The Susquehanna chapter of Trout Unlimited will hold their annual meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 13. At the meeting, members will elect new directors and officers for 2020 and discuss the area of Big Pine Creek known as "The Stretch," as well as the Brown Trout Club program that works to keep the area well-stocked. 

"The Stretch" is a scenic, 2.8-mile section of Big Pine Creek below the mouth of Slate Run, stocked by staff from the tackle shop and club members, occasionally with the help of a few friends. Thanks to the efforts of Tom Finkbiner of the Slate Run Tackle Shop, Straub Brewery, and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, The Stretch has been converted into a destination for public trophy trout fishing.

Izzack Albright of Outcast Anglers will speak about the history, objectives, and successes of the Slate Run Tackle Shop's Brown Trout Club program and its efforts to let anglers experience world-class trophy trout fishing in this "catch and release" section of Pine Creek.
