LECTU Brown Trout Stocking
Testing has been completed by the hatchery and the results, expected by April 7, have not yet been received. Once those results are received, Mike Beachy will be notified and he will then apply for the stocking permit. Currently we plan on stocking the second week of May but that is flexible based on the testing results and the permit process.
NEITA is getting their brown trout from West Virginia this year.
Brandon reported that the newsletter is at the printer.
Cabela’s will be donating some reels. FlyMasters will be putting our outing on their web site and also sending us some merchandise. We purchased 3 rods and reels from Temple Fork at a deep discount. Total cost is $410. The check for the gaming license has cleared, which the application was submitted on March 25th. Mike Beachy will follow up when he returns from Colorado. Lee requested a check for $297.46 for Hoogie’s Sports for the hats and the jacket for Chris Wood.
The assignments for the outing are basically the same as last year.
There was a discussion about publicity for our May outing, especially since Chris Wood will attend. Brandon will write a press release for the newspapers. Some of the members will contact other fly fishing clubs.
The program will be Dave Arrington, rescheduled from the March meeting.
