NFC: Creek Out 2002

All this talk about the Texas Fish Weekend has prompted me to post another invite to those of you who are interested. I am in the process of planning "Creek Out 2002" for the Erie Aquarium Society. This will be a day of mainly exploring the different aquatic habitats here in North West Pennsylvania. This is open to everyone but is geared more toward "rookies". It will be held the last Saturday of June or the 1st Saturday of July.

I got the idea to host another one for NFC or NANFA members or just anyone else who is interested in Late July or Early August. This could be a one or two day trip over a weekend. It would take us all the way down French Creek from the headwaters to where it flows into the Allegheny River 118 miles from the start.

There is a great article about collecting French Creek on the NFC web site http://www.nativefish.org/Articles/french.htm

If anyone is interested please let me know. For anyone interested in Darters, French Creek is a true paradise. I live about 5 minutes from the creek and know all sorts of great spots. I left the date open so we can pick which date will work the best.

Erie, PA is about 2 hours east of Cleveland, 90 minutes south of Buffalo, or about 2 hours north of Pittsburgh. There are lots of hotels at good prices as well. For those of you who might bring the family, Erie is home to an amusement park, a zoo, shopping, and a great State Park with a very clean sandy beach on Lake Erie for swimming. We are also only 2 hours away from Niagara Falls.

If these dates will not work out, but you would still like to collect on the creek just email me, I go all the time, and would love to have you join me, or I can point you to some good spots.
