelled

The Panhandle Chapter of Trout Unlimited regretfully announces that the 2015 Youth Fishing Day has been cancelled due to lack of participant sign ups as well as water temperatures prohibiting pond stocking. We apologize for the late decision, aware that this may effect busy family scheduling. We plan to hold the 2016 Youth Day, but at an earlier date, preferably the second weekend after school is out. We hope you consider joining us at that time.
