The PFBC has issued a nice little pocket guide this year. I hope you get one with your summary book. If not, ask a dealer if he carries them. It has all the info you need to know the particulars of special programs and information relating to the Commonwealth Inland Waters.

Hope to see you at the Forbes Trail Chapter Trout Unlimited’s banquet and raffle tomorrow. If you bought a ticket, you helped a good cause. The organization depends upon people like you to help with conservation, restoration of resources and education of people of all ages, particularly youth. Even though FTTU is Latrobe-based, it serves all of Westmoreland County.
