FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
NEMACOLIN RAISES NEARLY $10,000 TO BENEFIT FISHING IN YOUGHIOGHENY
6,000 Yearling Trout Released
Farmington, PA (May 12, 2014) – The Orvis® Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort’s Field Club recently released 6,000 yearling trout (6–9 inches) to benefit the Middle Youghiogheny trophy trout waters. Over $10,000 was generated through two recent Stock The Yough sporting clay benefit events held at the Resort with such efforts in mind.
“In 2010, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) stocked sections of the Youghiogheny River with yearling trout (6-9 inches) and the trout flourished. As avid fishermen ourselves, we believe these yearling trout have a much better chance of survival than the typical fingerling which are less than seven inches,” said Matt Grobe, Director of Activities at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. “We are following the lead of the PFBC, and assisting in aging the class of fish in the Middle Youghiogheny River.”
Members of the Nemacolin Field Club and Activities teams were joined alongside staff from Orvis Pittsburgh, all of whom volunteered their time last week to stock eight sections of the Middle Youghiogheny with the yearling trout that were purchased from the fundraising event. Nemacolin’s Field Club is planning a fall Stock The Yough event, with the proceeds continuing to benefit the stocking of local waters. Information regarding this event will be forthcoming.
