Bob Garrett's Talking Points: R.B. Winter events heat up as winter winds down

“Great things are done when man and mountain stream meet.”

Conservation banquet

Anglers and conservationists are invited to attend the 2013 Conservation Banquet hosted by the R.B. Winter Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

The banquet is March 22 at 6 p.m. at the Sunbury Social Club on the island between Sunbury and Northumberland.

Ken Okorn will give a presentation on touring and fishing in Wyoming. Ken is a life-long angler and fly-tier from the Carlisle area who has traveled and fished extensively. His focus will be on little-known streams with lots of scenery pictures. Okorn is a licensed guide for the Yellow Breeches Outfitters in Boiling Springs.

The evening, which includes a buffet dinner and wonderful camaraderie, is $25 per person. Please contact Harry Holliday (743-1666) with questions or to make your reservation.

The next monthly meeting of the R.B. Winter Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be held on Wednesday at the Towne Tavern in Lewisburg. Dinner starts at 6 p.m., and at 7 p.m. Don Daughenbugh, who is a fishing legend from the Williamsport area, will be the evening’s presenter.

Conservation corps

Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited’s Coldwater Conservation Corps will hold a water quality monitoring workshop at 9 a.m. Saturday in State College.

Participants will learn to use monitoring equipment, select monitoring locations, report an incident if observed and use the Trout Unlimited’s online data portal and mapping application.

To register, please send an email to Mitchell Blake at or call (814) 977-0007.
