2019 PVFF “Project Clean Stream” Clean-up

On Saturday, April 6th, fifteen members from the PVFF gathered along the banks of the Catoctin Creek to participate in the annual “Project Clean Stream”. The weather was beautiful and it was a great day to be outside. We all worked our way along the road and eventually down along the banks of Catoctin Creek and some of its tributaries.

As the fishing season heats up, take a few minutes out of your trip and pick up some trash on your way out of the stream. Clean water is vital to all aquatic life. Nothing is more frustrating than visiting your favorite fishing spot only to find discarded worm containers, beer cans and cigarette butts!

Once the clean-up was completed, some members were smart and went back down to the river to fish. Thanks again to all of the members for cleaning up our “Home Waters”. A special thanks goes out to all of the members who brought their children and grandchildren.
